What I read on holiday has always been an unknown all my life. And since I am a fan of the paperbacks, I cannot swipe on a Kindle and choose from thousands of options. So I need to decide on just one or two books before going on vacation.
Whether we travel on a city break or we are going to lay under the sun for a whole week, there are few steps to help us in choosing the right lecture. This is the subject I would like to talk today. So let’s see 5 tips to choose the best travelling readings.
Reading about a local subject
One of the best things we can do is to read about the place we are going to spend our spare time. So it’s right to make sure the book truly reflects your location. For instance, if you are off to Italy, in breath-taking Tuscany, pack a book that shows the outstanding Italian atmosphere.
This way, you will enjoy better the place you are too. You can find a perfect book set in any location.
Choose a book to cool you off
Have you ever thought about reading a book that gives you goosebumps? But like literally. So picture that. You are on a beach, sweating because of the heat and tanning. On the second plan, there is the calming noise of the sea. And you are reading a book that happens in Alaska and all in the sudden, you can feel the touch of the snow.
Here are some examples of books that can chill you on a hot day.
Go for easy books
Nobody wants a very complicated action when the main activity is to rest and chill. For a lot of people, reading on a vacation is the equivalent of watching Friends on Netflix. So go for short stories, easy to read. A good comic book is light entertainment that you should never be ashamed of.
Let’s be honest, the holiday is for fun and relax.
Take your favourite author with you
Want to make sure you won’t fail when picking the holiday book? Then why not find the comfort and joy in the words of the author you mostly love?
For instance, if you love George RR Martin, go directly to his books.
Go to a library and analyze some titles that look attractive to you
Let’s be honest, how many times did we choose the books by their covers? When it comes to me, I did it many times. Last summer I had a nice surprise because the book I picked by its cover was a very pleasant one.
So whether you are going to get off to the coasts of Amalfi or enjoying a vacation in the Alps, never forget to take the most trustful companion: a pleasant book.
