I found the perfect book . . .

. . . to take with me to Morocco:



A book, about a trip to North Africa, that inspired a Police song. How is that not perfect?* Plus, it's on my list.



*Camus' The Stranger -- which inspired The Cure -- would, theoretically, also be a good pick, but (a) I already read it and (b) it's not on the list.

It's the wrong country and not on your list (came out recently), but a great book that I'm reading is "The Places in Between" about a Scotsman walking across all of Afghanistan after 9/11. He's a great narrator and you learn about not just the cities but the villages of rural afghanistan, which make up 90% of the country.

Ryane: Thanks. I'm really looking forward to going somewhere completely new.

Debby: I need to finnish that damned list already! Otherwise, it's going to plague me until the end of time.
