This morning, I walked to get espresso with my good friend Izzy, and we have been speaking about books. “I simply learn True Biz,” she advised me. “The ending was SO GOOD.” In the meantime, I’m nearly carried out with Demon Copperhead however pacing myself as a result of I by no means need it to finish. I additionally lately tore via the hilarious divorce novel Actually Good, Truly (even the title made me snigger), and The Visitor and All My Rage and Banyan Moon are on my bedside desk, begging to be picked up subsequent.
“You realize what could be superb?” I advised Izzy, as we walked as much as her stoop. “A studying trip, no youngsters allowed, the place you pack three or 4 books and also you learn your entire time, on the seaside or in a park or on the lodge or wherever you might be. You do nothing however learn. You’ll be able to’t come residence till they’re carried out.”
“I need to go,” she mentioned, lingering. “Oh my god, what if we learn the identical books and mentioned them at dinner?!”
We stared at one another, eyes broad, stupefied into silence.
“A e book membership trip,” she whispered.
Now I can’t cease occupied with it. Your thoughts would really feel so clear but stimulated. Possibly you possibly can have guidelines, like poems over breakfast after which novels and memoirs all afternoon. Possibly you’d have all of the books set within the place the place you have been staying. Possibly you possibly can finish the journey watching the film model of the e book. The chances! Limitless.
