Friday Firsts- Vacation Reading

I’m going away later this month and have vacation on the brain, so my question for today is- What’s the first book you remember reading on vacation?

For me, it’s Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt. Since I was in high school when I read this, it's technically not the first book I ever read on vacation, but it’s one that I remember most vividly because I read it during a trip to Savannah. The nonfiction account of scandalous murder trial that ripped through Savannah’s high society oozes with a languid, spooky Southern atmosphere. Seeing some of those sights in person as I was reading the book just added to the richness of the setting.

So what’s a memorable book that you read while on vacation? Any recommendations for books I should bring on my trip?

  1. I always take books with me on vacation...and end up not reading them. I think my brain gets too stimulated to do much reading!
    I do remember, though, reading 'The Kite Runner' on a trip I took to Austin - I don't think it was the best vacation read!
