Vacation Reading

Family trips to visit my dad are great opportunities for reading. A long plane ride, lots of down time on the beach and the screen porch, a house full of books--I love it. Even my teenage reluctant reader could be found with his nose in a Dave Barry book.

I read 2.5 books in a week! Here's the list: Started Early, Took my Dog, by Kate Atkinson, State of Wonder by Ann Patchett, and half of The Orphan Sister by Gwendolen Gross. I also still have to blog about Little Bee by Chris Cleave and Kraken, by China Mieville. I'm sorry I've gotten so far behind but I promise to catch up soon.

Enjoy...it's hard to be a "reading vacation." They are very rare.

I think I need a plane ride to get some reading done! Have not been commenting but still reading your reviews. Maybe we can meet again after this weekend when I finish a couple of big commitments?

I've read more in the last two weeks than in the last year, so I kinda understand what you're talking about... happy reading!
