Seriously...where is this beach?! Maybe it's not too late to change my vacation destination....
Don't you just want to climb inside this magazine and stroll through this garden? Maybe have a cup of tea in the backyard? Maybe just move in?? It's been so hard not peeking at the magazines or browsing through just one little article.....!
And now we come to the third type of reading material, the books. I don't have a Kindle or a Nook or an Ipod or smartphone that allows me to download books. No, I'm an old fashioned girl with old fashioned books, books that have been carefully vetted for just this trip.
|Notice the book on the table?!|
So here is what I have so far, but there's six days before V-day, so the list is subject to change. And I am, of course, open to suggestions!
For a mildly scary-but-won't-keep-me-awake-at-night book:
Mary Higgins Clark, On the Street Where You Live (I'm not sure how I missed this one, because I've read MHC for years, and maybe I already have but the plot description on the back cover doesn't sound familiar, and even if I have read it...I'm depressingly at that age where I don't always remember the end of a book I've read!)
For a really enjoyable detective story,
Will Thomas, The Limehouse Text
We're visiting Monticello for the first time, so this book seemed appropriate
Alan Pell Crawford, Twilight at Monticello
And I never leave home without a book or two of poetry!
Since Monticello is on our itinerary, here's a poem by Stephen Vincent Benet about its famous architect and owner. Have a wonderful day!
