During my visits with family I know I'll be busy having a good time with them, but since I tend to rise early I'll undoubtedly have time for quiet reading since I won't have a computer to distract me. And it's probably not going to be constant hustle and bustle. I'm sure I'll have those moments during the day when I can read a page or two or even more.
Here are the books I'm taking with me on my Christmas Vacation:
Flannery: A Life of Flannery O'Connor by Brad Gooch -- I started on this one in September and I want to finish this up first. It's a biography of one of my favorite authors. If you've never read any of O'Connor's work, you really should treat yourself to it. She is most noted for her short stories. They are dark, funny, and bizarre.
Burning Down the Shack (How the 'Christian' Bestseller is Deceiving Millions) by James B. De Young-- The Shack inspired so much controversy that books were written about the book. I want to read another side of the argument.
Finding God in the Shack by Roger E. Olson -- This book was sent as a companion study to The Shack. Maybe I'll read this if I'm not "shacked out" by the time I get to it. I'll see how interested I am in the topic after reading the other two books.
Ice Cold by Tess Gerritsen -- This is a book that sounded like it had an interesting premise. It looks like a quick easy read that will be a time-passer during lulls in the festive events of the season.
