Hey all! Need a couple book recs for an upcoming beach trip.

Does anyone here work in book publicity/marketing?
I currently work in B2B marketing and have determined what I really want to do is market books, especially fiction. I'm looking for some insight into the industry to understand if it's possible to make the shift, and if so, what it will take.
If anyone's available to talk, please let me know! Would be very grateful for insights.
What's the best less-than-3 stars hotel you've ever stayed in and what made your stay so special?
My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.

What's the best course of action when you find yourself at a job that's far more chaotic than you assessed while interviewing? Upon starting this job a couple of weeks ago, I discovered between the time I interviewed and my start date they had hired a new CEO, laid off all of their off-shore teams, changed my position to a new hiring manager, and added an on-call rotation to all engineering teams. None of this showed up in my research of the company or my interviews.

I have been in my current role over 6+ years (as HR mgr) and it's very transactional and not very strategic.

My wife and I are considering planning a trip to Tulum, Mexico for late July. She’s slightly reserved in asking her employer (she works at a dental practice) if it’s okay to take time off with the concern her employer may feel off-put by the request. I personally hate the thought of someone else restricting my ability to make my own decisions, but also want to be contieous of others concerns as well. I feel at some point we all will be in a similar situation - to where we want to go do...

Does this happen at time of purchase or closer to time of travel? And does it matter where I buy the ticket from (American website vs. an aggregator like Expedia for example?). It it matters, travel is to London from Chicago.
