Sooo earlier this summer I wrote up a long post about my vacation, the ups and downs, and allll the reading I got done while spending time with family. Click here to read it.
I was given the opportunity to go on an unexpected trip to the beach with my mom and some friends this past week. For me, it was shorter than the rest of the group. They drove down on Saturday, but I flew down Monday afternoon. An hour flight to the beach is THE WAY TO GO!
I had four wonderful days, enjoying the sun, good food, good people and good reading time.
This time around, my reading started at the airport, with a couple of hours to spare before my flight. I had planned on finishing the “real” book I was reading so all I had to take with me was my nook. I got a little behind and had to wrap that one up the first day of my trip. Since my trip was short, I didn’t get as much reading in as my first vacation, but any reading time is good time.
I was able to finish Shadows of Lancaster County, an Amish mystery book that I bought at a used book store on my first week off with my cousin. I read We are the Goldens, a YA ARC from NetGalley, and started The Best of Me, the new one by Nicholas Sparks, which has a movie coming out soon.
I was a bit optimistic while going on the trip, downloading quite a few more books that I could read, kind of like packing more clothes than I can wear. But I like to be prepared. I still have 5 or 6 that I didn’t get to, but am working a different shift than usual this week, so plan to get some more reading time in!
PS: Here’s a picture of my view for the week! Who wouldn’t love this as the background for some reading time?
