When you travel, how many books do you bring with you?
Has this changed since the arrival of eBooks?
I love this question! No one in my family is shocked to see me arrive with at least 4-5 books plus the one I'm currently reading to hold me for a week-long visit. I've even taken 4-5 books with me on vacation! Clearly, I know that I'll never get around to reading ALL of them but I just feel safer knowing that I'm traveling with my own personal mini-library.
I guess this would make me an ideal candidate for eBooks but I have neither the money or the inclination to buy an eReader. I have a Kindle app on my iPod touch and that feels strange enough - it feels like I'm not reading a real book!
So, I will just continue to bless Southwest and their Two Bags Fly Free policy - a policy that's often resulted in a frantic check-in counter shifting of books from one bag to another to avoid going over the 50 pound mark!
