With no home theater available, I read ebooks during our cruise. Checked them out from the Tulsa library (where I volunteer 2 hours/week) and loaded them to both my rooted wifi-only smartphone and my 1st generation Nook reader. I read from the Nook during the day, the phone at night. While reading on one device, the other was charging. I also set up Gaye’s Galaxy Note II “phablet” and Nexus 7 tablet with books and magazines from the library. Saves a lot of weight in your suitcases.
My vacation reading list (I keep a virtual bookshelf on LibraryThing):
Darkly Dreaming Dexter by Jeff Lindsay (2006)
Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us by Daniel H. Pink (2011)
A Wanted Man (Jack Reacher) by Lee Child (2013)
Johnny Carson by Henry Bushkin (2013)
Cat Sense: How the New Feline Science Can Make You a Better Friend to Your Pet by John Bradshaw (2014)
Nature Girl by Carl Hiaasen (2007)
Stormy Weather by Carl Hiaasen (2001)
Robopocalypse by Daniel H. Wilson (2012)
We also worked out every day, went on excursions like the above snorkeling trip, and a jeep tour of Cozumel (Gaye drove stick shift), relaxed on the beach and ship with tropical beverages.
I’m stuck indoors today with single-digit temperatures outside, reading the first Jack Reacher novel, Killing Floor, listening to Tiki music on Pandora, and drinking coffee.
Take me back to Cozumel, it’s freezing here!
