One positive aspect of pre-trip preparations (I really don’t like packing) is choosing what books to take. Here’s what I’m currently thinking:
- Unless I finish it between now and then (unlikely), I’ll be taking my current read, Godric by Frederick Buechner.
- Dangerous Neighbors by Beth Kephart
- Father Brown by G.K. Chesterton — Paul and I started reading these together ages ago, but we’re hoping to get back into the habit.
It’s not a long trip but not just a weekend, either. Sometimes I read less on the road than I would at home, but sometimes I get some quality book time in. I do have a knitting project on the needles for the trip, as well. It’s a new design I’m working on from handspun, as part of the 4! Ounce! Challenge!
Even if I don’t end up reading a ton, though, I need to take more books than this to feel comfortable (Those two for me are both quite short, and I’m already partway through one of them!), but I haven’t figured out yet what else to take. Guess I’d better go stare at the bookcase for a bit …
