Hello, and happy Wednesday! It’s been way too long since my last post, but I’ve been really busy. Since my last post, which was right at the beginning of June, I’ve had a lot going on. I had a band concert, a weekend of dance performances, and I finished the school year. I’m feeling really good about dance right now, since I left my old studio and am dancing other places now. It’s still a big difference though because of how long I was at my old studio for.
I’m also really happy that it’s summer, and that I’m done with school. I haven’t had much time for blogging or for my bookstagram though, which has been frustrating. I am hoping to get back to weekly blog posts for the next three weeks, and then after that, I’m going to try and post a few times a week, at least for the rest of summer. I also want to get back to my bookstagram, because I haven’t posted there in months, which is way too long. Tomorrow, if I have time, I’ll take some bookstagram pictures and get some stuff set up for the next couple weeks.
I’m going to also be on a trip for the next three weeks, so this past week’s LTB topic is very fitting: all about books on vacation! Although I know this post is very late, I’m still excited to talk all about bringing books on vacations!
Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly bookish meme created by Rukky @ Eternity Books and has been hosted by me since April of this year! Each Friday, there is a discussion topic for bloggers to write about. This past Friday’s topic was Books on Vacation (Fives @ Down the Rabbit Hole), and that’s what I’m going to be writing about today.
What books do you like to bring on vacation?
It really depends on what kind of book I’m in the mood for at the time. If I want to read lots of fantasy, or contemporary, or historical fiction… genre really just depends. I like to have a few different books of various genres though, so that I always have sometime I want to read. I usually download mostly audiobooks and ebooks in advance, because they don’t take up much space, and I can carry them around easily.
I usually bring more books than I end up reading, because I think that it’s better to have too many than to run out. I also always want to make sure that I have a few different genres of books with me, for whatever I feel like reading, and also so I don’t ever run out of books!
What kind of books do you think are good for a vacation?
I think that ebooks and audiobooks are really good for vacations because it’s easier to carry them around. I also think that it can be nice to bring more fast-paced and fun books, as opposed to longer and more serious ones, because at least for me, I like to be able to relax with a book if I’m reading on vacation.
How much time do you usually have to read on vacation?
It really depends. Sometimes, I’m able to spend a ton of time reading, sometimes I’m really busy and can’t. Usually, when I’m on trips with my family, I have some time to read in the mornings, since we’re usually less busy. I also like to read a lot while we’re driving, or on planes. I do get really carsick from reading while driving though, so I generally just stick to audiobooks for long car rides. So, in general, my main reading time while on vacation is either while I’m actively traveling, or in the mornings.
What does an ideal vacation with a book look like?
I’ve never really thought about what an ideal vacation with a book would look like before. I guess it would be really relaxing and calm, and I’d also have lots of time to myself. An ideal vacation with a book would also include lots of time to read in a comfy reading spot, like a cozy library, or a quiet garden.
Wrapping this up…
I love being able to read on vacation or trips, and I always make sure to bring lots of books (even if it’s sometimes too many books). I love being able to read on vacation, and it can be such a great way to cool down and to relax!
