Not to be a jerk about it, but I’m going to be in Hawaii four days from now. On my honeymoon. If there’s ever been anything more awesome, I don’t know about it.
I’ve never been to Hawaii, so I am obviously very excited about it, but I’m also excited about the prospect of a vacation that has been designed with the sole purpose of relaxing in a beautiful place. Really excited.
In preparation for my trip, I thought long and hard about which books I wanted to bring along with me, since I’m planning on spending a good chunk of time reading on the beach or by the pool. I settled on Telegraph Avenue even before my book club chose it as our October selection, and I also decided to finally delve into Cheryl Strayed’s memoir Wild. I’ve been a fan of Strayed’s “Dear Sugar” column for a long time, and I’ve been really looking forward to this book. I think I was saving it as a treat for myself–it’s actually been on my bookshelf for a few months now.
Do you choose special books for vacation reading?
More to the point, this post will be my last until I return in October. From here on in, it’s all about getting married, being married, and being in Hawaii. Have a good two weeks everyone!
