I am going on vacation. I usually do this time of year after the tourists have gone back to work and school. I am driving up the I5 freeway to visit a friend. I have two books on my iPad: Duplex by Kathryn Davis and Thinner Than Skin by Uzma Aslam Khan. In case technology fails, I have two print books: Cartwheel by Jennifer DuBois and The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern.
But really I plan to relax, hang out with my friend, eat her astounding cooking, maybe take a walk in the woods. I will be back next week with more reviews, perhaps a little travelogue.
