Books to Travel By

Travel ChestAfter exhaustive searches of trip advisor and downloaded tips from Fodor, Frommer, and Rick Steves, I needed a little fiction to sustain me on my trip.  Since Scotland is on my itinerary, Diane Gabaldon’s Outlander series and a friend’s suggestion – Mary Stewart’s The Stormy Petrel – will be good starts.  I may bring my trainers and mimic The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry across Hadrian’s Wall and through the Cotswolds, and the new Maggie Hope mystery will be a great companion in London.

I hope to find a Peter May mystery in a bookstore, and maybe Sophie Hannah’s new resurrection of Agatha Christie’s Poirot in The Monogram Murders, but I have an old Jane Gardam paperback with me just in case.

And, of course, I have all the back issues of New Yorkers to catch up on…

  1. Where are you at in the series?
    Between my books and my knitting, it’s a wonder I have room for any clothes when I pack – you sound the same 🙂 Enjoy your travels!

  2. Hey, Rosemary! Check out this month’s National Geographic issue of the first standing stones of Scotland. Push through them and meet Jamie for me. Anita Benson Bradley
