When I travel, I always find time to get a bit of reading time in. Car trips, flights, and relaxing by a pool or on a beach afford ample time to read fantastic books. And on my trip to Kaaboo, I didn’t have much time to read, as I was busy enjoying lots of art and concerts, but I did read two books. Here is my Kaaboo Del Mar Reading List.
Paris to the Moon by Adam Gopnik
A beautiful and honest picture of what life is like when a person moves their family to Paris and doesn’t just visit, but actually lives there. The book reflects the realities of being an expatriate, sometimes positive and sometimes negative. But it also does justice to the spirit that drives a person to want to live abroad, and particularly in Paris, for a time. I really enjoyed the experience of reading it.
The Spy With No Name: The Cold War and a Case of Stolen Identity by Jeff Maysh
A short book, this was an interesting true story that I’d never heard of before. I tend to like spy stores in general, but this one being a true story made it that much more fascinating. I enjoyed it.
