Queen of the Road

Queen of the RoadWell, I did it! I finished another book. Only the second I've read, in its entirety, since October and this was another good pick. Not in the way that Wishful Drinking was (i.e., my life doesn't suck as much as your life) but in a, "Hey, come laugh along with us and our life, which is pretty good," kind of way.

Queen of the Road is the real-life story of Doreen and her husband, Tim, as they chuck their "normal" life for a year, and travel around the country in a converted bus (thus the full title, Queen of the Road: The True Tale of 47 States, 22,000 Miles, 200 Shoes, 2 Cats, 1 Poodle, a Husband, and a Bus with a Will of Its Own). Doreen is a self-proclaimed Long Island JAP (yes, that's Jewish American Princess for those of you not from this area), though I have to say, after spending a year on the road, as she did, while she deserves the title of Queen, I think she certainly shed the JAP title and all the negative connotations that go along with it.

This is a fun, easy read for anyone who has had thoughts of chucking it all or riding around the country in an RV, or for anyone looking for some new cocktail possibilities (a recipe precedes each chapter). I definitely recommend it.

Marcia:

I found Wishful Drinking at the library last weekend and breezed through it on the weekend - you know I could get paid for that kind of writing, LOL. I'll have to look for this new title.

Lisa:

I'm glad you finally finished it. Now we have to make some of those drinks.
