There are moments on this trip where I read every second of every minute for days straight – and then at other times, not at all. There are book exchanges at homestays or small bookstores filled with stories that backpackers left behind. And so it goes; you end up reading whatever random book calls out to you and is a decent price, aka less than $2.
I have noticed that the last 3 books I have read all relate to India in some form or another, which is psyching me up to have at go at backpacking through that contradictory country. I have also noticed that I end up reading books about a place right before going there, only to wish that I still had that book in hand while in the place itself. Most of the books are fiction and by the time I finish, I am obsessed with the author, and desperately need to know the story of his/her life.
These are my reads so far:
I would love to hear any recommendations you have for books I should keep an eye out for.
