• I would say the obvious choice was the excellent Inflight Science by Brian Clegg, but as I wrote it, that would be cheating. And I’d read it already. So I read S. J. Parris’s Heresy – great combination of Elizabethan setting (and science) and murder mystery.

    Nothing whatsoever. I did bring my Kindle, also as carry on for the flights, but I don’t think it got turned on at any point.

    “Nothing whatsoever. I did bring my Kindle, also as carry on for the flights, but I don’t think it got turned on at any point.”
    Know the feeling although I was excited to discover both Bettany Hughes’s books were now on Kindle. Oddly, if you click that link on Amazon that says “If you’d like this on Kindle and want to tell the publisher…” like I did, when the book gets released on Kindle, Amazon doesn’t tell you. So I’m halfway through the Hemlock Cup now.

  • I didn’t get through that many books this summer sadly.
    I read ‘Night Watch’ – which was good enough that I wanted to read ‘Day Watch’, but not so great that I’d want to re-read the book a second time.
    I also read most of ‘The Fry Chronicles’ (still working on finishing that), the first ‘Necroscope’ book again and returned to reading ‘Black Sun Rising’ which remains one of my favourite books of all time.
    I plan to read ‘Day Watch’ and ‘When True Night Falls’ (the sequel to ‘Black Sun Rising’) next.
