Vacation Book Club

What's my favorite pastime on vacation? Luxuriously lying by the pool or on the beach reading, naturally. So my girl friend and I brought along 2 books each that we could read and then discuss. 
Yesterday we completed "The White Princess" by Philippa Gregory which is about Elizabeth of York married to Henry VII.  We discussed the book in between snorkeling, walking through art galleries. and while shopping. 
Really, how perfect! And there is an interesting video interview of the author discussing the book on her website.

Our next selection is Jodi Picoult's "The Storyteller" for an abrupt change if pace. At least we are a bit prepared for the transition by reading her comments on-line. 

In between, I'm reading "Deception Point" by Dan Brown, being a fast reader and not wanting to get too far ahead if our Club.

Historical, psychological and thriller - all covered!
