Today’s Booking Through Thursday question is, “When you travel, how many books do you bring with you? Has this changed since the arrival of ebooks?”
Well, I don’t have an e-reader, and probably won’t until they work out the whole DRM issue, so that’s not a consideration.
But the number of books I take does depend on where I’m going and what I’m doing and how long I’ll be there and how I’m getting there. If I’m headed out for a vacation, where I don’t have to do anything in particular while I’m there, I’ll bring one book for every day I’m going. Usually that ends up being just enough; sometimes I have to scrounge for more to read!
If I’m headed somewhere where I plan on being busy, and I’m flying there, I’ll just bring a couple of books for the flights and hope for the best.
And if I’m driving, I’ve learned that I can’t really get any book reading done because either I’m driving or Scott is driving and I’m talking to him, so I’ll stock up on audiobooks. We’ve been working our way through the Series of Unfortunate Events books, which are good because they’re short and easy to take a break from when it’s time for a pit stop. 🙂
