What books do I take?

Well, I'm off to Mom's tomorrow for housesitting, and the big question of what I should take with me to read has come up again. I always take far too many books with me when I go over there, as I always expect to get in more reading than I do.

The one set of books that I have pretty much been sure that I would take with me are The Lord of the Rings books, including The Hobbit and The Children of Hรบrin. I have wanted to re-read these for awhile now, and decided that this would be the perfect opportunity. With the amount of reading that I have been able to accomplish lately, I'm sure that I can have these read by the end of the first weekend I am there, so I need to decide what else to take. I think I'm going to take over the couple of books that I picked up at B&N last time I was there (Spirit Gate by Kate Elliott, The Mysterious Affair at Styles by Agatha Christie and Daughter of the Blood by Anne Bishop) and I think that should get me through the entire 2 weeks. If not, I'm sure that I can find something over at Mom's house that I would want to read.
