    Well, Lisa, you're reading list just helped me with ideas for my brother's birthday. I'm sending The Art of Intelligence and The Founding Fathers to his Kindle. Those are both just up his alley. Thanks!

    I hope you enjoy your books on your vacation.

    We're leaving next week for our African safari, and I have Maine and Cutting for Stone for my first two books. Boy, we're on some long flights, with a really long layover on our return in Amsterdam, so I have back up books too. I haven't read Gone with the Wind since high school, so I have it on the ready, and I can always reread the Outlander series if I run short. I think I should be set though.

    E-readers are great, but they're especially handy for vacation.

    Thanks, Andrea.

    It's been a bit of a whirlwind. I think we just made our reservations just over 2 1/2 months ago. This is really my husband's dream trip, and everything sort of fell into place for us. The icing on the cake is that our sons, his dad and brother are able to go too. But, just last week, he said laying on the beach in Aruba is looking awfully good right about now.

    Some of friends and family don't understand why we go back to Aruba every year, but those are obviously people who've never been . For us, and I'm sure many on the board share the feeling, there's just something special about Aruba. It's a combination of the sun, the people, the activities, the beaches and it goes on. The minute we're on the plane headed to Aruba, a sense of peace takes over, and all life's stresses fade away .

    Enjoy your safari

    Thanks to forum member Edronenburg for introducing me to Henry A. Crumpton's
    Art of Intelligence. Some background http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=7408420n&tag=mncol;lst;1 from his 60 Minutes interview.

    I actually purchased "
    The Founding Fathers: The Lives and Legends..." after reading Founding Brothers: The Revolutionary Generation by Joseph Ellis, two times Imo, a "must read" for any student of the birth of our nation.

    time to wake up this thread!

    for our upcoming trip........e books for both of us are Swimming to Catalina( woods) and Along Came a Spider (patterson)
    he is a patterson fan and we are both woods' fans.

    audiobooks for us also include Four to Score (evanovich) of the whole stephanie plum series, we skipped #4....dunno why. also Collateral Damage (stuart woods) and for me, Daddy's Gone a 'Huntin' (Mary Higgins Clark).


    we assume that will be PLENTY.

    Still lining up the favorite authors.... Saunders, Connolly, Coben and Child.... Generally do 3-4 reads for the week. Dunno what to expect with DW this year. Last year it was 50 shades.... just like 50% of the other DW's on the beach!

    Unfortunately, I won't be vacationing in Aruba this year. But we are heading to Key West and Jupiter in about a week. My reading line-up is two books by Patterson (Merry Christmas, Alex Cross and 12th of Never) and Jodi Picoult (The Storyteller). That should hold me for a week. If I get through those, I have several other books on my nook that I haven't read yet.
