On the Web

Michael Kraus

These two sites will help you make travel plans--or find a great book to read once you get there.

Travel planning made easier and customized pink cozies? The website imin.com spoils us with its group-friendly tools, like private trip pages, discussion boards to hash out decisions (or joke around with others in your group), and shareable photo albums. It'll even help you create personalized stuff, such as hats, totes, towels, and golf balls (the site is for guys too).

At Goodreads.com, a website that launched late last year, friends (and their friends, and their friends' friends) can share reading lists and book reviews, using a star system to rank titles. Women taking their book club on the road may want to sign up together to generate ideas for the trip. In case you're interested, our suggestion is Eat, Pray, Love, by Elizabeth Gilbert. It's about her journeys to Italy, India, and Bali. And FYI, Gilbert's 2000 novel, Stern Men, has a sex scene that we're still thinking about--you might want to make sure that book's on your list, too!
