One thing I did on my travels was use the time to read many of the books I'd been meaning to read for years, but never had the time. While it was easy to find English books in Asia, they were often just your usual best seller crap. So I found myself stocking up when I reached places like Hong Kong and Bangkok which had good book stores. As a result, I found that my pack was always way too heavy. I also discovered that books are a lot more expensive in the rest of the world than they are in North America. I'm doing this from memory, so if I've spelled any authors' names or book titles wrong, please email me and let me know. Anyways, here are the books I read on my travels, listed alphabetically by author:
