FEATURES
52 Weekends

If your weeks in New York are a fight (and whose aren't?), weekends should be for flight. But where to escape to? That's where we come in. In the market for a reggae-steeped Jamaican beach? A Vermont mountain that actually guarantees snow? A date with a tarpon in the Florida Keys? Total pampering at an Arizona Spa? So far, so good -- but that's only four weekends. On the following pages, you'll find ideas -- including suggested hotels and restaurants -- for the other 48.

By the Book
BY ROBERT KOLKER

Ann Godoff, a former car saleswoman and architecture student who found her calling in a temp job at the age of 30, wasn't exactly on the fast track to become the president of a publishing company. But after her Random House predecessor Harry Evans's string of publicity coups and seven-figure advances, she's published quieter books to greater profit -- and nineteen best-sellers last year. Next: a new paperback line, which has always been the missing weapon in Random House's arsenal.
