The Great Smoky Mountains


When you go on vacation, you need some good reading and a variety.  Fun books, books you can dip into and out of in a pinch, and books that can hold your attention before bed.

I haven’t had a vacation in a long while that wasn’t back to Massachusetts, so I’m really looking forward to seeing a new place — Tennessee — and enjoying some non-review copies…

Here’s a list of what I’m thinking of taking — any suggestions, should I nix any of these? Should I take only 2?

Too many, right?  Some are ebook, so they take up less room. What kinds of books do you take on vacation?  Do you read them?  Am I overly ambitious?

My other option is just to bring 1-2 books and write my own stuff.  What say you?

    I ALWAYS take more books than I can read on vacation but you have to because you don’t know what kind of mood you’ll be in. I haven’t read any of those books so I can’t comment on them. I hope y’all have a blast!

    Definitely the Mansell and The Elizabeth Papers. I loved them both and think they would make great vacation reads. I also think you should bring a notebook if the muse hits with all that great scenery.

    I’m planning my vacation reads right now. I know I’m bringing the Kindle for the car ride and the downtime at the beach house. I’m bringing a couple of paperbacks for the beach. Don’t want sand or water to ruin my beloved Kindle. LOL

    Let me know what you decide to take 🙂
