Left Behind

When travelers finish a book, they often leave it behind in the room. A UK hotel chain keeps a count of what titles are found after the guests depart, and The Guardian has the latest list. None of them are by science fiction or fantasy writers – or acting chimps:

Travelodge’s annual list of the books most often abandoned in its hotels is topped by John Prescott’s Prezza: My Story, in which among other things we are told about how Prescott was excluded from invitations to Chequers. Prescott beat comedian Russell Brand to take the dubious accolade of most discarded author, while Cherie Blair – who presumably had something to do with Prescott‘s lack of social invites – comes in third with her own autobiography Speaking For Myself.
