Heading to St. Louis tomorrow for a concert and need to travel light since I'm going straight to another concert when I get back . . .
Gonna try the touch as my main travel buddy and not carry any physical books . . . what should I get?
Thx.

Can you narrow it down to a genre? Fiction or non-fiction at the very least?

I guess I'm kind of open. I way prefer fiction and within fiction I tend to prefer sci fi-fantasy, but it's been a long time since I could get in to such a book so I may be losing that taste. Would be open to non-fiction if engaging enough.

I'm taking a chance here, because I just bought this and have not read it yet, but this book sounded very intriguing to me:

The reviews are all over the map but I decided it was worth taking a chance because the topic is totally and completely new and unknown to me.

"1Q84" by Haruki Murakami. His "Always on the side of the egg" acceptance speech when he won the Jerusalem Prize is a classic.

Thx. The 20s are an interesting time to me.
I think I'll start looking for the book when on the road tomorrow . . . I actually kind of hate the tiny interface.
Maybe I'll try to get through the rest of Game of Thrones season one as well...

All I can recommend is keep cool ! STL is in the middle of some higher than usual summer heat, and the humidity is always a killer.

I grew up there.

If you can, a visit to Laclede's Landing is always cool. I still remember seeing Muddy Waters at... Muddy Waters. Sadly, looks more like nightclubs moved in.

And if you can, a visit to Ted Drewe's is de rigeur.

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline.

Science fiction based on the culture of the 80s. Lots of references to the computer games and movies of that era. Setting is circa 2040 and is a story of a computer geek playing an online game against the world. Dungeons And Dragons, Zork and Pong abound.

I spend a fair amount of time there, thanks. Pretty much booked up for all of the brief visit.
