A Tire Swing Story is a bite-sized "imagining" inspired by an object I discover while wandering. It could be a curbside trash gem or a message sprayed on a wall. A lost mitten, or an antique store find. Anything goes. I photograph the object and post them together, the story and its inspiration. There will be a new story every Monday and Wednesday. On Fridays, I'll discuss writing, life, love, and coffee. (In no particular order and maybe all at once.)

Casual Fridays: War and Peace or Water for Elephants?

Hi guys, it's Britt. 
I'm getting excited about my sister's wedding and trying to decide what books I should bring on the trip. I've got a big ol' stack of unread ones and I definitely can't pack them all. (I know that's what an e-reader is for. But I don't think electronics and sand go together thank you very much. Not to mention electronics and salt water, and cocktails.)
Okay, so...what do you think? Should I bring a really thought provoking, dense, meaty book or a breezy page-turner? 
It's the same battle I face on my daily subway commute. I always grab something important to read (the outline for a course I'm thinking of taking, the letter from Toronto Hydro to explain my new bill), but instead find myself scanning the newspaper restaurant reviews, or those love and sex advice columns. (Come on, you know which columns I'm talking about!)  

What about you? What's your favorite vacation reading?

Have an inspired weekend, story-makers. See you back here on Monday. 
xo Britt
