My friend Steve invited me to spend Passover with his family in Connecticut, so I’m gonna be away from the Left Coast for a few days. I’m really looking forward to it (it’s my first Passover!), and excited to have another mini-vacation (it’s my third one this year!).

One book I try to have with me whenever I travel is Tales of the City by Armistead Maupin. It’s part of a series that takes place in 1970s San Francisco, and it makes my homesickness more bearable. I’m reading the second installment for my reading challenge, so it’s like I’m feeding two birds with one scone!

What’s a book (or an author or a genre) you have to take with you when you travel?
