I always like to have a book with me at all times – call it a nerdy grown-up security blanket – and rarely do I leave the house without slipping one into my bag (even if I KNOW I’m not going to have a chance to read it). Do you take a book with you? Do you take whatever book you’re currently reading, or do you have a special on-the-go book? And do you have a preference for
a these types of book (paperback, hardback; short stories; poetry etc)?
I have a book with me wherever I go. It’s more often that not the one that I am reading at the time. Sometimes I carry two if I think I am going to finish whatever it is that I am currently reading. I want to make sure that I can start something else. Having a book with me at all time has saved my sanity a lot of times. You just never know when you’re going to be stuck in a long line, in traffic or waiting for someone. Reading for just a few minutes here and there has upped my reading time and made me more patient in the face of a long line. At the post office, I laugh as people suck their teeth, roll their eyes and curse and carry on about how long and slow the line is. I am content just flipping the pages of my book.
