As long as they dont' scare the horses.

Which I suspect my blog photo might well do. It sure as hell scares me when I see it. I really should change it . I have something more acceptable (definition of acceptable: I dont' cringe when I see it).

February has been a total write off as far as reading is concerned. I don't think I've finished a single book. I'll blame it on a combination of a succession of books that I couldn't become interested in and the heatwave. Also the fact I'm in an ever increasing state of frenzied excitement over my upcoming trip to Left Coast Crime Hawaii. Now just 18 days away. It will be my first trip out of the country in over 30 years and probably the only one I'm likely to get.

So many things to get together, so many tough decisions to make. I'll be getting books at the convention so the toughest decision is how many books to take on the long flight over and which ones? I should probably rule out hardcovers. Dithering about that one.

So veteran travellers - What is your rule of thumb in making your reading choices for long-haul flights?
