Before our ski trip I bought a magazine, in other words, fluff reading for the fluff skier.
I read it before we left.
So the first day we were at Wintergreen, RePete and I returned to the condo after dinner and left the big boys to their night skiing. I put RePete in the "bubble bath", changed into something comfortable, clicked the television on the weather channel, RePete just loves Storm Stories, and then started exploring.
I don't know if the owners left random books on the shelves and in the cabinets or if other renters left their books behind, but I found one that looked interesting and started reading.
A cute, quirky, love story. Not complicated, not hot and steamy (it was written by a man, after all) and just perfect for sitting out by the slopes.
I wouldn't read this on a normal day - way too many other things to do instead - but stranded on the side of hill? Perfect.
*I'd to formally apologize to anyone renting the condo after us. I took it with me when we checked out so I could finish it. Now donating it to Friends of the Suffolk Library.
