No posts for a week – Husbanks and I are headed to sunny Playa del Carmen where my world will nary be emails, meetings, heels, early mornings, or working … but books, sun, flip-flops, sundresses, and bikinis! In Mexico, we will celebrate a belated five-year anniversary and Ryantine’s Day.
For you bibliophiles, here’s the heat I’m packing:
1. Jerusalem, Karen Armstrong
My friend Elizabeth told me that Armstrong is such a fun writer that she is not accepted in theological academic circles. Historical novel a little too loosey-goosey for academia? Comparing Abrahamic religions? I. AM. DROOLING.
2. Accidental Tourist, Anne Tyler
My Mom’s fave, can’t believe I haven’t read it yet. I guess I just needed to be ready.
3.The Grapes of Wrath, John Steinbeck.
I am an Okie AND East of Eden is my favorite book. How have I not read this?
Religion novel, contemporary-ish novel that reminds me of home, and a classic. I think I am set.
Hil Street – out!
