Vacation Reads

As we prepare for our 2 weeks in Cancun, I've been loading up my Sony Reader with a ton of books to keep me busy when babies nap or when I decide to drop them off at the baby club for a couple of hours so I can curl up by the pool and read.  To top it off, when I turned on my computer today, a reminder popped up about a book that was being released today that I knew I would want on vacation.  Imagine my glee when I logged into the Sony Reader store and saw yet another new release that I have been waiting for for YEARS!   The new Jean M. Auel book "The Land of the Painted Caves" was released today!   Um, ya - that wasn't the one my computer was reminding me about, though.  That one was the new Sweet Valley book...ya.  I'm still a kid.  It's a guilty pleasure.  I won't be ashamed to admit it. :P

So now, a sampling of what's on my reader just waiting for me to tear into:
  • The Land of the Painted Caves - Jean M. Auel
  • Sweet Valley Confidential - Francine Pascal
  • Mile Markers - Kristin Armstrong
  • The 4 Hour Body - Timothy Ferriss
  • The Accidental Billionaires - Ben Mezrich (The Social Network was based on this one)
  • Freedom - Jonathan Franzen
All in all - the reader is stocked up with about 75 books so I think I'm covered for the 2 weeks I'm gone.  If there isn't something on there I want to read then I can only conclude that I am broken.

I've also been saving all of the magazines that have come in the mail so I won't need to buy any.  Let me tell you, this is soooo much harder than it seems.   Fresh magazines drive me bonkers until I read them.   I have a new Fitness, Runners World and Women's Running to keep my busy :)

And, in failing to find a waterproof cover for my Reader..I've packed lots of large ziplocs so I can protect it from the stupidheads who like to splash lovely, relaxing readers like myself at the pool.

Ready for the sand and sun :)  Cancun, here I come!
