It's that time of year again - I'm going on holiday, and as usual I am presented with the problem of what on earth to read.
It's not as if I don't have a lack of choice. I have three bookcases full of tempting titles that I would love to read. However, I am only going for a week, and I can't cart 800 books to Cornwall. I've decided to take the train, and I don't think I'd be popular.
So, I've been pulling books from shelves, replacing them, grabbing more, and there are now quite a number on the spare bed. Look.
That's 21 books for a week. I don't think I'm being very sensible. And besides - I'm going to du Maurier country ... surely I ought to take more of her work? I'm not spoiled for choice there either - there's an entire shelf asking me to take my pick ....
Which one do I read?
I need help - I need directing. Someone come to my rescue!
P.S. I'm also planning on buying at least one of the new Bloomsbury reprints that Simon has ordered me to read .... that takes my pile up to 22 .....
