Homecoming weekend has arrived at the University of Delaware, home of the Fightin' Blue Hens. I'll be making the trek to visit old friends and college roommates. Check out YoUDee to the left - is that not a cool mascot or what?
Being a typical bookworm I am actually looking forward to sitting in the airport later tonight - perfect place to catch up on my reading! I've already got my stash lined up. I decided to travel with 4 books (even though I know there's no way I am going to get 4 books read this weekend - I like to have options though, you know?) The lucky winners are Transgressions by Sarah Dunant (must have this one read for a book club meeting next week), The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield (finally I am getting around to my RIP books), The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson (heard him speak at the 2005 ALA conference, very funny guy), and of course my guilty pleasure 12 Sharp by Janet Evanovich (her books actually make me laugh out loud when reading them).
Next week, it's another airport as I make my way to NYC for business. What to bring then? Hmmm...I am not one of those people that will take advantage of the downtime to plug away at more work on my laptop. Nope, I take advantage of every precious minute to read my books. The work will still be there when the plane lands. Although I would probably never say that to my boss :)
