I'll be in my car, so for most of time I can carry a good selection. When I'm walking the Great Glen Way though, I want to keep my weight down as much as possible and get rid of things as I go, so I'll probably just take a selection of magazines and as I read them I can rip out the pages and throw them away.
But what books to take ...
Usually I like to read books either by authors from the place where I am or else set in or about the place. Last year I read a lot of books with a Shetland theme, so I don't have that many left to read. So I have to decide whether to read books -
- about Scotland in general
- about wildlife
- that I've started in the past and never got round to finishing
- from the BBC Big Read list
- to do with my studies
- that I think I should have read but haven't yet.
Maybe I'll just take a few from each category and then I can decide what I feel like when I'm there.
