May: It's Vacation Time Again

In just a couple of days we're on our way to Alaska, where we're helicoptering to a glacier and then hiking it, going snorkeling in survival suits, and who knows what else we'll find to do there.  Of course the suitcases (and the Kindle) are loaded with books that in my leisure time I plan to read while just kicking back and doing nothing.  

Part of the list definitely includes the following:

The Greatcoat, by Helen Dunmore
Bring Up the Bodies, by Hilary Mantel (currently reading)
Sacre Bleu, by Christopher Moore
Gillespie and I, by Jane Harris

and whatever happens to be on my Kindle, which right now escapes me -- but I have two weeks worth of vacation reading with me so I'm prepared.  Then when I get back home, it should definitely be pool weather so I'll extend my vacation until the end of the month while I go from one weather extreme to another.

I can't wait, both for Alaska and the books I've brought!

  1. What an amazing vacation!! Have fun -- I'm so envious! Looking forward to your thoughts on Gillespie & I, should you get to it -- I adored it and am so sad it didn't make the Orange shortlist!


Say what you will, but at least try to be nice about it.
