In the Bag

We recently visited Capitol Reef National Park as a family to hike and camp. My sister Haley and her husband David are expert campers and hikers and took us there. The park is gorgeous, and we did a five-mile water hike that was a blast.

We arrived on a Friday evening and ate at a delicious burger joint in Torrey, Utah. When my sister walked away from our table, I noticed some books in her bag. I pulled them out and took a picture. She came back to the table and said, “Did you take a picture of my books? For your blog?” She had “caught” me, and yes, the picture was for the blog. Here’s what my sister and her husband were reading.

David’s is Don Quixote and Haley’s is the one about blood and guts. They both look like interesting titles, and after discussing the contents of each with my sister, I would love to read them both.

What books are you carrying in your bag?

  1. I’m carrying “The Next Best Thing” by Jennifer Weiner (a “for fun” read), and a bunch of self-publishing how-to books on my iPad that I read whenever I need a hit of inspiration! Happy summer reading! 🙂

  2. The park looks beautiful! But, what is a water hike?
    This Monday we’re going on our bike trip. I have to choose a book carefully because I can only bring one. 🙂

    1. Basically, we were hiking in a small stream, with a few waterfalls along the way that we climbed down. It was so fun. I’m also going on a trip next week and I’m really stressing over which book to bring. I’m leaning toward The Portable Steinbeck!
