Tuesday Thingers

Since we're past the Fourth of July and the summer season has officially started, what are your plans for the summer? Vacations, trips? Trips that involve reading? Reading plans? If you're going somewhere, do you do any reading to prepare? Do you read local literature as part of your trip? Have you thought about using the LT Local feature to help plan your book-buying?

My answer:
I'm going to Las Vegas for three days, then to San Francisco for a week in mid-August, and I've done a little travel-book-reading to get ready but that's about it. I definitely plan to spend a lot of time in bookstores in San Fran (I'm not sure what Vegas has to offer in terms of literary life but we'll see!), and already have a smallish shopping list for one particular bookstore (City Lights). As it gets closer I'll probably do some background historical reading on both cities as well. We'll do other things in San Francisco but I absolutely plan to make book shopping and book stuff part of the trip. In Vegas, my plans are to visit one of my best friends and go to the Star Trek Experience- I'll forgo the highbrow for a couple of days and just have fun. I do plan on using the LT Local feature to help pick out some places to visit! What are you doing?
