Vacation Reading

I debated which book to bring with me. I carryon everything. Having worked for the airlines, you learn one thing: It isn’t what you are going to do if you lose your luggage, but what are you going to do when you lose your luggage.

I’ve traveled almost half way around the world, west and east. I’ve taken numerous trips with the U.S. I’m long overdue. Better safe than sorry. If I can’t fit it in my carryon case or my backpack, it doesn’t need to go.

I’d already determined I wouldn’t take my e-reader. I hate having it crash in the middle of a book, and I don’t have a charger separate from my computer.

The physical TBR (To-Be-Read) pile is… one shelf, stacked three deep; the third row is on the floor in front of the shelf. I’ve tried to reduce it, but as soon as it dwindles to only two deep, I’m antsy. Next thing you know, I’ve purchased several more paperbacks. I prefer paperbacks to hardbacks, unless it’s a book I simply cannot wait for in paperback.

Lucky for me, David Goggins’ book “Can’t Hurt Me” was released in paperback at the same time it was released in hardback. It isn’t a small book, but as I debated which book to take with me, I kept coming back to his. I’m not sorry.

I’m still reading it because he includes challenges at the end of each chapter, and I’m working on those.


  1. I also prefer paperbacks. They’re lighter and more comfortable to hold.

    • Exactly.
