As someone without an eReader, it can be difficult to choose which books to bring on a trip. Scratch that, it’s more difficult choosing how many books to bring.
Let’s be real, I’m going to pack at the last minute and blindly choose a bunch of paperback novels to put into my suitcase. When I go on a vacation to relax, reading is pretty much all that there is on my to-do list. I’m not the type of gal to hit up the shops (unless it’s a bookstore), so my family can sometimes be a little exasperated when I just want to stay in our cabin or hotel or home or whatever to just read.
I work in a government office where people come in all the time for help. I’ve worked retail for about ten years before then. When I go on vacation, if I can just be holed up in a room with my books and a puppy or two, I’m good. Let me indulge in the imaginary confinements of the pages of a good fantasy novel and ignore the outside world.
