I really miss reading.  I used to read quite a lot, but since having children I don’t read at all.  Well, I do read quite a lot all the time, but I mean I never read an actual book.  I just never have the time to sit down and get my head stuck into a book.  Reading books on holidays was one of my favourite things to do before motherhood, and I look forward to the day I can do it again!

The only holiday I’ve been on with Ben abroad was our babymoon to Gran Canaria when I was six months pregnant with Bella.  I purchased three books from the airport to read on holiday and ended up reading nearly all of them on the flight there!  I’m quite a fast reader and a bit of a skimmer sometimes over boring parts!  I also can’t read just a little bit and then put a book down.  I have to know what’s going to happen next.  I’m too impatient to take my time reading a book and always read them in one go or a few chunks.  I can never read them over weeks and weeks like some people.

I’m hoping we can go on a family holiday abroad this year or definitely next year, but I don’t think reading will be on the agenda with a five year old and a two year old in tow.  Maybe I can sneak a read of a book in the car to the airport?  I look forward to the day I can lie on the beach reading a book in peace and quiet!

My sister reads loads of books.  We always used to read a lot when we were younger and would sneak our curtains open a little in the summer once we’d been put to bed, so we could sit up and read in bed!  We used to share a room so would both do this together.  She still reads loads and has even invested in a Kindle type thing.  I’ve never used one, but I assume it’s like an iPad only it’s purely for storing your favourite books and reading them electronically.

I quite like the idea of an e-reader as they must be so much more environmentally friendly, you know save the trees, etc.  But I do love an actual book.  There’s something so much more satisfying reading an actual book with text on paper and not on a glaring screen.

Holiday Gems have released an infographic listing the pros and cons of actual books compared to e-books which is quite interesting so I’ve pasted it here for you to see.  What side are you on; real physical in your hand paper books or an electronic device?  I’d love to know in the comments.

  125. Carol Thomas

    I like both e-readers and a traditional book. I would rather have a traditional book in hand as I feel you get a better feel of the story. However as much as I resisted e-readers in the beginning I came around to it and carry it in my bag with me. It is so much easier for when your out and about, away and travelling. I like comedy chick books, a good family drama and spiritual/self knowledge type books
