off to a family wedding

I’m heading out of state for the next week to attend a wedding. I’ll bring my laptop, but there’s no telling whether I’ll get a chance to blog — just in case I don’t, I hope everyone has as wonderful New Year’s Day. Read lots of books!

As for the books that I’ve got packed in my own suitcase, here’s what I plan to read on the long (10 hours!) plane ride ahead:

THE TROJAN WAR by Barry Strauss
THE SECRET HISTORY by Donna Tartt (okay, so I’m late to this one!)

plus a number of galleys that have piled up on my bedside stand. That’s the one upside of long plane flights — the chance to read.

    Hey, even on a 3 hour cruise the Howell’s brought all that clothing, so on this 10 hour flight, enjoy your reading. Have a safe flight, and a happy and healthy New Year to you and yours, as well.

    The Secret History is quite good, as I recall. Not much mystery, but interesting all the same.

    Enjoy your reading, and have a safe flight and lovely New Years!

    I’m sitting at LAX, waiting for the next leg of my flight. With an unexpected six-hour layover, the day’s journey is turning into an 18-hour travel day. And yep, I really still will be in the U.S. — in Honolulu, where my nephew is getting married. This is one case where a family obligation will be a real pleasure — once I get there.

    Hmmm…. My grandma lived in Molokai for a few years after grandpa passed. I never got around to visiting her out there, though, ’cause it seems like I was always busy with college or wasn’t up to traveling. Still, I’ve been to Hawaii in my lifetime. 🙂

    Have fun!!!!!!!!!! Happy New Year to you and yours, and I hope it’s the best yet for y’all!

    I was watching Oprah and she has some interesting books. I have started Bone Garden but frankly I need to get moving on it.
    I blog more then I read. I suppose its because that is just how I work.
    Ten hours on a plane, Surely I would just brainstorm about so many things. People tell me I am an endless source of information that really no one seems to ever know about.

    Greetings from the Philippines. I read fiction only occasionally but not as a hobby.Last week, I went to a local bookstore and found Harvest. Having been a chaplain resident at MD Anderson, Houston, your novel is super exciting to me. I’ll try to read all your works from now on.
