I brought Love and Other Foreign Words by Erin McCahan along with me on my six-day vacation last week, hoping to read it during my downtime. It ended up staying in my suitcase for the whole trip.
Now don't get me wrong, I wasn't expecting to finish the entire book. But I thought I'd pick it up at least once or twice during waiting periods. (All my days ended up being stuffed with things to do!)
I realized this as I was unpacking and it left me thinking — do you make time to read even while you're on vacation? I love reading but I feel like if I'm somewhere new, I owe it to myself to explore as much of the area as I can and do things I can't do back at home. I wouldn't go as far as to say I wouldn't bother picking up a book, but I felt like I was too tired not only to read, but to keep my eyeballs open! (It was a struggle to even take a shower ...)
Do you bring books with you on vacation? I guess it also depends on who you go with (family, friends, etc.) I don't have much experience going with either friends or family, so I'm curious!
