Reading While Away

whenever you go on vacation or a getaway you usually have a plan to relax and just enjoy your time away from the hustle and bustle of the world, right? But do you ever bring books with you to read while you’re away?

Reading can be a very relaxing way to unwind after a hectic day/week/month/year, and so when you go on vacation you might bring a book for the plane ride or for when you’re getting ready for bed.

But when you’re away do you ever just stop what you’re doing, sit down, and read? You don’t do what you were going to do and you decide to continue to block out the world farther by jumping into a new world with new, colorful characters and a plot so rich that you couldn’t stop even if you wanted to.

I think that’s something I want to explore more. To just get away from the world, the worries, the anxiety and just be.

“Books are a uniquely portable magic.” –Stephen King

If you are going away on vacation soon, what books do you plan on reading while you’re away, if any? What are your thoughts on reading while on vacation rather than doing some of the things you may have wanted to do before? Let me know!

  1. Usually when I go on holiday, it’s quite active so I don’t have a lot of time to sit down and read but there’s always the journey to read. I always bring my kindle along and if I’m reading a large book, I’ll bring that too 😛

  2. Absolutely, today is the first day of my holidays from work. We are not going away and have lots to be getting on with here, but I will certainly be taking lots of reading breaks. The book I have on the go now is by Caroline James, ‘Coffee, Tea, The Gypsy and Me’. I love the escapism of reading.
