So, I didn’t get anywhere near the amount of stuff done this weekend as I’d intended. You know, this whole work thing is seriously going to put a crimp in my social calendar. Especially since I’m expecting it to take a couple weeks before I learn whether I can covertly sneak onto the internet from time to time. (Yeah, like you don't)
Anyway, I need some help from my loverly blog buddies. Pretty Please.
With my new job comes a trip to
, at the end of the month. I’ve never been to San Francisco , and I’m excited . . . though I’m half convinced the Big One is going to happen while I’m there. So if California slides into the ocean any time between May 28th - June 3rd, you can feel free to blame me. California
If you haven’t noticed, I have a bit of a fatalistic sense of myself. I’m fairly certain I booked a room on the Titanic in a previous life, but I digress.
One of the good things about six hours on a plane, with a layover – okay the ONLY good thing about six hours on a plane, with a layover – is the excess time I’m going to have to dedicate to reading!!
Since I don’t feel like carting along a stack of books in my carry-on bag, only one of my trade paperback “To Read” pile is going on the trip. But Nookie is going with me, and he can hold umpteen (it’s a real number) books, and I need help filling him with good reading ideas.
So what I’m asking from y’all is to point me in the direction of your favorite book or two. Not saying I’m going to read them all, but I like the idea of being turned on to books I might not otherwise have come across on my own. So here’s what I’m after, if you’re so obliged:
What’s the general story line?
My taste in books is pretty eclectic, so no worries there. The only types of stories I’m not crazy about are hardcore Science Fiction, Literary with no real plot & Westerns. Otherwise, throw it at me!
