Exciting Booknerd Adventure Ahead!
I’m pleased as punch to be planning a road trip that my husband, baby, and myself will embark on in April of 2012. We’re leaving Chicago and making a loop through the following cities before heading home:
- Springfield, Missouri
- Dallas, Texas
- Austin, Texas
- Memphis, Tennessee
So, of course I’m now on the hunt for books related to these cities (or by authors from these cities) to read. I’ve already scored James Michener’s “Texas” and Stephen King’s new “11/22/63” but I know there’s so many more out there. Clearly I’ll have to read something about Elvis Presley (Hello, Memphis!) and there’s an O. Henry museum in Austin, so that’s also a lead I’ll likely follow.
