After a very productive 15 minute trip to Aardvark Books, this is what I have so far:
Mosquitos, William Faulkner - A book about traveling in the south, how apropo.Add to this three New Yorkers, two New York Times Sunday Magazines, five of Rob's books, one unfinished copy of The Ballad of the Whiskey Robber, an unfinished John Hodgeman iPod-book and some crossword puzzles and I think I'm set! Now if I can just manage to keep my hands off the new books before we actually leave on vacation :)
A Long Way Down, Nick Hornby - I enjoyed his last book "How to Be Good." Intelligent and clever.
The Bedside Book of Birds, Graeme Gibson - The short vignettes and illustrations make for excellent sharing materials.
Fraud, David Rakoff - Mr. Rakoff is an alum of This American Life, which is all I needed to know before buying it.
