Booking Through Thursday is a weekly bookish meme about (mostly) books and reading.

When you travel, do you bring one book with you? Or a pile of them? Or do you use an e-reader to help carry the load?

(Because, even if you prefer paper, it can get heavy when you’re traveling!)

Before I had an e-reader, I always travelled with two or three books. I tried to pick paperbacks, because of the weight, but sometimes it just had to be a hardcover, because I was reading on a series at the moment, or something. My older sister was the same, and my parents also each had a book with them, so that never came up in an argument or anything.

Now what I have my Kindle, I usually just pack that, because it's convenient in weight and selection, even if it means leaving a print book I'm currently reading behind. I especially like that I no longer have to pick out what to read beforehand, because I have so many books stored on my Kindle. Moody reader that I am, now I can just open and start reading whatever it is a I want in that moment, on the beach or in the hotel. However, I kinda miss finding sand in between my pages, and a print book is a lot better to sleep on, coz the e-reader is so thin. x)
