Poll: How Do You Prepare for Reading on Vacation?

Book image via Chris MesslerSummer is the time of blockbusters, beaches, hot weather, and, most importantly, vacation! We've asked you in the past if you bring a physical book for you along with your e-reader when you fly for those awkward fifteen minutes when you can't use your e-reader on the plane, and we've given tips on how to organize your reader, and don't forget to see our monthly roundup of digital reissues (here's June and July!). Now, we want to know how do you prepare for vacations—do you download a lot of books to your reader, pack a separate bag for books, or just leave all electronics at home? Let us know in this week's poll!

I load my Kindle, but I always bring one paper book along Just In Case.

I bring my ereader and a couple of paper books. I need to read down my paper TBR pile and I never know what I'll be in the mood to read. I also bring audio books. I get motion sickness if I read in a car and I'm afraid to test it in a plane.

I too pack a backup paper book for the times I can't use my e-reader, and just in case there's a power outage.

I have everything at my fingertips on Kindle iPhone app. Also have Audible app for those times when I'm too tired to keep eyes open, but still too jazzed from travel to sleep. Scott Brick reading a DeMille book to me is the height of relaxation!

I don't have an ereader so I bring books. Usually I bring 8 for a week vacation but I'm flying this years, and have thus limited myself to 5 books. I have made lists and have carefully chosen the books I'm bringing. There's a mix of contemporary, historical, western, along with a book I've already read just to be sure I have something.
