If you were going on a trip....

...and you wanted to take two books to read what would they be?

Would you opt for a classic tried-and-true re-read? The safe bet?

Or would you get a previously unread tome from an author that has proven track record with you?

Or maybe really take a walk on the wild side and take along a couple of previous unread books by previously unread author(s)? Maybe an author you've "heard good things about"?

Or a real shot in the dark: completely unknown author(s) and books that just happen to catch your fancy?

Heh,

I'd play the middle road....I don't think I'd want to re-read a book (not when I have so many unread on the back-burner already. I'm also a bit hesitant to try new authors, though I make the exception now and then (ie for George R Martin as one example).

I'd take one book by a proven author I know I want to read, and I'd take another I'd heard good things about, but never read. You have to live a dangerous life sometimes!
