I'm going to be away from home on vacation and visiting family for over 2 weeks this month, and then at the end of the month, I'll be making two additional trips -- taking Amanda to camp and picking her up. I often read more than usual on a trip, but since I'll be driving for a good bit of the trip, and keeping a pretty schedule, I'm not sure how much reading I'll do. But a girl can only hope . . . .
I've already started these books:
The Pursuit of Happyness by Chris Gardner
Start Where You Are by Chris Gardner
The Crowning Glory of Calla Lily Ponder by Rebecca Wells
Eat My Globe: One Year to Go Everywhere and Eat Everything by Simon Majumdar (almost finished with this and loving it)
Violet Raines Almost Got Struck by Lightning by Danette Hayworth
I hope to be able to get to these:
You'd Be So Pretty If . . .
The Triumph of Deborah by Eva Etzioni-Halevy
Into the Beautiful North: A Novel
Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier -- for Classics Bookclub in August
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (Book 6) -- Because Amanda's dying to read it, and I want to read it first. We'll take this on our trip, and get a double bang for the book-packing buck.
A Thousand Splendid Suns -- It's loaded up on my Kindle, and I'm taking it with me on my trip, but honestly I have a feeling that it might keep falling to the bottom of the list.
House of Sand and Fog -- maybe
Free Food for Millionaires -- maybe
The Genie Scheme -- a tween novel -- maybe
The Truth about Truman School -- maybe
Pretties (Uglies Trilogy, Book 2) -- maybe
