Since I was little, reading has been one of my favorite things to do. But with today's busy lives and a little one running around, I don't get to read as much as I would like. That's why when I made my list of things I wanted to do in Spain, reading was at the absolute top of the list. I am already daydreaming about reading in little cafes, outside in the park, on the train from Barcelona to Madrid, on the balcony of my little AirBnB in Madrid. I can feel the sparks of joy already!
To travel light, I'm going with my Kindle, so I'm planning to load it up with a few titles and then see what I'm in the mood for when I get there.
Fates and Furies by Lauren Groff (I think I have started this book about five times ... I'm going to have to start over, AGAIN.)
Parenting without Power Struggles by Susan Stiffelman (I know, I know ... a parenting book on vacation?!? But trust me, this one is a must.)
Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy (Bonus: it's free on my Kindle!)
I Know This Much Is True by Wally Lamb (I read this years ago, and it's probably my favorite book of all time. I'd love to re-read it.)
I was thinking of pulling a few ideas off of this list of "life-changing" books from Real Simple (you know I love anything that promises to be life-changing!), but I would love your ideas as well, via comments here on the blog or via Facebook, LinkedIn or Instagram.
What books are you bringing on your vacation?
Have you read any of the titles on the Real Simple list?
What's your favorite book of all time?
I'm so excited for my next post about Paper, where I get to tell you all about one of my Top Ten Favorite Things of All Time: The Five Minute Journal.
