Booking Through Thursday: Carry-Ons



I've sadly neglected this blog lately, and it's been quite some time since I participated in Booking Through Thursday, so...there's no time like the present, right?

Here's today's question:

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.)

Short answer:  Yes.  Often.  I find myself in situations where I have to "wait' a lot, and if I have my current book with me, no worries.  Irritation at having to wait vanishes when I get caught up in the story.

I used to have a Kindle before I broke the screen, and I really miss it for that very reason.  You can't beat the portability!  I really wish I had an e-reader again...even though I love actual books and would never completely abandon them.

Oh, and I NEVER go on a car or plane trip without a good book!

It's good to be prepared for unexpected waiting.

Oh yes, getting on a plane without a book is something I've never done

I like a book when traveling.

Yes, I always bring a book with me! I have to wait almost every week night because of my son's Karate class and other afterschool activities. While waiting, I usually read from my Kindle, but, I still read paperbooks, too.

If I know I'm going to be in the doctor's office, then, I'll definitely bring a book!

As a matter of fact, when I forget my book, I get so angry with myself! So angry that I've started keeping spare books in my car to read if I ever forgot mine! I have so many paperbacks that it's easy to keep a few extra books in the car!

I am so grateful for the times when I've had to wait somewhere and my book is in my bag.

I never travel far without a book, either. My BTT:
