Some of you might notice the new countdown widget on my sidebar that says, "30 days until Hawaii!!" That's right, I'm going to Hawaii. Eeeee!! This time next month I will be in paradise.
It's actually a family vacation. And we are not one of those families that normally jets off to tropical islands or goes skiing in Vail. Um, no. We've gotten around the country quite a lot on our many camping trips, but we've never gone nearly so exotic before. So this is a huge deal for us. We've all been looking forward to it for months and months.
But this post wasn't just to make you all jealous. ;) I've been collecting some books to read this month that are set in Hawaii, to make the wait a little less intolerable. So far, I've got:
Hawaii, James Michener (I'm not exactly sure I'm going to get to this one, actually, as it's about a million pages long, but who knows)
The Shadow and the Star, Laura Kinsale
Your Mouth Drives Me Crazy, HelenKay Dimon
Anyone have any other recommendations for books set in Hawaii? Or just advice about Hawaii would be good too. We'll be on Maui for 7 days. *sigh*
