TWR: Traveling While Reading

I don't know how other readers handle it, but traveling can be really stressful. It's not the transportation, the money, or the funky people that somehow manage to find that perfect spot upwind from me that I hate, but the act of choosing. Choosing which books I will and won't bring with me.

I agonize over it. No joke- what books I bring can be even more important than what clothes I pack and what makeup I bring, which is amazing considering how OCD I can be about that. For my most recent NY trip though I tried to take into account what I was doing and how long it would take me to do it, and I came up with the following 'perfect storm' of book goodness:

1. Nook 2. Savor the Danger by Lori Foster 3. Out of Control by Shannon McKenna 4. Hot Night by Shannon McKenna

Want to know how many of those I read? 


I flipped through a few tried and true Chase stories on the Nook, but the most of both bus trips was spent napping, watching the Southpark movie on my iPod, and playing around on FB with my new smart phone.

I'm not sure what this says about my time management skills.
