I'm at the airport now. Just checked in, and waiting to board the plane. Free internet access is available here, even if it's only for 15 minutes.
Just an update on the books I actually brought with me:
- Sodom and Gomorrah, Marcel Proust
Obvious choice, since it is the first book I packed.
- The Man Who Was Thursday, G.K. Chesterton
It's packed nicely together with Proust in a zip-lock bag. Just in case.
- Fathers and Sons, Ivan Turgenev
It's a library book that will be due around the time I return. I decided to pack it along and read it on the way. I'm actually a little paranoid that I might lose it on the trip.
- The Moon and Sixpence W. Somerset Maugham
I just packed it in. Forgot about it until I unzipped my backpack - and lo and behold - it is here.
- A Voice from the Attic, Robertson Davies
I was reading it before I set out for the airport. The truth is, I couldn't bear to put it down as I just packed it along for the trip
Cheers, all. I have about 5 minutes left on the free internet terminal here.
