One of my favorite things about vacations is the insane amount of reading I get to do on them. I'm not a great flyer, but reading a new book certainly helps me get through it. Then there is reading poolside, during naptime (although there was very little napping this year), while the kids do homework, and after they go to bed but I'm not tired. I didn't get as much reading time this year due to rain (there was much game playing instead), but I still read a few great ones and much more quickly than usual.
The stack of books above are all currently in-progress. I'm almost done with one, half through another and have just started the last two. All of the Best Books of 2013 lists really got me inspired to get at my "to read" list (and added a few more titles to the mix) and so I filled up my library request list very quickly. Now to get them read and returned!
All of this reading has also inspired me to update out Reading List Summary posts. I hadn't published the drafts since July (just got out of habit) and there are some great titles on those lists (especially the kids's books Jack and I read this year). So, if you'd like to check them out, here are the links...
