I recently went on an overseas trip and rather than dreading the 11 hour flight, followed by the 6 hour layover, followed by another 3 hour flight I was ECSTATIC because I knew I would be reading, reading, reading.
In order to prepare for my trip I thought long and hard about what kinds of books to bring to read on the plane and in what format. I brought one paperback I knew I could and would leave at the airport after I was done reading it, one hardback book that would require more concentration, my e-reader stocked with at least 6 choices from three different genres, and finally three new audiobooks to listen to on my ipod. Over the whole trip I read three books on my e-reader, one paperback, one hardback, and one audiobook. I enjoyed every single one.
What do you do when you prepare for a trip? Do you buy new books just for the trip, force yourself to read some of the things on your shelves, or do you chance it and buy a book at the airport before you board the plane?
