I'm an Editor in book publishing. All opinions are my own.
I love planning books to take on vacation, though whether or not I get around to reading them is a different story. I'm about to embark on my summer vacation for July 4th, and have chosen these books to accompany me on my travels:
A FIERCE RADIANCE -- this is a pick for my July book club meeting (it's my pick, so I really should make sure to read it). A historical work about a female reporter covering the invention of penicillin, I'm hoping this will have a great period feel.
NIGHTSHIFTED -- A nurse works on a hospital ward where the patients aren't quite . . . natural. I didn't think I'd get this in from the library until after vacation, but it's waiting for me now, so I'll pick this up as my "guilty fun" read.
HAPPIER AT HOME -- I loved Rubin's first book THE HAPPINESS PROJECT. Though I haven't undertaken a happiness project of my own, I find her insights and examples useful, and think I've drawn some benefit from reading her books even if I haven't put what I've learned into organized practice. Also, I sometimes find it easier to read non-fiction on airplanes than fiction.
What books are you taking on vacay?
