As mentioned in the previous post, I’m heading to Cancun on Friday for a week of vacation. Just in time too. We’re expecting a foot of snow tonight and I’ve about had it with Winter. As usual, I’m nerdily deciding on what books to bring with me. I want some Mexican literature, maybe some Carlos Fuentes, whom I’ve never read. Also, has anyone read Underdogs by Mariano Azuela? That sounds good too. I’m also into the idea of reading travel literature while traveling. I purchased copies of Down the Nile by Rosemary Mahoney, Blue Highways by William Least Heat-Moon, and Travels with Herodotus by Ryszard Kapuscinski. I want to bring some regular ol’ fiction too. I still haven’t read Lush Life by Richard Price. Worth bringing? Any suggestions are welcome!
