Time for a vacation. We'll be hitting the road Thursday evening. Booked a 1-week cruise out of Texas. Going with our good friends, Deb and Shevek. After the cruise, we have another week to road trip - mostly around Louisiana where we have family to visit. It's been 2 years since we've taken a long vacation. I'm looking forward to some time off the grid.
With a lot of down time in the car and days at sea comes the need for some serious reading material. This list is all over the place and could've gone on and on forever. So here's top 12, in alphabetical order:
Bird by Bird - Anne Lamott: I've only ever heard amazing things about her writing and this book (about writing) seemed like a good place to start. But I'm open to other suggestions. Anybody have an Anne Lamott favorite? I'd like to know.
Divergent - Veronica Roth: there's a movie comin' out, y'all.
Fashion 2.0: Blogging Your Way to The Front Row - Yuli Ziv: The blogging world intrigues me. Especially the professional blogging world. Honestly not sure if I could hack it. Always willing to learn more.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets - J.K. Rowling: I know, I'm WAY behind. I read the first book in preparation for Harry Potter World last summer. Loved it. Next please!
In the Fields - Willow Aster: I love-love-llllllloved this book (remember, this author interview?). So I'm re-reading it. Might even finish it before the trip, but it will come with me anyway just in case I bump into Willow in New Orleans. She'll be there around the same time for NOLA 2014 Author Event. I desperately want her to sign my copy of the book.
Mindset - Carol S. Dweck: Because it's about growth and I'm a girl who loves a rut. Yep.
