As I write this to post while I'm away, I have a bag packed with more books than three people could read in a long weekend. And I can't imagine leaving the house without every one of them.
There's Lost Mountain, by Erik Reece, that I'm nearly done with. I'm not sure how to fit this book in my list of top five green reads except to squeeze it in there and hope no one counts too closely.
There's An Unreasonable Woman, by Diane Wilson because I want to write a review of it. I may even read it again.
There's a book by a Buddhist teacher that I can't remember the name of. He works with peacekeepers and peace is always good food on vacation, or not.
And then there's Mexican Days by Tony Cohan. I loved his first book, On Mexican Time, about making a home in San Miguel de Allende. He had a way of capturing the pace of time in the rhythm of his writing that I hadn't come across before or since. I'm not sure he can live up to that praise in a second book but I'm excited to read it all the same and more than willing to be surprised.
I am leaving an anthology of MFK Fisher's work at home although I've been thoroughly enjoying it in bits and bites the last month. The End of Food, by Paul Roberts is staying home on the table too. It just seems too heavy for the summer as were the first two chapters of Stuffed and Starved, by Raj Patel. I'll pick the two of them up another time.
So, what are you packing in your bag to take on vacation or the bus ride across town?
If it's green I'll list it in the sidebar but I'd love to know anything you are reading just because it's fun.
And by all means if you have a new review up, leave a comment and I'll add it to the sidebar.
Not yet a bookwormer but you have a green read you want to tell people about? Leave a comment and I'll add you to the list and link your review.
