When I used to not travel that much I read to travel to other destinations. Now that I travel for work, I want to bring friends with me. I am not traveling to exotic locales but do enjoy the travel and my job. Airports, planes, driving and hotels can be a little lonely so I like to bring some friends along with me.
This is the 3rd time the Plum family has traveled with me. Grandma Mazur made me laugh out loud last night. I know Stephanie and Joe are going to be a series of missed connections. And I want to be invited to the Plum's for dinner. Is that so bad? No way.
Plus I bought this one at Prairie Lights so an added bonus. Paul was not there so I only ended up with 3 books but had so much fun in the store. The University of Iowa students were coming back to campus and buying books for classes. I don't know what it is about that store - the way they display the books, the atmosphere, something - but you want every title. Every book looks interesting.
Today I'm in another city and have a local bookstore to visit - so more details later! But if you are out on the road try to get to a local bookstore. They still exist and they generate an excitement about reading that is infectious.
