It's Monday and I am not reading. I am packing. The hubs and I are getting ready to travel to Virginia for a couple of weeks, so today I am packing. And running errands. And obsessing about packing and running errands. Not doing much reading.
However, I have been doing some reading lately. June and July were much better reading months for me than May (when I read absolutely zero books). Recently I've finished:
- Artists in Crime by Ngaio Marsh
- Dead Man's Folly by Agatha Christie
- The Key by Patricia Wentworth
- Night Watch by Linda Fairstein
- Right Ho, Jeeves by P.G. Wodehouse
- Skios by Michael Frayn
- The Warden by Anthony Trollope
So, back to getting ready for travel. And one of the things I need to do is decide what reading matter to take along. I've got the iPad loaded up with more Agatha Christie (just started Elephants Can Remember) and more Ngaio Marsh (next up: The Nursing Home Murder) and more P.G. Wodehouse, but the pad is a little heavy to read for several hours on the plane. So I need to decide which (real) book to take along.
I'm still just about three-quarters of the way through (and loving) Kate Morton's The House at Riverton, so if I don't finish that one up tonight, it'll be going along with me.
But if I do finish it, then I'll be looking for something else. Maybe I should just pick up something at the airport -- surprise myself with something completely new and different. Since I'm not a good traveler and really don't like to fly, whatever I take has to be something I can really get lost in, something that will divert my attention from helping the pilot fly the damn plane.
