Bob is part owner of a small business and it's difficult for him to get away. His business is having its best year ever and they are really busy. He almost postponed our vacation but I gave him crap!! They can survive for one week without him.
Anyway, we bought a recreational vehicle (a fifth wheel) two years ago and have hardly used it. So we are busily planning a road trip with the RV from our home near Seattle to northern California. We will head south through Portland and cut over to the beautiful Oregon coast, then head south till we hit the Redwood National Forest and stay there a few days. On the way home, we will stop at Crater Lake, and Bend Oregon, and the rest we will play by ear. I'm cringing at the price of gas but I figure it will be cheaper than flying to Hawaii which was my first choice.
I am one of those lucky people that can read in the car. And since Bob doesn't trust me (and I don't trust myself) to drive with the RV in tow, I have hours of reading ahead of me between gazing at the beautiful scenery out the window. ::sigh:: Heaven!
So one of the major decisions I need to make is what books to bring along, naturally! Looking through the TBR mountain, I realized I have some historical romance classics in there that I may or may not bring along.
- Dance by Judith Cuevas
- Flowers From the Storm by Laura Kinsale
- The Shadow & the Star by Laura Kinsale
- Shattered Rainbows by Mary Jo Putney
- A Rose at Midnight by Anne Stuart
- Beast by Judith Ivory
And many others. Maybe I'm weird but I'm almost afraid to read any of these because I have heard so much praise that I'm afraid they will disappoint me. I know, makes no sense.
I decided to bring about 20 books along mostly all from my TBR and will try to pick some that have been in there the longest. I know I can't read that many in a week, but I have the space in the RV and I want to have some extras in case I get a real stinker and can't finish it. I'll be lucky to read 10 (about 1 book per day). Once I decide which books to bring, then I throw some food and clothes in and off we go! I have my priorities straight, don't you think? :)
