On Holiday

Last week I borrowed my title from Jimmy Buffett, this week it’s Green Day. Except, it’s really because today is Labor Day and I’m on holiday. We took a road trip although by the time this posts, I’ll probably be back home. I’m enjoying the extra day off reading and writing. The car ride is perfect for me to plug in the power inverter and power up the laptop for some writing time. It’s also a good excuse for me to read. I just finished what may be my favorite book of 2013, which is the subject of my next post.

The book has given me a bit of a literary hangover. I can’t quite decide what to read next. I’m going for Diana Sharple’s Running Lean because I checked it out of the library, so I need to read it within 2 weeks. However, there are several books vying for my precious reading time. A suspense novel that sounds creepy good. Two different fantasies, two World War II novels one by a favorite author and another by an author I’ve been dying to read. Did I mention the quirky funny sci fi book and a YA trilogy that has been on the TBR list for at least a year? What wasn’t listed? Any of those Top 100 books. On that front, my daughter and I are making great progress on Winnie-the-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner.
