Default What to read at Glasto???

As I'm going to be spending an awful lot of time in my tent this coming weekend seeing as though its gonna rain at Glsto (well its either that or go and watch the Love Grocer) has anyone got any suggestions for decent festival reading material?

Nothing heavy (in terms of weight) cos my rucksack is full enough already.

A collection of short stories or several small books. You'll probably find that you're not reading that much and when you are it's in short bursts.

However I'd say "Tortilla Flats" by Steinbeck because the characters in that book mainly do what you'll be doing a lot of: sitting around drinking.

Either that or get a popular physics or cosmology book and blow some hippies' minds round their campfire.
I have nothing of use to add.
