Booking Through Thursday – Carry-ons

This week on Booking through Thursday:

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 know I carried books with me more when I was in school than I do now–I can’t read while I’m driving to work, after all.)

I think I carry books with me more now than I use to because for a long time, I couldn’t really read on moving vehicles. I still prefer not read when in transport be honest. Also, books are heavy. Even though I carry adequate bags, when I go out, it’s usually to go out, walk around, spend time socially, etc. Unless the book is a paperback, I don’t really want to carry it. I also seem to like big books. I am working at the moment so I bring my Kindle with me to work in the event things get super slow (like it was in the summer). I really like the ebook reader for that reason and it’s good to have it there just for the event that I’ll need to wait.

How about you?

      Hi Laurel! Indeed it is! I love that I can place dozens of books on there and it’s no space at all. I still prefer paper though, but no denying an ebook reader is handy! Thanks.

      Hi Tribute Books Mama! I got my Kindle in the event that I move again. I use to have to give up books for that reason, but not with the Kindle. Thanks! 🙂

      Hi Susan! Yes, I’ve read on planes too, but I do like watching movies on them slightly more. For some reason, I don’t really enjoy reading in transport as much. Backpacks are handy though! Thanks!

    I rarely go out without something to read just in case I end up in a queue or waiting for a long time. Now I have a kindle this is so much easier as I can carry a large choice of reading around with me, with very little weight!
