Wondering what to pack for your next vacation? When you are on vacation, often you want to relax, escape and unwind. There is nothing quite like a good book to accomplish these things. Here are five books that are quick, entertaining reads--great choices to throw in your bag for your next vacation.
This is the first book I will suggest you to reaf at your vacation or your free time. Personally I have also read this book. This is great book ever. This sweet, simple romance begins on a cross-country flight. James Collins' debut novel is well written, delightful reading for your next trip.
Peter, though, is the catalyst for this novel, and his struggle to do the right thing and behave the correct way often gets in the way of his own happiness. When James Collins is moving the novel through Peter's actions and frustrations, the romantic comedy skips along its merry path. For the most part, Beginner's Greek is an enjoyable romp of the heart and mind. It's not completely believable, but that's not necessary. It's about love, true love, and how it can overcome all obstacles. That's what we all want to believe in. Right? Well, at least it's true in Beginner's Greek and we should enjoy it while we can.
The novel depicts the plight of the French peasantry demoralized by the French aristocracy in the years leading up to the revolution, the corresponding brutality demonstrated by the revolutionaries toward the former aristocrats in the early years of the revolution, and many unflattering social parallels with life in London during the same time period. It follows the lives of several protagonists through these events. The most notable are Charles Darnay and Sydney Carton.

Beneath a Marble Sky by John Shors is a fictional story surrounding the building of the Taj Mahal. While historians agree that the Taj Mahal was built by an emperor in the seventeenth century who was grieving the loss of his wife, the true details surrounding this story have been lost. Shors imagines them in Beneath a Marble Sky, bringing to life a story of love, war, beauty and tragedy.
The Little Prince (French: Le Petit Prince), published in 1943, is French aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's most famous novella. Saint-Exupéry wrote it while living in the United States.

Thanks for the recommendations, I may have to add a few of these to my list!
I tried reading A Tale of Two Cities way back in Jr. High. My friend loved it and read it twice. I should give it another chance as I have come to appreciate classics compared to childhood reading days.
