The Vacation Reading Post

So it's decided: when we head north on Friday, I will take with me the following new books (new to me, anyway) to read:

  • Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
  • Persuasion by Jane Austen
  • The Color of Water by James McBride
  • InterWorld by Neil Gaiman and Michael Reaves
  • Ilario: The Lion's Eye by Mary Gentle

Thanks to the flist for helping me decide on which of the Austens to bring!

I've got so much to do before we leave ...

And you have to blog your thoughts when you get back.

I will, but I'm so behind on my blogging! I have a big stack of manga to blog ... .

books on vacation is the best. I'm saving the new Harry Potter book for mine, though it's pretty hard to just look at it when it's just right there on top of my ppile! Hopefully it'll distract me a little and make sure that I don't panic in the airport^^

Awww!

I just have a 10-12 hour drive, and the Mr. will insist on doing all the actual driving (I read the maps).

Don't worry, the biggest thing to fear these days is flight delays.

(I get a little worried myself on takeoffs and landings ... I like to sit where I can watch the flaps on the wings do their thing - somehow, seeing them function makes me feel better.)

Oh, I wish that I had a 12 hour drive to look forward to right now... Matal is not supposed to fly :/ and sitting whare I could see the flaps probably won't so me any good...
It's fun to read maps! All the funny names...

XD    I don't read in the car ... I either daydream (and usually fall asleep after a while) or help the Mr. by reading maps. The books are for down time on vacation. We're all a bunch of geeks, so we spend a lot of time sitting around the beach house livingroom reading. Sometimes four or five of us will be at it at once. Sometimes I mix it up radically by reading out on the deck ... !
