What Do You Read When You Travel?

Today I’m headed to Minnesota for the Winter Convocation of the Minnesota Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church, as well as an event with the Southwestern Minnesota Minnesota Synod (Lutheran). In addition to planning my wardrobe to meet the weather, I’m gathering books to read en route. I like to read books on a plane that I don’t have time to sit down and read when I’m at home.

Here’s my list for this trip: Life Together, by Dietrich Bonhoeffer, which was sent to me by an audience member late last year. I’ve never read it, and I’m looking forward to it.

The Wisdom of the Enneagram by Riso and Hudson, in preparation for a workshop on the Enneagram I’ll be attending later this month.

Finally, Joanne Fluke’s Lemon Meringue Pie Murder. I just started this: it’s a charming mystery set in Minnesota in June (so I can see what I’m missing in January). I may throw in just one more paperback mystery since my idea of hell is running out of things to read.

What do you like to read on the road (or books you listen to, if you drive)?

    Margaret- I think when you get to Minnesota in January you are going to find a new definition of hell- January in Minnesota. I noticed that in St. Paul today it was 8 with a windchill of -5. Here in Dallas it is 64. Have a good trip.
