What to read during a hurricane?

As Hurricane Irene approaches the East Coast, and predictions of heavy rains accompanied by widespread flooding and power outages abound, many folks thoughts naturally turned to: What will I be reading during the storm? (This question coming to mind, of course, after the obligatory pre-storm dash to the grocery store for milk, bread, eggs, water and whatever else you can get your hands on)

Here is a link to my first attempt at Storify, which compiles the answer to that question from posts on Twitter and Facebook. It was pretty fun to put together, I have to admit, but I can't figure out how to publish it to Blogger without making you tackle that link. It's worth a look, anyway.

Oh, and just in case you're curious, books I'm planning to read this weekend are "The Leftovers" by Tom Perotta (on audio ... may have to break out the old Sony Sports Discman if the power goes out) and "The Happiness Project" by Gretchen Rubin.

Stay safe, and happy reading!
