|Monterrey Peninsula, California|
The combination of a three hour time zone difference, leading a four session weekend retreat, and that large bowl of fettuccine pesto I had for lunch at the FishWife caught up with me. Big time.
My lunch was so filling, I didn't even eat dinner. Didn't want any. Which is good because now I'm in a hotel by the airport and food is scare. There's a free hotel breakfast tomorrow, but it starts at 6:00 and I leave for the airport at 5:10. I really hope there's something good for breakfast in the Oakland airport.
I need to go back to sleep, wake up at 4:30 AM and be on an eastbound plane by 6:30. I will spend all day flying and changing planes. I leave here at 6:30 AM and get home at 8:30 PM. But that's OK because I do some of my best reading on planes. I can read novels for hours completely guilt-free on a plane! Well, it's not like I could do much else during that time.
The problem is, I forgot to pack a novel this time. I only have non-fiction with me. So I hope the Oakland airport also has a good bookstore.
What do you read on planes? If you are a novel reader too, I'd love for you to do me a favor. Pop over to the She Reads site and answer as many of the questions as you can in the poll on the current post.
At the very least please comment there to say if you prefer "Parlor fiction" or "Attic fiction." I kind of like those terms. Well, off to sleep my way through my last few hours here on the West Coast. I'll be back here on Tuesday with another post.
