Reader Problems - Taking Books On Holiday

Tags: book

I was thinking about starting a new series of posts called 'Reader Problems'. I know it's not a very original concept as other people are already making similar content, but I think it will be fun for me to write, so... I'm doing it anyway.
As I'm currently on holiday (hoping I finish writing this on time), I thought it would be fun to discuss all the problems I faced when trying to decide what books to take with me.
I have narrowed it down to my top five things I needed to consider when selecting books to take away with me.

1. Limited luggage restrictions

This is my biggest dilemma I have to conquer when selecting my books. I never know how many to bring. If I only bring 3 or 4 then I have room for my clothes, but what if I read them all and have nothing else to read?? Another decision I need to make is what size books do I take? Hardback books are out of the question, there is no way I am wasting valuable space with them. Do I bring long books so they'll last longer or do I bring short books so I can fit more in my luggage???

2. I don't want to ruin the condition of my books

Any time a books travels anywhere, there is always the risk of it getting damaged. Because of this, I do not want to bring brand new books or special books. The problem with this is that I don't own many books in a bad condition as I am fussy and don't like buying a book in such a state. Even if I do find such books on my shelf, I still feel the need to wrap it up safely for the journey.

3. Mood reading - I might not want to read the genre of book I chose

Recently, I have turned into a complete mood reader. I stopped making TBRs and just accepted that I have no idea what I am going to read each month. This makes it even harder to choose books to take with me. Right now I might want to read fantasy, but what if I want to suddenly read historical fiction??

4. I might lose books

Travelling places comes with many risks. One of which is the risk of your luggage being lost. With this in mind I want to take all of my books in my hand luggage with me so they are under my protection, but it is an unrealistic plan. Also, what if I get held at knife point and they demand my books off me? My babies!!!

5. I need space if I want to buy new books

So I'm at the point where I have finally chosen all of my books I'm taking with me and I have started my journey. At the airport I have time to spare while I wait for my flight and the next thing I know I have bought some new books... how am I going to fit these in my luggage on my return journey????

In conclusion, the sensible option would be to just take my kindle with hundreds of different books on it... but where's the fun in that??
