Remainders 2

IMG_3457More ‘remainders’.

Hotels often have a random collection of books available to guests.

There will always be some stalwarts, some predictable choices. Usually books relating to the area you’re in. Probably a copy of the Da Vinci Code, The Time Travellers Wife or one of the Harry Potter series.

Occasionally you find something incongruous. Something that seems desperately out of place.


IMG_3437Whilst in Greece I found Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. Not your average holiday paperback – dense and ideological.

Next time you go to a hotel, look for the shelf. Study the titles. Pick them up, flick through them – look for signs of use, inscriptions, things which could point to why that random collection of books isnt so random.
