Books I am Taking to Read on Spring Break

Tonight, while not attending Jack’s 1st grade play or Will’s 6:45 baseball practice, I will be packing up for our trip to Georgetown.  I hope none of you are planning on robbing my house while I am gone.  I read somewhere that is not smart to advertise that you are going on vacation, but if anyone wants to break into our house to steal the dirty, lumpy couch, prehistoric TV, or tired old wardrobe, then be my guest!  Enjoy!
Well, the Bridge Run is in two days, I got 5.5 miles in on Monday with no shin splints, and I celebrated by buying real running shorts with the undies built in!  I showed them to Justin, and he said, “What if someone pulls your pants down?”  I must say, the thought never occurred to me that someone would be lurking in the crowd in Charleston, waiting to dart out and yank on my shorts, but I said, “It would be just as embarrassing as if I had on regular shorts.”  And he said, “At least with regular shorts you have another layer of protection.”  Really?  Sometimes I get a peek into my husband’s thought process when I would prefer to remain in ignorance.  Anyway, I’m keeping the shorts, and all of you crazies just better stay away from me.

Here’s what I hope to read while I’m gone next week:

1. is not really for me, I’ve already read it, but I thought my husband would like it.  He doesn’t read a lot of fiction, and this is a good, thoughtful read.

2. is an author whom I know nothing about, but friends of ours are huge fans, so I thought I would try him out.

3. sub-title is Slow-Down Solutions for Frenzied Families.  Need I say more?  Justin has had enough with our children’s extra-curricular activities dictating our social calendar.  While I sympathize, I’m not sure what you do about it.  Maybe this lady will know. Beekeeper’s Apprentice Recommended by Tim Keller on his blog’s summer reading list . Actually his wife Cathy recommended the fiction while he did the non-fiction, but I trust her too, so I’m going to try it out.

5. I’ve never read Janet Evanovich, so this is pure curiosity.

OK, you may wonder how I plan to read five books in six days along with my regular Bible reading and interacting with my family, so I will let you in on my secret:  I won’t.  Of course not!  But I love to keep all of my options open, and the thought of not having enough books to read gives me the shakes, so I’m happily overpacking. 

Now I’m off to find the suitcases and sunscreen.
