Booking Through Thursday - Vacation Reads

If you'd like to join in on Booking Through Thursday, just click the button above.

This week's question...

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?

My answer...

I tend to read more because I'll have more time when I'm on vacation whether it's on a plane ride or waiting in an airport or lying on a beach. Also, I don't take a computer on vacation with me. Therefore, I'm not checking email, blogging or Facebooking. More time to read!

As for the type of books, I try to stay away from review books because I need to clear my head and it would feel as if I'm doing a job instead of vacationing. I'm the type that has to write my review right after I finish a book or I forget what the book is about. LOL Short term memory :) However, I'll be going away in a couple of weeks and I'll probably be reading review books anyway because I'm so far behind.

  1. I usually read whatever's next on my list, but I think I'd take my Kindle so that I wouldn't be lugging books around!

  2. Oh man, I know what you mean about review books- I feel like I'll never catch up with my review stash! Even if I take TWO vacations and just read review books.

    Here's my btt! Vacation reading, and reading faster than my parents.

  3. good point about review books!

  4. Good point.

  5. I tend to read less on vacation. There's usually just so much to do. But if I am reading it tends to be just whatever's next on my list.

  6. I like something that is an easy read. I don't want to have to do to much thinking on vacation. I usually don't do much reading on vacation, because, we usually visit family and friends, to much talking to be reading.

  7. I don't take computer either which definitely adds to more reading time. Great point.

  8. Nope, they stay the same.

    Poor kitty ;)

  9. That's a good point about review books! It'd be like taking work with you.
