Random Question: Hardcopy or Kindle for plane travel?

I am off and traveling tomorrow! Can hardly wait and have so much to get done! I haven’t even finished packing yet, which is awful lol. But that does lead me to ask when you travel do you prefer to have a few hard copy books in your carry on or the good old electronic kindle these days?

I hope no one is having issues with accessing the site please let me know if if you are so I can contact the host. I believe it’s just my computer acting up so this one is from the phone.

Random Question: do you ever feel obligated to read a book because you have read something else by the author ?

I’ll answer more in depth when I have my computer sorted out. I know sometimes I do feel like I should try other work by and Author. I felt that way over liking the Twilight series but I really disliked The Host.

Two weeks and off I go to England….with a mini trip to Rome! I am just a little bit excited about this development. Just scooped this book purely based on the title…LOL i have to many books going at once right now but I look forward to finishing them up a little in their spot as it were if that makes sense lol.

Random Question: What do you think of required reading in school?

I recently watched a comment thread while browsing for slime shop work lol, where some kids were complaining about required reading. They said every book on the list was boring ect. I remember really enjoying required reading in school. Sure not every book was a hit but many of them really helped ignite my love of the written word. I just could not understand the huge dislike. Of course I am sure some of it stems from not wanting to be told what to read. I think required reading is important. You never know which kid may be sparked to not only be online but really love books by reading one of the classics. So what do you think?

Random Question: If you couldn’t read anymore what would you do?

I know that there are other-ways to read other then traditionally just reading the words, but I think most of us in the book blog world read rather traditionally. What do you think you would do if all of a sudden you couldn’t do that anymore? I know I would have a nice big meltdown to start. Then once I was done with that I would probably start working on trying to find more narrators and readers that I like for audio books. I would have to learn to be less fussy about that.

Random Question: Series or stand alone which do you prefer?

This was a random question a friend asked me the other day when he noticed I have been reading more series books lately. When I have time to read that is, I am still so bad right now about finding the balance in my schedule. Anyways, I don’t pick series books over others on purpose or what seems to be on purpose for me but I do seem to be reading more. I enjoy the feeling of spending time with old friends and stories. There is something uniquely special when you get to get to know characters over the course of a series, especially if it is a long series.
