Which books to take to hospital?

Book Thoughts

I’m going to hospital very soon to have a baby! One of the things they recommend you take (and of course I would anyway) is books, for if you’re waiting around or trying to distract yourself. I’ve picked two books that I think will be good – but would like suggestions for a third!

In the past I’ve been in hospital once, and for some reason I decided that reading my way through early detective fiction was the way to go. I went through lots of Edgar Allen Poe’s stories, and some Sherlock Holmes. Which was all good and enjoyable, but I think I need something a bit more sustained and escapist for my next stint! I have often even on holiday set myself challenges of books that have turned out to be a bit more of a chore than an easy read… here are my choices so far!
