Merry Merry Christmas

I'm a thousand miles away from where I've been spending Christmas my whole life, and I certainly feel the least I can say that it is much warmer outside than I'm used to. It's still been a good Christmas and I watched Holiday Inn last night to enjoy the mood. Merry Christmas to all my family & my peeps - I'm signing off for a couple weeks until our return from paradise, i mean, ahem, a lovely casa in Taxco and the Guanacaste region of Costa Rica. So exciting!!

I haven't completely finalized the list (I have 5 hours to decide), but books in the runing to take with me are:

2 newest copies of ReadyMade & Budget Living (mags)
Exploring Costa Rica - Fodor's 2001
Costa Rica - Fodor's 2004
The Best American Travel Writing 2003
the elements of sufism - shaykh fadhlalla haeri
The Master Butcher's Singing Club - Louise Erdrich
The Best American Mystery Stories 2003
The Disappearance of the Outside - Andre Codrescu

Also, books that are hardcover or too heavy to really take but still in the running:

The Golden Bough - Sir James George Frazer (thanks, Tom & Julie & fam!!)
A Short History of Nearly Everything - Bill Bryson
Orientalism - Edward Said
Michael Connelly - Chasing the Dime

And of course, the blank journal. Bye!
