In addition to bouncing around the left-hand-side of New Zealand’s roads for a few weeks, our sub-equatorial trip will also require some forty-odd hours in a plane/at airports overall, so a HUGE part of our prep for the trip has included Dr H and I stocking our Kindles with reading material!
The name of the game for this trip? Predictably, nerdtastically, Dr H and I will both be gorging on epic fantasy. Our literature just has to suit the scale of the landscape we’ll be exploring, you know? Behold, my choices:
And Dr H (in addition to Game of Thrones and Clash of Kings) is going with:
And, because he’s like that, he will also be reading some New England Journal of Medicines. I won’t share the covers with you, because frequently they are disgusting to me and I freak out at the mailbox.
What about you?? Do you prefer to read a particular kind of book while you’re traveling? Do you use a Kindle, or do you pack seven real books in one purse?
Hello lovely blog readers! I wanted to update you on my next few weeks, lest anyone take offense to my lack of interaction. Starting tomorrow, Dr Husband and I will be out of the country for a spate, enjoying our honeymoon! We delayed the honeymoon trip so that we could escape winter yet still hang out with penguins. Where is the magical land where this is possible?
New Zealand! We’re so excited (and we’re nerding out like no tomorrow over the chance to see Rohan IRL). So, thanks to the magic of blog and tweet scheduling, I’ll still be posting and tweeting over the next few weeks. However! I won’t be around very much, if at all. So my usual habit of responding to comments will be delayed until January, and if I fail to respond to tweets, it isn’t some personal snub!
I’ll just be visiting this… which is actually the setting for my first book, which was shelved in 2010 but I hope to revive based on inspiration from this trip! Yay!
What about you? Are you traveling anywhere fun for the holidays?
