And Off We Go

Amie and I will be traveling over the next two weeks, so posting will be sporadic, if I post at all. We have a 9-hour plane ride ahead of us (BANG goes the Riot), and my main concern right now is which book to take. That, and getting a letter notarized in which DH gives his consent for me to take our daughter out of the country.

I’ve whittled it down to three:

Death, Sex by Tyler Volk and Dorion Sagan


In the Loyal Mountains by Rick Bass


Wolf Willow by Wallace Stegner


I’ve read about 1/3 of each of these and still can’t decide. Of course I would take The Book if only it weren’t so voluminous – both volumes will come along in my suitcase, though, along with Holmgren’s Permaculture.  Amie will read Charlotte’s Web. But hopefully we’ll both sleep on the plane.

  1. Rick Bass won. But then we got to the plane late and had to stow the carry on in a real hurry. I didn’t have time to yank the book out and it was inaccessible throughout the flight! I watched a woman across the aisle ahead of me reading, nonstop, for 6 hours, on her Kindle, and I ached.
    “Swamp Boy”: best short story I’ve read in ages!
