The usual 11th hour book panic

So I'm on the eve of a week-long trip, and yet again I find myself stressing over what books to bring. My initial plan to bring volume 2 of Robert Skidelsky's biography of John Maynard Keynes fell through as I wasn't able to reread volume 1 in time. Plan B was to take the first volume of Thomas L. Whigham's history of the Paraguayan War, and while I still may my perusal of it last night didn't fuel me with anticipation for it as a vacation read. So now I'm rang through my options in my mind, and of course I've convinced myself that books that aren't options would be perfect. FMFWPL

 

Ah, well, at least my backup book is set.
