I just want to make the following two assertions. Firstly, everyone loves to go on holidays. Secondly, everyone faces major challenges when it comes to packing their bags. With today’s size and weight limits on free baggage allowances, we are forced to think twice about the stuff that we put into our bags. If you are one of those people who only has the time to read a book when you are on holiday, then you have a problem, because somehow you must decide what books to take along with you and what books you leave at home. This surely is not ideal, as we cannot anticipate the type of mood we will be in that decides what book we want to read. Will you prefer an adventurous science fiction book or some wonderful romantic story?
Kindle books are the solution to this problem, for they provide you with any story you could possibly want to read. They are just the best invention for all the bookworms out there, as you can stock up on all your favourite stories. You are in the mood for adventurous science fiction? Just download Stieg Larsson’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo e-book before boarding. This book is the first one in a trilogy, and was the inspiration and basis for the Swedish movies, which were later again re-made by Hollywood starring Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara. I advise you to see the Swedish version.
If you are addicted to romantic stories the Eat, Pray, Love ebook by Elizabeth Gilbert will be your favourite holiday companion. It is not only a bestseller, but also a guide for how to enjoy life. It is about a woman who travels to Rome, India and Bali in order to find herself, and ‘everything’. In Rome she experiences absolute indulgence and pleasure. In India she is able to return to a state of meditation and at her last stop in Bali she achieves happiness with a sense of peace and balance. Doesn’t that just sound like a perfect book for the holidays!
