Booking Through Thursday
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?"
I don't have an e-reader although I am seriously looking at them and have been for several months now. I see the advantage of them when traveling, and I do a lot of traveling. Typically I overpack when it comes to books. When I went to the United States this past summer for a three week trip, I brought along about 15 books (We drove so space wasn't as much of an issue.) and I definitely went overboard, but I would go to pieces if I actually ran out of something to read. If I travel somewhere where I have to fly, I usually bring three books, but I search online for the nearest bookstore to where I am staying in case I ever run out of reading material. I've come to the conclusion that I have a serious addiction to books and reading.
I don't actually do a lot of reading while on holidays, but the comfort of knowing the books are there in case I feel like reading is enough. I wonder how many other people feel this way about their books.
