Well, I guess I'm on vacation. And so is this blog.

Gloria Steinem's Life on the Road and
breakfast in Gatineau, Quebec
I'm away in Canada on vacation. I had two books in progress before I left - one an audiobook entitled All Fall Down by Jennifer Weiner and White Trash History by Nancy Isenberg. When we left on Friday for the first leg of our trip, I was on the very last CD of the audiobook All Fall Down in my car, but we took my boyfriend's Lexus instead of my wee little Hyundai. Now I have to wait an entire week to find out what happens to the main character, Allison Weiss. And you, dear readers, must wait to find out what I thought of it. 

Unfortunately, my choice for our trip, White Trash History, is interesting but oh so long. I am never going to finish this book without some seriously intensive reading hours, which I don't have while on vacation with Mr. Fussypants. Luckily I loaded a few alternatives onto my Kindle before we left for vacation, which include My Life on the Road by Gloria Steinem, a few titles from authors I met on Twitter, and several classics from my library's free download program. 

I realized yesterday that trying to read two books a week while on vacation is not just difficult but also not conducive to enjoying our time as a couple. So I'll read when I can and blog when I can, and hopefully you'll be patient with me. 

Much love from Canada.
