Spring break is finally here, and the twins and I are heading to Florida. My husband will stay here to meet Daughter #1 in New York on Sunday (her study abroad program is sending everyone home before the Royal Wedding), then they will join us in Sanibel. According to my father-in-law, the season is winding down, temperatures are heading up, and the island is getting quieter. That's fine with us. We had snow again on Monday and are desperate for warmth and sunshine.
We're looking forward to a low-key vacation walking on the beach, biking, and reading. I'll have internet access with my iPad, but do not plan on posting until we return.
My books for the trip include:
- A Tragic Honesty: The Life and Work of Richard Yates by Blake Bailey
- Jane and Prudence by Barbara Pym (unless I finish tonight)
- Shadow Tag by Louise Erdrich
- The Report by Jessica Frances Kane
- my iPod loaded with several audios
- plans to peruse the book sale room at the library and visit the bookstores
Twin A is on a classics streak and hopes to read:
- The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
- Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf
- A Room of One's Own by Virginia Woolf
- 1984 by George Orwell
- One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey
- A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by James Joyce
- Great House by Nicole Krauss
Twin B has packed:
- Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
- Harry Potter rereads
- The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
I'm not sure what my husband will decide to bring, and Daughter #1 plans to select a few books at the Sanibel Island Bookshop. Although I won't be posting, I'll try to read a few blogs each day. See you in May!
