Mo's Five Staycation Picks

Arrive without traveling--have a staycation with a book. Here are five that I enjoy.

A Couple of Boys Have the Best Week Ever by Marla Frazee (Houghton Mifflin, $16)

Assassination Vacation by Sarah Vowell (Simon and Schuster, $15)

The Splendid Table's How to Eat Supper: Recipes, Stories, and Opinions From Public Radio's Award-Winning Food Show by Lynne Rossetto Kasper (Clarkson Potter, $35.00)

How to Be An Explorer of the World: Portable Art Life Museum by Keri Smith (Penguin, $14.95)
[Editor's note: This book is also one of Maleka's May picks.]

You Are Here: Personal Geographies and Other Maps of the Imagination by Katherine Harmon (Princeton Architectural Press, $24.95)
