GoodReads polled members on their summer reading habits. Although I wasn’t one of the whooping 95,000 who joined the poll, here’s my take on the Qs:
1. How many books do you bring on vacation?
If there’s a way to pack my library, I would. Although experience-wise, I won’t be able to do any reading on vacation, only during the long drive, so I’m limited to two books. But summer reading per se, I would voraciously read more than twenty books, across genre.
2. What type of books do you read on vacation?
I’m into hardbacks and paperbacks, and once in a while, I’ll throw in an e-book. Nevertheless, I’ll choose traditional book every time.
3. How long is your ideal vacation read?
Really? Ideally, if I can read longer than I can, and not concern myself with reality, it would be forever, forever, forever. (echoes)
4. What genres do you like to read on vacation?
I’m not specific in my reads, I mostly pick up books that I need to finish. or the ones thick enough to last long drives.
5. Where do you usually read during the summer?
Wow! I don’t remember where I am when I’m reading. But the basic answer would be in the bedroom, on the bed, with a tea. I also read in the kitchen while brewing whatever concoction I decided to feed my family, and on a chair, with coffee. I also read in the bathroom, past the time I’ve defe—–. I also read in the car, on a plane, in a party.
Come to think of it, I barely read in our mini-library/office, and seldom in the living room. I would never read while in a beach or a pool, or anywhere there’s water – kids first before books!
