Getting Ready

I've officially decided on my reading material for our upcoming trip to Florida.
Books & Magazines
Yes, I've probably gone a bit overboard here. But if I'm going overboard on clothes I might as well go overboard on books and magazines as well. Plus we're driving which means I don't have to worry about fitting it all into a carry on. And it also means I have several hours of driving as a passenger, good thing I don't get carsick. We're taking the boy's car which is a manual, and since I can't drive a manual he can't expect me to drive.

But maybe you think I should be talking to him while we drive? Well it seems her sister with her two kids doesn't think she'll be able to fit everything into his parents' car. So the driving arrangements are the boy's mom, his sister, his brother-in-law, niece, nephew in one car. The second car is the two of us, and the boy's dad. I've decided I'll be in the back to go them some good father-son bonding time. Or really to make myself feel less guilty about listening to my ipod, sleeping and reading the whole time.

So now that I have all types of books to choose from while I'm in Florida, which ones do you thing I should start with? Have you read any of these? And are you a chronic over packer as well?



  1. That looks like a good line-up of chick lit for your trip! Perfect beach reading material IMO :-)

  2. There's no such thing as too many books or magazines. Looks like how I travel, too :) Have a great trip!

  3. I've really been wanting to read One Day! Let us know how that one is!

  4. I have not read any of these, excited to hear your reviews!
