Anita (anitanodiva) | 2548 comments Good luck with your vacation reading. I never get anything read while I'm on vacation.

Michelle | 2383 comments Enjoy your vacation. If nothing else I'm sure you'll get to your audio books while traveling.


message 4: by Barb (new)

Barb Thanks, ladies. This is our annual kick-back-and-don't-do-anything-unless-you-want-to trip, so I should have plenty of time to read. Last year, hubby slept for the better part of the first two days, and I averaged a little less than a book a day.

Viki (vikir) | 638 comments Enjoy your trip. I always seem to do more reading on vacation than any other time!

I really like Mary Kay Andrews books, hope you enjoy her new one.

Oh, Dugoni and Ware on audio...nice!

I’m also hoping for Sunset Beach on audio. A friend reviewed it and I got hooked.

Enjoy💜

This will be my first book by Ruth Ware, so I hope it lives up to the hype -- even more so because I'm the one who chose it for my F2F book group's April meeting :)

I was just introduced to Dugoni a year or so ago, but he's already become and auto-read author for me. If you haven't already added his newest, The Eighth Sister, to your list, I'd highly recommend doing so. When I started reading it, GR showed it as a stand alone; by the time I finished a couple of days later, it was changed to be the first in a series. And I was so proud of myself for choosing a stand alone rather than the first in yet another series LOL

Lol! I have the new Dugoni book on audio and was the librarian that added the series info after learning of it on the author’s website😏

Veronica  (readingonthefly) | 1631 comments That "Death of a Country Fried Redneck" title made me laugh. I hope you're able to get some quality reading done during your vacation. I almost never do.
