Books, Travel Talk and Sanity
"I'm leaving on a jet plane..." That song may date me a wee bit. We are flying out of our hometown for 8 wonderful days in California. So excited.
But then a problem arose...
What books do I take? Do I take actual books? If so how many? Do I use my Kindle while I'm gone? I am traveling with my dh, daughter, son and his girlfriend. None of them are readers. (Blasphemy!!!) So when I pose the question to them they just stare at me like I have spoken some sort of foreign language. Books? Why? Because that's what I do. I read. I go to wonderful places with fascinating people. You four will just be sitting there. I will be experiencing life from another perspective.
I decided to take my current read.
I'm only on page 86 but it seems as if it is a light, easy read. Nothing real deep. I hope it is just that because I'm one of those travelers that listens to other peoples conversations. Nosey...perhaps. I prefer just observant.
I am convinced I will need several books, right?! Once again, they just stare. So I will take laptop with Kindle app. Not a big fan of ebooks. Just would rather have the actual physical book in my hand. Oh I know...I can just visit bookstores while I am there. Who cares if my fellow travelers don't understand? I know there are many of you out there in blogland that do understand. Let them stare! Let them question my sanity! We all know whose sanity is in question!!
