"Bookish Images Monday" "Musing Mondays" Memes


Cindy's Book Club

Cindy over at Cindy’s Book Club is hosting a weekly meme called Bookish Images Monday.  Such a fun meme I just had to participate.
   I'd love for you to participate in Bookish Images Monday.
Remember, you do NOT have to post a ton of images--one will be fine if that's all you want to do! (I just tend to go a little crazy.)
They can just be interesting or pretty book covers if you want. Or just pictures of books, bookcases, libraries or bookstores. Or they can be humorous, or vintage, or related to movies based on books. They just need to be book-related in some way.

This week’s musing hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading asks…
If you were (are) going on vacation, what books would you take with you?
I normally only take two books with me, the current one I am reading (which right now is "The Midwife's Confession, by Diane Chamberlain) and the other one would have to be very light and fun reading (maybe Barbara Delinsky's "Friends & Lovers," which is 2 books in 1) Yes that sounds right to me. What could be more fun than reading about Friends & Lovers... 

I find when I'm vacationing I don't get much reading done. Since my husband is not a reader of books, he likes to be busy sightseeing, visiting with family and friends, (no lovers) and eating out which we both love and it shows.  Therefore, that doesn't leave much time for me to be reading. 

So how about you, what do you like to pack for reading on your vacation?


  1. I usually take two books too on vacation...and usually never read I explain in my post. ;-)

  2. Two books seem to be the norm even though more books are the intentions. I loved the answer you left on my had me LOL

  3. It depends on where I am going. When we visited Boston, I knew we would be sightseeing so I took 2 books, when I go to Florida, I know it's reading at the beach time and I take more.

  4. Wow, lovely bookish images and thoughts.

    Thanks for visiting my Monday post.

  5. I always pack 2-4 books for holidays, but rarely read as I am too busy with 3 children :)

    Have a great week


  6. Yeah, I guess it does depend on the type/length of vacation. If it's a new place where you'll be doing a lot of sightseeing etc, there's not much reading that will be done. But if it's to a familiar vacation spot where you end up with a lot of relaxation time, a good book is always welcome!

    Here's my Musing Mondays (August 8) post!

  7. I've just had a friend recommend Diane Chamberlain as an author. I've got 'Her mother's shadow' on my TBR pile so I'm looking forward to my first taste of her writing! And you can't go wrong with Barbara Delinsky. I only discovered her this year but have enjoyed her books so far!

  8. That is a saucy booking image! I love it!

  9. I like the book photo!

    I tend to take a few books with me on vacation. When I recently went away I took a self-help, a suspense thriller and a collection of short stories. But I barely read anything, I was too busy soaking up the sun and sightseeing to sit and read.

  10. Before I got my Nook, I would pack 10-12 books and it drove my husband crazy. It didn't matter how long the trip was. I needed to have a choice :)
