Musing Mondays (Aug.8)

This week’s Musing Mondays from Should Be Reading asks…

“This week’s musing asks…

If you were (are) going on vacation, what books would you take with you?

From my favourites I would take some Agatha Christies like Cards on the Table, Evil Under the Sun, Miss Marple: The Complete Short Stories, The Pale Horse; etc. Or give Bram Stoker’s Dracula another re-read. From my yet to be read books I think I would take something light like Alan Bradley’s The Weed that Strings the Hangman’s Bag or A Red Herring Without Mustard. Or maybe something I have wanted to read for a long time but have never got around to, like Charles Dickens’ Bleak House.



    1. Thanks!

      I do need a vacation if I am ever to read Bleak House! I don’t dare to open it now as my work takes up much of my time and I don’t think this is the right time for starting a book like that. Also, its huge bulk will make it hard to carry around. Sigh!

    1. Short stories are perfect as vacation reads. Incidentally, I tend to read more when I am stressed. So, I get more reading done when I work rather then when I am on vacation.

    1. I love re-reading! I guess I find comfort in taking refuge in what I already know. Reminds me of all the good times I had when I originally read them.

      Agatha Christie is the author I re-read the most often, which reminds me I may soon need to seek comfort in one of her many mystery yarns as work has been getting the better of me. 😦
