A Trip to the Beach by Melinda and Robert Blanchard. It really puts you in the Caribbean frame of mind!

I am reading "Hard Eight" right now by Janet Evanovich. Very good. I also loved "Skipping Christmas" by John Grisham. It had a little about cruising in it.

"Three weeks in Paris", by Barbara Taylor Bradford is a wonderful romantic novel out in paperback. It's perfect cruise reading.

I was sooo surprised to see your replies so quickly.....

I've been reading some lawyer series books by Perri O'shaughnessy.... started them on a trip to Lake Tahoe and they are all placed in Tahoe City.... It's fun to read about streets that you have been on....

Anyway, if you like John Grisham books, these are the same witha tad more romance.

Should I mention, I'm going to Bermuda?

Harry Potter of course! You'll need at LEAST a 7-day cruise to finish it though! Just finished it for the 2nd time since it came out on June 21st. Good reading.....

"Confederacy of Dunces" by John Kennedy Toole, "Naked" by David Sedaris (laughed out loud so many times, people on deck asked me what I was reading!), Michener's
"Caribbean", "Leap of Faith", Queen Noor of Jordan, very informative about today's world, "Decked", Carol Higgins Clark, a shipboard mystery, "Everything is Illuminated" by Jonathan Safran Foer" - fairly new and wonderful! Bon voyage!

I just finished the latest Dave Barry novel, "Tricky Business." It was definitely not as good as his previous novel, "Big Trouble," which was terrific.

Cheers,
