I am back from sunny (and humid) Florida, where my husband and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary at Disney World. The kids very happily spent a week with two sets of grandparents, where they ate a lot of junk food, had too much screen time, and took trips to the museum and Chuck E. Cheese. Meanwhile, the husband and I enjoyed all of the rides, complete conversations, and eating an entire meal without taking someone to the bathroom!
The good news about going from Philly to Florida on a train is that you get lots of reading time. Over the past two weeks, I read The Lost Letter by Jillian Cantor, The Lauras by Sara Taylor, Bittersweet: Thoughts on Change, Grace, and Learning the Hard Way by Shauna Niequist, The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith, The History of Bees by Maja Lunde, My Glory Was I Had Such Friends by Amy Silverstein, and Rules of Civility by Amor Towles.
What are you reading this week?
Sounds like a wonderful trip. Your train ride did let you read an eclectic assortment of books too. Come see my week here. Happy reading!ReplyDelete
It's always good to bring a giant stack of books on any trip, isn't it?Delete
Glad you enjoyed your anniversary trip!!ReplyDelete
I didn't know you lived in Philly! (or have I said that to you before? lol) I am just south of there in northern DE.
Wow, you read so many great books! Now THAT sounds like a vacation!
Enjoy your books this week -

We live in New Jersey, but we aren't that far from Philadelphia.Delete
Hope you enjoyed your books too!
The History of Bees sounds good. Come see what I'm reading.ReplyDelete
I really enjoyed it. Now to write that pesky review!Delete
I'm interested in The Lost Letter. I read Margot by Cantor and really loved it.ReplyDelete
That's the one I haven't read yet! I really liked her book The Hours Count though.Delete
Sounds like a fabulous trip! Our 10-year anniversary is next June and I'm hoping to do something special -- maybe an Alaskan cruise!ReplyDelete
You got so much reading done! How did you like "Rules of Civility"? "A Gentleman in Moscow" was one of my favorite books of 2017 and I'm hoping to read "Rules" sometime this year!
That sounds like a great anniversary trip. My parents cruised to Alaska and loved it.Delete
I really liked Rules of Civility. It feels like Gatsby but it also is a unique story. I need to read A Gentleman in Moscow soon!
