Tomes and Travels

Holiday haul!

Writer Jhumpa Lahiri had famously quoted how books let you travel without moving your feet. (Courtesy: The Namesake). Books have another role to play in our travels as well – accompanying us as reliable travel buddies when we actually move around the world. I always carry a book or two on holiday – a theme picked based on the place I’m going to visit or explore. In addition, I have a quirk of picking up books (and bookmarks and postcards) from places I travel to – a kind of memento as remembrance of the trip whenever I flip through their pages in future. Locating local bookstores and sourcing books is a must-have on my itinerary wherever I go. This picture depicts my latest haul from my most recent trip – a smorgasbord of titles, authors and genres from three different bookstores.

Has anyone read these books or other titles by the same authors? Feedback is always appreciated. And of course, I’ll share reviews as I go along.

    1. I sniffed out some nondescript bookstores tucked away in corners. Was glad to find some rare titles. The omnibus is a compilation of three books I had borrowed and read years ago – picked this one for my personal collection . Excited to start reading now!
