A peek in the weekend reading bag

I just packed the bag with the family’s books for the weekend, and I thought—in lieu of having anything else to blog about—I’d share what we’re all going to be reading.


True Love and Other Disasters by Rachel Gibson. (I struggled the first few pages with the extreme Anna Nicole Smith association, but that faded and I’m enjoying it now. I think I’d be enjoying it a little more if I wasn’t coming off the back-to-back utter awesomeness of Erin McCarthy’s Flat-Out Sexy and Hard and Fast.


He’s finishing up Heartsick by Chelsea Cain, and he’s also taking the sequel, Sweetheart, because neither the new Reacher nor the new Davenport were in at the library.

The Tall Kid:

Hunting Eichmann: How a Band of Survivors and a Young Spy Agency Chased Down the World’s Most Notorious Nazi by Neal Bascomb and Escape from the Deep: A Legendary Submarine and Her Courageous Crew by Alex Kershaw.

The Short Kid:

He doesn’t take any books to camp. It’s his time to run amok through the campground with his friends and burn off all the energy he saves up while stuck at home with his couch-monkey mother and older brother. At home he’s been reading a variety of books on the history of flight and the exhibits of the Smithsonian in preparation for the trip to DC we hope to take in April.

Happy reading, and see y’all Sunday night!
