Sleep Under the Stars Night books

Today is “Global Sleep Under the Stars Night” and… well… let’s just say I’d rather look out at the stars from my bedroom (or hotel) window than sleep out under them. I don’t do bugs… I don’t do heat… I don’t do sleeping bags… and I don’t do critters. BUT the idea of sleeping under the stars – without all those things I don’t do – does have a certain appeal. Campfires. S’mores. The stars. And just like I can travel vicariously to other places on the pages of books, I can camp vicariously through fiction, too. All of the fun from the comfort of my air conditioned home. None of the heat, critters, or bugs. The following books for Global Sleep Under the Stars Night include camping in some form – whether it be a true ‘under the stars’ experience or a camp with cabins/bunkhouses and activities. I’m sure this is not an exhaustive list – and I just know I’ve forgotten an obvious one or two, but these are the ones that readily came to mind, with a few that a friend reminded me of, too. 🙂

    We have 12 of those authors and their books in the church library.
    My idea of sleeping under the starts is a hotel, preferably on the beach.
    Hubby’s idea is sleeping in the RV.
    I’m with you about the bugs and the critters.
    The temps today were 99-100. That is not the heat index.
    We were camping (RV) in Montana. The stars were so close, it felt like I could reach out and touch them.

    Stars not Starts.
    I worked in the church library today.
    12 hours later I walked back in the house.

    Thank you so much for sharing! 🙂 Carrie, I loved your opening paragraph, and I totally agree! 💗 If only there was a way to enjoy the outdoors without being outdoors with the heat, the bugs, and the critters. 😉 I’m adding a lot of these books to my growing TBR pile. 📚
