Best Book

The Big Rock Candy Mountain. By Wallace Stegner or The Masters by C.P. Snow although An American Tragedy by Theodore Dreiser is a favorite also.

Take book(s) of the genre you enjoy. On my Big Trip I read about a half-dozen different books/authors. Found plenty of stops to 'trade' books from laundry rooms to the Free Little Library book stand at the Blue Mounds State Park.

I take books I don't want to keep forever, and trade them at campground laundries, used book stores, etc. Since I read 3-4 per week, that, and my Kindle, are the only way I don't end up overloading the truck!

My Kindle is always full with “free” books from I like to be able to hit the delete button when complete. Also, I always keep my electronic library full with the maximum best sellers that I can put on the waiting list. Once caught on an international freight without enough reading material- never again!

Nowadays I don't take hard copy books with me; I just read ebooks on my tablet, fiction and nonfiction. And I have programming ebooks on the tablet which I use when programming on the laptop.
