One of my favorite things about vacationing and extremely long road trips (can we do 1400 miles with 4 kids? AWWWYEAHHH!!) is reading a big pile of books. Here's what I tackled (notice I didn't say "finished") over the trip.
- Undressing the Moon by T. Greenwood (fiction - man, that girl can write - I think I read this in 24 hrs, it was so compelling)
- Half-Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls (true-life novel, they call it - same gal that wrote the bestselling memoir The Glass Castle) Best quote from this book: "Teachers in their way are holy -- angels leading their flocks out of the darkness..."
- The Walk by Richard Paul Evans (fiction, don't bother)
- Two Rivers by T. Greenwood (fiction, I know, there's a pattern here...)
And on the topic of food, if you'll indulge me one more moment. I was disappointed to see there were ZERO Chipotle restaurants once we drove out of the state of Minnesota. Maybe I just didn't drive by the right places, but there were none to be seen. I did enjoy my share of Chickfila, but I don't know if I could live without dear Chipotle, either.
