Friday Reads 11/9/18

It's here! It's here! It's finally here!!! When I get off work today, I'm starting my lost book weekend. My giant suitcase is in my car. Seriously, it's huge. I packed pajamas, 2 pants, 2 shirts, my toothbrush, hairbrush, deoderant,my slippers, and about 50 books. I made three trips from my shelves to my bag, piling in books. Then I'd move something and find another book I wanted to take. Can I read 50 books in one weekend? Hell no. But I need lots to choose from. Who knows what I will be in the mood to read? I only packed a couple of serious, thoughtful books, tho. I mostly packed fluff. My brain has been in "skim for information" mode for so long, that I need to practice long term engagement.

So, what am I taking? This may not be a complete list as I'm working completely from memory.
