Books and Music for the Road

It is almost time to leave California. I am really excited. More acuratly, I'm a host of strong emotions. I've cried at least twice today- not because I'm sad, rather because I feel so humbled to have this honor and to have so many great people in my life who have helped me to realize this dream.
I had a great final practice today and said thank you and goodbye to friends. I am packed. My Victorreader Stream is full of music and audible books.

Here's what I'll be reading:
Eat, Pray Love- Elizabeth Gilbert
Satisfied Customers Tell Three Friends, Angry Customers Tell 3,000-Pete Blackshaw
Strangers - Dean Koontz
Poleo - David Oshinsky
Obama Nation- Jerome Corsi
