Weekly Meme: Musing Mondays (August 8)

Okay, haven’t participated since last June, so jumping in this week! The weekly Musing Mondays question of the week (via the Should Be Reading blog) is:

If you were (are) going on vacation, what books would you take with you?


I’ve got an eInk eReader (the Amazon Kindle) so I would just throw that in my purse should I suddenly go on vacation (I wish!) Basically, I’ll have my entire library literally at the palm of my hand wherever I go, since I can have access to all my eBooks that are already on the eReader (and if I wished, any of the books I’ve ever bought in my archive, as long as I have access to WiFi). That convenience was one of my considerations when I made the investment to buy an eReader – I hated having to figure out which books to take with me or which books to leave behind in the hotel (in cases where I end up buying too many souveniers).

But in the interests of playing along, how about I’ll just mention here which books I’ve already got downloaded on my Kindle right now?

What about you, do you also have an eReader? Or what books will you be taking with you?

    Yes! I would not be able to take any books in print – for weight and damage! *pets Kindle* Good girl…

    I have a Nook, with a number of books on it, but it doesn’t really matter because I rarely read on vacation… 😉

    I pack light when I go a vacationing. Maybe two books, which will probably come home with me unread. I am to busy doing other things, and not much time for reading. And I am one of the people who does not have an e-reader yet, I have to many books on my bookshelves I haven’t read. I just can’t justify my buying one right now. Maybe if i ever quit buying books, than I will catch up with everyone else and buy an e-reader, but for now my paper books will have to do.

      Oh, definitely – if you’ve got bookshelves full of unread books right now, it doesn’t make much sense to go digital.

    Fun question! I would like to take one of the series that I want to get to but haven’t yet like City of Ashes, and Iron King… both series still unread by me.

      Oh, you’re not alone – I actually have those books too, but haven’t gotten around to reading them yet. Julie Kagawa just released another new book in her series right now (Iron Knight), so I’m thinking now would be a good time to finally read her series.

    Lots of great choices!

    Thanks for stopping by! I just read ebooks on my computer. I’ve only recently started reading them because authors have sent some to me. I think if I had a kindle it would be more convenient to read, but I don’t have to money for one! (: I hope you enjoy your new ebooks.

    Hello! Thanks for visiting my blog!

    Love Betty White! She gets funnier as she gets older, I think.

    I have a Nook and I love being able to toss my entire library in my purse. It’s the best thing ever 🙂
