Question of the week: what should I read on my holiday?

There won’t be a question of the week for the next couple of weeks since I’ll be on holiday. So in my usual opportunistic way, I’m going to ask my traditional, pre-holiday Question of the Week:

Are there any books you’d recommend for holiday reading, preferably available on the Kindle?
