From eighty degrees to twenty. SO not cool. Well, actually.... (Poor word choice.)
We had a marvelous time in the sunshine. The weather was amazing. Blue, cloudless skies. Eighty degrees. Not one drop of rain. Zero humidity. We stayed on the grounds of our resort and bopped from one kiddie pool to another. My boys LOVED it, and my five year old taught himself to "swim". I came home with two boys who are now part fish.
The only time I left the grounds was when my hubby and I took a taxi to a piano bar to meet Michael from In Time. We chatted for a few hours and totally had a blast finally meeting one another! I still can't believe that only a few days ago we sat across from each other, live, in person. Crazy!!!
You'll all be happy to know that books are not dead. (In case you were worried.) Poolside, there were MANY paperback novel readers. Here's the breakdown for you.
Harry Potter (spotted twice, each read by teenage girls)
The Lake Shore Limited by Sue Miller (read by an adult female)
a Tom Clancy book (read by an adult male)
a Dean Koontz book (read by an adult female)
From the Heart by Nora Roberts (laying on a beach chair, no reader in sight)
The Pilots Wife by Anita Shreve (read by an adult female)
The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
a book by Michelle Richmond
Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins (read by a teenage girl)
The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
There were more. Many more that I couldn't see clearly enough to discern the titles or authors of. You know, during my unspyworthy walk-bys. I have nothing on Jen Garner, er, Sydney Bristow.
But I was excited to see so many readers. One woman had a nook/kindle (sorry, don't know them well enough to be able to tell the difference) and another one had an Oprah magazine. (Otherwise there were books, books and more books. So keep writing people so beach goers have something to do while burning their skin!)
Me? I have two books downloaded on my laptop, but read neither. I did write a few thousand words for Solstice and read most of erica's A New Day. Someday it will be published so you can enjoy it too!
