Before boarding a plane, I’m frantically trying to choose the right book to bring to read. Do I want a page-turning, can’t put it down murder mystery? A beach read to just lay in the sun and get lost in? Or a historical fiction novel that enlightens as well as entertains. I keep a running list of books that I want to order or a stack on my nightstand to choose from; however, I have a feeling that on this trip I won’t have much downtime to relax and read. So, instead of sharing my wish list of paperbacks, I’m sharing the catalogue of design books in my Amazon Prime queue. There are plenty more so this is just a taste. Any recommendations from my fellow bibliophiles?
