Julie (YMaKAC) has been on vacation for the last couple of weeks, so it’s easy to see where her inspiration for this week’s question came from. *winks*
I am, however, in a less common circumstance, and that circumstance is that I don’t have a regular 9 – 5 job, or even an irregular, but 40(ish) hours a week job. When I work, I work from home, but, for now anyway, I’m fortunate enough to be left to my own devices.
This means that, NO, I do not read more on vacation. Vacations are usually the most structured part of my life (LOL), and if I tried to spend any significant amount of time reading while on vacay, my husband and/or my family would have my head. Same goes for blogging to a lesser extent.
I don’t resent them for that, b/c they also neglect their preferred social media platforms.
That being said, I do come from a family of readers, so if the vacation involves my side of the family, my sisters and I will find the occasional moment to spend reading with no threat of repercussions, and we fully take advantage of those moments. BUT all of those moments combined, definitely do not add up to more time than I usually spend reading. In fact, it’s not uncommon for me to totally crash out for a few days, and do nothing but read when I get home from a vacation.
I KNOW. I’m fully aware of how lucky I am. Please don’t hate me.
My name is Jessica and I live in Chattanooga, Tennessee. I’m trying my hand at writing, but mostly I read. My favorite genres are Fantasy, Paranormal Romance, Science Fiction, Urban Fantasy, and the YA versions of those genres, but if there is a book of a different color getting lots of buzz, I’ll read it too, just to be informed. If I’m not reading or writing, I’m probably on Goodreads or Pinterest or baking blueberry pies because I love them.
