The Plane Goes Down.
Nada. Zilch. Zip. Zero. Nothing.
Umm… I don’t go on vacation to read a book.
So generally, just the plaques and signs on the exhibits.
I love biographies and I love medical text books, especially on neuroscience.
The note from my lawyer that my extradition was denied.

The itinerary to a tropical island, the fancy menu (to impress my wife), the bill I can’t afford, the glow of my wife’s smile.
Of Mice and Men, Julius Caesar, The Fountainhead, that sort of stuff.
Give me something to do on these long oceanic flights.
Redemption instructions on winning mega-millions lottery ticket.
Menus from fancy restaurants. Because that’s what my vacations are for.
If by vacation you mean that 15 minutes between getting into bed and falling asleep then mystery, horror, or adventure.
This is like asking my favorite album to listen to at a rock concert.
The only thing I read on vacation is the menu. Vacation is a time to do stuff, not spend it reading. I can do that at home.
I’m with the menu reading group.
Crime novels, which is also what I read when I’m not on vacation.
Isn’t the vacation to get away from reading and other terrible things?
I see a lot of “don’t read while on vacation” sentiment. I agree that I am not going to be reading while I am at my destination, but the responses make me think of a plane full of David Puddys.
A light, breezy, yet dense graphic novel about true crime—featuring pop science—that I’ve been meaning to devote some time to.
I like it when I’m able to find a novel that’s set in the location of my vacation! I also like reading stuff about the area. This is for foreign locations, usually. If I’m in the US maybe just a mystery novel or magazines.
