Aeroplane reading, Mezza Italiana
Location: Brisbane International Airport (BNE)
Time: 11:22 am
Book: Mezza Italiana by Zoe Boccabella
Price: $27.26, duty free
I had planned on reading only second hand books during this trip, but realized upon arrival at the airport that I had forgotten not only my toothbrush but also my reading material.
A dear friend had given me a copy of Under the Tuscan Sun, and told me to abandon it when finished. Oh well, the Tuscan sun will still be shining next month when I get back.
So, a quick trip to the aeroport kiosk solved my print-less state.
Two tomes were weighed up (literally and literary-ily) , and Mezza Italiana beat Heartless by a nose.
Mezza Italiana is heavier, by far, and maybe not the flying fluff I usually read (XXX to Evanovich), but it is related to my day job and tax deductible. It also looks like one of those mouth wateringly yummy travel-and-find yourself books that are so popular. A bit like Under the Tuscan Sun, eh?
Which one would you choose? I'll let you know if I've made the right decision…
