I’m on vacation this week. I didn’t go anywhere exciting or exotic, I’m just not at work. Spending time puttering around the house, playing with the dog and … oh yeah. Reading. A lot.
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?
They change when I'm on vacation. I tend to read more and perhaps several books at one time if I don't find the light and fluffy read I'm looking for. When I'm on a nice vacation, I want a 'nice' read. Nothing too serious or confusing, no hardcore mysteries or "Real-Life I Have Issues" kind of a story. I want a simple mystery (Think, Laura Childs Tea Shop mysteries!) or something from my tween years like the Saddle Club.
A read where I don't have to think about it, I can just enjoy it and get lost in a good world where my vacation just feels a thousand times better.
