I’m on vacation this week. I didn’t go anywhere exciting or exotic, I’m just not at work. Spending time puttering around the house, playing with the dog and … oh yeah. Reading. A lot.
Do your reading habits change when you’re on vacation? Do you read more? Do you indulge in lighter, fluffier books than you usually read? Do you save up special books so you’ll be able to spend real vacation time with them? Or do you just read the same old stuff, vacation or not?
It depends on the type of vacation. If it’s a staycation or visiting family or friends, I tend to read a lot more. I don’t really save up any special books; I just keep going down my TBR list. However, if I am going way to a place I have never been before I find that I don’t really read that much because I spend most of my time exploring. I usually pack the book I am currently reading so that I can read on my way there and back. If I am nearly finished with the book I pack an extra one.
