As June turned into July all of my friends were either on vacation or planning vacations. This year there will be no vacation for me. I’ve spent my wad making improvements to my house, so I’ll have to look at my reflection in the shiny new stainless appliances and imagine it’s my reflection in a pool of clear cool water.
However, the talk of vacations always has me wondering what people do when they are in transit (provided they’re not doing the driving) or at the hotel room either before beginning the day or ending it.
I read of course. In the olden days…like maybe 5 years ago (how long has Kindle been around anyway?) I packed a slew of books. Now I pack my Kindle. I used to teach and would save the summer for reading a hardback book because they were harder to lug everywhere. Now with the wonders of modern technology I can read on my Kindle and the print version of the book doesn’t matter.
What vacation book are you planning on reading? How many can you read while on vacation? Several years ago I was on a trip with just my oldest and I managed a book a day…haven’t quite managed that again! Since as I typed this it was the beginning of the 4th of July weekend I plan on starting my summer vacation reading with Bring Me Home for Christmas by Robyn Carr. (Yes, I was lucky enough to get an ARC!)
