This week BTT asks: "When you travel, how many books do you bring with you? Has this changed since the arrival of ebooks?"
Interesting questions. And timely ones, for me anyway, as I'm going to be doing some traveling in the near future.
I always take at least one or two books with me when I travel, even if it's just an overnight trip. Heaven forbid I should find myself with an extra ten minutes to kill without something to read! I generally take my current read (unless it's a library book – don't like to take those on trips) and a spare. Of course, the actual number of books I take along depends on the length of the trip – and also the means of travel (airplanes mean not so many books – one more good reason not to fly). And I also take fewer books along if I'm traveling to a place where I know there's a good bookstore or two.
So far, ebooks haven't really affected my reading to any great extent, either at home or while traveling. I don't own a Kindle or a Nook. And while I've downloaded a few texts onto my iPad, I haven't done much actual e-reading yet. I think that might change soon, though – I can definitely see the advantage of e-readers on long trips. Not taking along so many books means there's room in the suitcase to bring more books home with me!
