Even with a week off in my sights - spring break starts today - I'm stressing out. Which books will I read on our trip? I'll have some time sitting by the pool in sunny Arizona, and I plan to get a mountain of reading done, but choosing the right books is tricky. It's easier now than it used to be because I can load several on my e-reader and not have a suitcase that weighs 200 pounds. My husband is happy about that! But still, I like to have a game plan.
Room by Emma Donoghue is on hold for me at the library, and since I need it for my grown up book club, I'm hoping it becomes available before I leave. Actually, it's an e-book on hold, so I could download it while I'm gone if needed. That's a handy thing about electronic holds!
I also have the new Sue Monk Kidd novel - The Invention of Wings - to read, and that's pretty high on my list. I've heard it's amazing.
Fat Boy vs. The Cheerleaders by Geoff Herbach s coming out in May, and I have an advance copy of it. He's one of my favorite authors, so I'l probably give that one a try.
I have Sarah Mlynowski's newest book, Don't Even Think About It which I think would be a good vacation book, and The Best Seat in Baseball, But You Have to Stand which is about baseball umpiring, and what could be more appropriate than that to read at spring training? Go Cubs, Go!
What's on your spring break reading list? Leave me a note in the comments.
