A question much on my mind as I get ready to pack for vacation:

When you travel, how many books do you bring with you?
Has this changed since the arrival of ebooks?

  1. My first Booking Through Thursday is here Manga Maniac Cafe

  2. I usually pack about two more books than I could possibly finish during the span of time I’ll be gone, even if I read nonstop. I’m paranoid about running out of things to read and then being at the mercy of the airport bookstore.

  3. It depends on how long I’ll be away. Normally, I pack an average of 1 paperback per week. However, with ebooks and audio books available now, I did download quite a few public domain books as well.

  4. Good question!! My answer is here.

  5. Great timing because I just got back from vacation. Here is my answer on Rose City Reader.

  7. I think it’s my travel need that changes the format of my reading.
    My full answer is posted. Is it Friday yet?

  8. In the past I used to carry only one book for the outgoing flight but now I pack NONE! Before you tell me I’m not a real book addict consider this:
    I pack and deliberately leave a few kilos free so when I go on holidays I can find new libraries, new bookshop, new books at my holiday destination and use it as a reason to explore less touristy areas of the places I travel to. It much more fun that way.

  10. Late, but with no less love for BTT, here’s mine

  11. It used to be one, but now, oh bliss, I can have as many as I want on my ebook reader – even my own. giggle. In case I get nostalgic.
