Things I Take on Vacation...

Tomorrow I'm heading off on a family vacation to the Carribbean!

Here's what I'm taking (other than clothes and bathing suits and things like that):

From top to bottom:

  • My Kindle (which has Persuasion on it).
  • Monstrous Regiment by Terry Pratchett, just in case I finish Persuasion.
  • My journal.
  • Papers of speeches for a scholarship competition that I have to memorize. (I'm never completely free.)
  • Notebooks and pens for writing stories.

I probably won't get to all of that, but I tend to take an excess of notebooks and books on trips. Hey - I never get bored!

Meanwhile, I have scheduled this blog to get a few updates while I'm away. Here's what you can look forward to in the coming week.
  • Week 1 post of the The Bible Project! (Click here for a full description.)
  • A post on Mr. Knightly from Emma.
  • A throwback post on a book I read before I began blogging: War and Peace.
Wishing you all a Healthy and Happy New Year!


Post Script: Today is J. R. R. Tolkien's birthday! (January 3, 1892 - September 2, 1973)
Happy birthday to one of the greatest fantasy writers of all time!


Book discussions make the world a better place! Write me a comment - I respond to each and every one, I promise. So check back!

(YES! I LOVE TAGS and I do them! So tag away! But no bloggerly awards, though, like the Liebster or the Sisterhood of World Bloggers. Thank you!)
