Booking Through Thursday: Travel

When you travel, how many books do you bring with you?
Has this changed since the arrival of ebooks?

This is a very timely question, as I’m traveling to Washington D.C. today!

It depends on the length of the trip and the length of the book. For this particular trip, I’m taking along The Rose of Martinique and Mansfield Park, both of which are just over four hundred pages long–I really don’t expect to finish both of them before Sunday, but I do expect to finish The Rose of Martinique on the flight. On average, though, I usually bring two or three dense books to last me through a trip.

Digital books have changed nothing for me in this regard. I don’t bring my laptop with me when I travel and I don’t have a digital reader, so there’s no way I can access the handful I do have.

  1. I’ll be interested to hear what you think of The Rose of Martinique. I tried to get it from the library a while back, after I’d finished (and loved) Sandra Gulland’s Josephine trilogy, but the library didn’t have it. Looked fascinating!

    Have a great trip! As much of a hassle as travel can be, I kind of enjoy being stuck in a seat with nothing to do but read. Hardly ever happens.
