Vacation

I was on vacation in Germany for the past week..so no posts from me and almost no reading! I was busy sightseeing and shopping. I was in Munich, Germany for 6 days and went to Salzburg Austria on a daytrip. It was absolutley beautiful and I cannot wait to go back and explore more of Germany and Austria. The 2 books I read on the trip were The Black Sun - James Twining and Fatal Voyage - Kathy Reichs. Both were great easy vacation reads. I really enjoyed both of them.

The Black Sun is about an ex art theif who is asked to help the British secret service to help find an old artifact and to also locate an old enemy. The book is set in the US, Germany, Russia and a few other places. I believe that there are more in the series.

Fatal Voyage was one of the best books in the 'Bones' series that I have read. Set in the hills of Tennessee, Dr. Brennen is asked to help identify bodies after a plane mysteriously crashes. Of course things are always as they seem and a really creepy mystery begins to unfold. I bought another one in Munich and have to try and keep my hands off it for as long as possible!

I have signed up for 'Deweys 24 Hour Read-A-Thon' which begins tomorrow. Since I live in Turkey I have to figure out what time I am supposed to begin. I have my books picked out already that I want to read and am pretty excited for my first Read-A-Thon!! Who else is participating?
