Musing Mondays {12-15-08}

Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about reading on the go…

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'm pretty much the same way. I almost always (95% of the time) bring a book with me. Even if I'm sure I won't get a chance to do any reading, I bring a book; just on the extreme off chance I get 2 minutes to crack it open. Unless my current book is a large hardcover, I bring my current read. I prefer to bring Mass Market Paperbacks, but I've been known to carry around a printed out e-book.

Yes, I've also taken the printed-out e-book with me from time to time. They're nice because you can fold them up small and fit them into a pocket or a fanny-pack (not fashionable, I know)!

If they ever come up with a single technology/format for ebooks, I'll probably cave and get a reader.

Books are very portable, would a kindle really be any better? Just more to mull over I guess.

I like seeing other people around and about with their books. I wish there were more of us.

To clarify: I wasn't talking about a Kindle or reader. I have both of the linked books in PDF and I printed them out instead of reading them on the computer.

I'm pretty much the same way. I learned the hard way how important it is to always make sure I take a book along when I go out, and so I even take one now when I know I won't have time to read.
