Since we’re past the Fourth of July and the summer season has officially started, what are your plans for the summer? Vacations, trips? Trips that involve reading? Reading plans? If you’re going somewhere, do you do any reading to prepare? Do you read local literature as part of your trip? Have you thought about using the LT Local feature to help plan your book-buying?
i am going on a road trip, by myself, for 6 days through southeastern Oregon, northern California, and northwest Nevada to see my very favorite singer in all the land Neko Case i am excited about this to a sort of ridiculous degree. i will have never been to ANY of the places i am going, and i am deliberately avoiding the interstates. as such, atlases and guidebooks are going to be crucial. moreover, there will be approximately 30-35 hours of driving all told during this trip, so i am planning to lay in a supply of audio books for the road as well. i’m thinking the theme will be: transformation classics. coming-of-age, travel tales, books which contain scenes of desert revelation. oh, yes.
cant fricken wait. only 6 1/2 more weeks to go….
