Up and Away

August 31, 2008 | 2 books mentioned

Mrs. Millions and I will be departing tomorrow for a trip to Greece and Turkey. Of all the many things to be excited about, we are most excited about the food. And in Turkey, we will have a local tour guide in the form of Emre, our longtime Turkish correspondent here at The Millions.

We’re trying to travel very light, just a backpack each, and that doesn’t leave much room for reading material. We allowed ourselves to each select a paperback (and a magazine or two) and presumably we will swap the paperbacks if we finish them before our trip is over. Mrs. Millions is bringing The Complete Short Stories of Ernest Hemingway, and I have decided to read Maqroll for a second time. I’m also bringing the latest New Yorker, which is, regrettably, the Style Issue.

While I’m gone, the rest of the gang at The Millions will be taking over. See you soon!
