We’ve got our family vacation this weekend at a little, relaxing cabin in the woods! My sister is planning on going on a paddleboat, hiking with her dogs, watching movies on her tablet. I’m going to read. All right, I might do the paddleboat too, if it’s not too long a ride and I’m not feeling too sore. But I am so excited to get away from everything and dig into my TBR.

It’s not like I don’t read a lot at home. It’s just that at home, I’m always interrupted by having to drive someone here or there, buy groceries, make dinner, whatever. Sometime I do it to myself by staying on the Xbox until it’s too late to read and I have to get up in the morning. But up in the mountains, there’s no wi-fi, there’s no schedule, I can just relax. And that means read. 8) I’ve already loaded up my tablet with everything I want to get to, so I thought I would share my list here.

I went to Overdrive and checked out some ebooks. Here’s what I borrowed:

The Girl with the Ghost Eyes by M H Boroson

Dear Mr. Knightly by Katherine Reay

Snowdrift and Other Stories by Georgette Heyer

From A Certain Point of View (Star Wars) edited by Renee Adieh

From Kindle Unlimited I got:

Between Frames by W R Gingell

Apprentice of Magic by K M Shea

Awaken Online: Dominion by Travis Bagwell

And from my ebook library I have:

Absolution by Murder by Peter Tremayne

Mr. Midshipman Hornblower by C S Forester

The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey

The Genius Plague by David Walton

One of Our Thursdays Is Missing by Jasper Fforde

I know you might be thinking, “Come on, I know you’re Speedy Reader, but seriously, how long are you going to be gone? That’s a lot of books!” And you’re absolutely right. There’s no way I will get through all these books. I probably won’t even finish half of them. But it’s all about options. After all, if I start a book and don’t like it, it’s not like I can go to the other room and grab a different book. I want to be prepared. Besides, if I ran out of books, I might have to go outside and do something, and that’s just not happening.

I am going to schedule a post for when I’m gone, but when I get back, I’ll let you know how I did on this list, what I liked and what I didn’t. Until next week, happy reading!
