I spent my final day in Bali trying to fly a ship kite on the beach and spying on a few more beach readers. I saw a novel by Tom Clancy and a book called Love and Death in Bali, but I couldn't read the titles of the other 7 books I spotted that day. It took four flights for me to get to the USA for the rest of my summer holiday. I saw many readers along the way, and the titles I remember in my jet lag induced haze are Clive Cussler's The Kingdom, Lauren Hillebrand's Unbroken, Abraham Verghese's Cutting for Stone, Trenton Lee Stewart's The Mysterious Benedict Society and Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. I spotted four other Kindles, one in First Class as I walked by, one in the airport, and two others in Economy with me.
I arrived safely in the US only to discover that I have reached 100 followers. Thank you all so much for your support and your comments. I'll be putting together a celebratory giveaway soon, so stay tuned. In the meantime you can tell me what books people are reading in your town this week.
