My favorite thing about going on vacation is getting to read for pure pleasure.
No, that’s a lie. My favorite thing about vacation is having other people make food, serve it, and clean it up.
But my SECOND favorite thing is reading for pleasure. I even like the airplane flights now that my kids can amuse themselves (and so long as I’m sitting with my family) because I get to curl up and read for hours straight with no Internet bugging me to come play.
The thing I’ve finally learned–learned the hard way–is to take books I’ve already read and know I love and am ready to reread, instead of taking my chance on something new.
