I suggest reading Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code or Angels and Demons. These two is actually two of the books I had difficulty putting down. Therefore, nice books to read while travelling.


When I was doing long-term travel, I read lots of books, usually ones I picked up for free at hostels. But after a while I too decided that I'd like to use this time to read some of the classics. So I bought Les Miserables. It was a good choice because a) it satisfied the criteria of being a classic b) was long, so it lasted me a while, and c) was interesting but not a page-turner that I couldn't put down. You want a book that lets you fill time constructively when you have nothing else to do (waiting for train, unwinding before bed, etc.) but not so engaging that you'd rather read than experience the world around you. Years later I saw the play in London. It was incredible!!



Is that you or Billy Elliott?



Great book to read while traveling: A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry. It's maybe...600 pages? Goes by quick - it'll change your life.
