On Vacation: Reading List

July 21, 2008

I’ll be camping and traveling to see friends, but I don’t go far without a book in my hand (that’s my daughter above reading at our quick beach trip in June. I guess the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree).  Here’s a list of books I’m hoping to get through while I’m gone.  This reading will only be possible with quiet children in the car, a husband who wants to drive, and lots of down time while we’re gone.  It may be entirely wishful, but it’s the hope that keeps me going.

Divisadero  It’s been on my list for quite a while.  I’ve loved other books by this author, hoping for a similar reaction.

Toast by Nigel Slater  I’ve been wanting to read this ever since looking through his wonderful cookbookish book, Kitchen Diaries last year.

Three Cups of Tea   Recommended to me by a good friend and fellow reader.  Looking forward to reading this and sharing my reactions upon my return!

A Few Short Notes on Tropical Butterflies  Can’t remember why this ended up in my pile (was in NY Times book review that mentioned… yes I think it was this one about another book on my “to read” list!), but my australian e-pal says he’s a good aussie author and I trust her opinion infinitely.

The Biographer’s Tale Picked this up at the local Friends of the Library bookstore for a dollar (can’t beat their prices).  I haven’t read anything else by Byatt since I read Posession, but sounded right up my alley.

Here’s to my summer reading!  I hope it really happens.
