    Need a book for vacation

    I was hoping to get some help. I'm headed to Mexico in a few weeks and was wanting to find a good book to take down. I was thinking maybe World War Z...maybe that Motley Crue book from a few years back (always heard amazing things about it). Something that is fun/light/entertaining.


    What's everybody been reading??

    The Passage by Justin Cronin

    The Passage: A Novel: Justin Cronin: 9780345528179: Amazon.com: Books

    Goes from near future police state to 100 years later post-apocalyptic setting. Very well written, there is a second book out The Twelve, and it sounds like he will be writing at least one mroe.

    Anything by Lee Child. One Shot is a good one to start with.

    Re: Need a book for vacation

    I'm going to Mexico next week. I think I'm going to grab a couple old ones off the shelf, maybe Kurt Warner's book, I have an old one about Johnny Orr, or maybe The Punch.

    My favorite airplane book of all time is Naked by David Sedaris. Laugh out loud funny.


    I was a victim of a series of accidents, as are we all.
