I'm Searching . . .

It is about that time. . .

I am about to go on vacation again. Last year at this time I went on vacation with the recommendation that I should read "Fr Joe" By Tony Hendra. I thoroughly enjoyed it especially, I think, because it wasn't assigned reading. So, I am appealing to you all. If you know of a wonderful book that I should read this vacation let me know about it.

I love good stories, as a writer myself I am always pulled in by good narrative. I am equally enthralled by mysteries or love stories. If I had to choose I would have to say that I would prefer something with humor over something dark and humorless.

If you know of anything that fits the bill, let me know. Especially if I have to order it before I go on vacation. Leave me a comment and I will take it under advisement. Now remember I am a poor grad student mother of five who works for the church, so if I get a bunch of great suggestions I may have to go raid the library instead of the bookstore and hope I don't leave any behind when I go on vacation.

Thanks for the great tips, in advance.

If you haven't read Anne Lamott, I recommend Traveling Mercies, Bird by Bird, and Plan B. Lots of humor, but she'll also make you cry too.
