Things are gearing up as we near departure for our trip. I’m pretty much packed, but not at all sure if I have everything I need. (I’m guessing I have WAY too much.) There always comes a point where you stop caring and it becomes easier to just buy what is missing. (Hopefully nothing is missing, but you never know.) I think I’ve finally got the ‘right’ arrangement of books and games downloaded onto my iPad (you know, the important shit ;). I have one more coming in (Jeaniene Frost’s Eternal Kiss of Darkness) that I bought a few weeks ago. I think picking reading material for a trip is one of the hardest things to do. I never know what I’m going to be in the mood for at any given time and I like to have a variety of genres. Of course, it IS easier now that I’m not trying to pack paper books. I used to fill every cranny of a suitcase with books. Now I can just buy them and put them on my e-reader. Should be simple, but I’ve never been good at ‘choosing’ when it comes to books…as my dh can attest to. *g* I currently have 20 non-fiction works, covering everything from health to religion, 13 YA, 26 Urban Fantasies, 21 Paranormal Romances, 18 Historical Romances, 15 Contemporary Romances, and 25 Action/Adventure/Mystery. The latter category actually covers a lot of different types of books. Everything from The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown to Pattern Recognition by William Gibson. I know William Gibson is sci-fi, but I wasn’t sure how he’d been shelved. I was a little surprised by how many non-fiction books I have on my iPad, but I’m really looking forward to reading them. I have a lot of business books in the mix that apply to creative endeavors.
When you travel, how do you choose what to take?
