Oh my, that scenery is just gorgeous. I bet you enjoyed it.

I did. There were times when I wish we had more time to stop and explore more. We're already looking to do parts of this year's trip next year but give ourself more time in the places where we wanted more.

What a great trip! I've enjoyed several of those places, especially when I lived in Sacramento. Big Bear Lake was where my #2 son had a cabin for a few years

Enjoy your books and your week, and thanks for visiting my blog.

We saw dozens of places for sale in Big Bear. If we lived closer it might be tempting.

I haven’t been to Reno and Tahoe for years. I hope to go back soon. I found out last year I have a cousin that lives in Reno that I have never met. Enjoy all your books!

This was only my second time at Tahoe. Neither time have I stayed for very long.

Looks like a fun trip! Nice assortment of books too. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

I'm frankly shocked that I finished as many as I did. I don't usually read much while traveling — at least not since my teens when I would sit in the back of the RV and read while my parents were driving.

Aj @ Read All The Things!

I love the photos! I hope you’re having a good trip.

I did. We got home a few hours ago which is why I'm finally responding to comments.

Great pics. Hope you had a nice trip. How did I not know that there are Ghostbusters books? What fun. Goddess Boot Camp sounds fun too. Hope you have a great week. Thanks for visiting my blog.

They are comic books. Erik Burnham writes the bulk of them, although Kelly Thompson has done some in the Ghostbusters 2016 universe. Goddess Boot Camp is good but you should read Oh. My. Gods first.

Sounds like a great trip! Love the pics! And Trail of Lightning seems to be getting good early buzz. I'm thinking strongly of getting that one.



Comment #14: Monday, July 16, 2018 at 21:31:00

Trail of Lightning has sold out of its first print run. It's worth reading. It's right in line with books and movies you've reviewed.

I think I got distracted by your reviews and didn't actually remember to comment here... Glad to hear you enjoyed Thornhill. I have a poster of it on my wall (because it is a fantastic cover image), but I haven't read it.

You should read Thornhill. It's mostly wordless, save for some diary entries. The artwork is fantastic throughout.
