Today’s question:
Do you bring the book(s) you’re reading with you when you go out? How?
Physically, or in an e-reader of some kind? Have your habits in this
regard changed?

My answer:
For as long as I can remember, a book is in hand whenever I leave the house, except for one time when I didn’t and I learned a lesson.  It’s automatic, grab my pocketbook, keys and my current read be it either a print or EBook.  No matter where I am going, my book comes with me.  Even if it is a short errand.  All I can think about is “what if” situations and have no book with me!!  Example…I get a flat tire and have to wait for AAA, I need my book to read while I wait.  However, there was one time, earlier this year, when I wasn’t feeling well, called the doctor and was told to come right in. Rushing to get ready, I forgot to grab my book.  No problem, I would see the doc and then come straight home.  WRONG!!!  From the doctor’s office, I was rushed to the hospital.  I was more upset that I didn’t have my book, as I sat in the ER for hours, than for why I was there.   I learned my lesson.

What about you?  Is your book always with you?

  1. Ah, yes, the lesson learned: you never know when a short errand will turn into something else.

    Here’s MY BTT POST

  2. It depends on where I’m going – if it’s just up to the grocery store, the book stays home.

  3. I always bring a book with me even if I don’t think I will need one.

  4. If you’re going to be tied up for a period of time it’s good to have a book with you.

  5. I also always need a book with me and always feel so stupid when I forget my book because I was just sitting around for an hour without any use! So I full heartedly agree with you! 🙂

  6. Hi, Cheryl! [frantic waving] It’s me, the long-lost, hardly ever visiting Bev (darn these different blogging platforms). I also regret it every time I forget a book….I try very hard not to forget to have one on me at all times (especially since I have all those challenges to meet…Lol). My complete Answer.

  7. I almost never leave home without a book.

  8. I hate it when I forget to take a book with me to an appointment, because invariably that will be the time when I’m most likely to be delayed. My BTT:
