Summer is here, and, if you’re not in holidays, I hope you will still get some time off work to enjoy the sun, with a good book, obviously!
Today, I’m coming to you with a new book discussion, about books and travelling. Whether you’re used to travelling around, or just for a road trip or a weekend away, How do you read during summertime?
W a n d e r l u s t . If like me, you’re looking at every opportunity to get away and discover the world, you’ll know what kind of struggle it is to bring books with you. As I’m a bit old-fashioned, I don’t own an e-reader, which makes this situation a little bit more complicated. Filling my suitcase with books, and I’ll win myself a little war with limited amount of baggage…and probably break my arms trying to lift the whole thing.
What do I do? Well, as hard as it is to choose, I take one book with me. Yes, just one, whether I’m going away for a few days, or two weeks. Because usually, I end up coming back with a lot more books than I left. Let’s be honest, who can resist an appealing bookstore, filled with books to own? If I’m in the middle of a book, and my departure date is coming too fast, I try to finish the book before leaving.
O n t h e r o a d. Whether I’m travelling by car, train, plane, I always have my book with me in my hand-luggage, so I can keep my book with me at all times. Nothing like a great story to get away, and make us forget about the long trip awaiting. I’m one of the lucky people that can read in the car and not get sick, so I make the most of it.
Let’s discuss! How do you read during summertime? How many books do you carry with you when you travel? Paperbacks, or eBooks? How many books do you read when you’re on holidays? Do you read in transports? Do you buy books when you’re on holidays? Let me know everything in comments!
Happy reading, and enjoy this summer xx
