This week Booking Through Thursday asks the following:
Do you bring the book(s) you’re reading with you when you go out? How? Physically, or in an e-reader of some kind? Have your habits in this regard changed?
I always have two or three (or more) books on the go at any one time, so it’s easy to have something to take with me when I go out. At one time I always kept a book of short stories in the car for any time I found myself waiting for someone or when I was the passenger. I seem to have gotten out of that habit somehow. However, I rarely go anywhere without anything to read. Generally I grab one of my current reads and, depending on its size, either stuff it in my backpack or put it in my pocket. I feel naked without having some kind of reading material with me. If I’m going on a longer trip I take my Kobo with me. It is so handy and I laugh now when I think of long trips with about 8 or 9 books crammed into my backpack, although I still travel with one or two ‘real’ books no matter what the journey is. I don’t think my habits have changed that much over the years, other than e-books having made it easier to travel with more reading material than was previously possible.
