    Mind candy. Something you can read without much thought. Great when you're tired.

    Big words mean more ink which means more weight. Hey, it adds up... Stick with Dr. Seuss.

    This thread isn’t what I thought it would be about - literally lightweight paperbacks. But since I’m here I’ll suggest 1950s and 1960s pulp fiction mysteries. They weight just a few ounces and provide great entertainment. Available for a couple bucks at most used bookstores.

    To be serious, I've gotten in the habit of taking a paperback and tearing out/burning the pages that I've read. The last was a short novel by Yan Lianke, "The Years, Months, Days."

    I find it easier than carrying a Kindle, esp. since mine doesn't have a back light. But if I ever get to stay out longer than a week, I may use it as an excuse to upgrade to a Paperwhite and bring it along.
