Holiday Packing

Whenever I think of holiday packing, the thought uppermost in my mind is holiday reading. I have amassed a small light portable collection here.



Surely that little lot will fit into my suitcase?


Oh.

Perhaps if I...

Oh.
Hm. Surely I need clothes and things? Maybe I should rethink my books?

*quivers*


Ah sod it. Who needs anything else?!

Oh my gosh! You really need an e-reader. LOL.

It'll be okay though if you're planning to go to a nude beach, then all you'll need is the sunscreen.

Small?

Emy Shin said...

I love this post. All you need is books, really.

Patti Struble said...

Funny. I think you need a bigger bag.

So you encounter this packing quandary too! You just have to bring the books!

Wendy aka Quillfeather said...

I see you've got your priorities right!

Enjoy :)

I always haul a large canvas back with books, knitting and editing projects everywhere I go. I'm always afraid of being caught with nothing to do while on vacation!

Oh my goodness, she's gone without her evening shoes. Call the embassy, someone. And I peered and peered but couldn't see which Wodehouse. A Jeeves, but which? It's bothering me.

Oh wow!!!!!! What have you packed? Where are you going?? Can we all come along?!?!??!?! Wow!!!

Don't forget your flip-flops!!! :-)

And if you must only choose one book from your pile - I vote for Jackie Collins!!! She's guaranteed to keep you sizzling hot!! :-)

Take care and ENJOY your holiday!!!!!!!!

Have a great holidayyou must ask Santa for an E reader!

floweringmama said...

Oh my! Your idea of packing is just like mine!

Bearing in mind the weather we have at the moment, the sight of that bikini just makes me shiver.

Perhaps the answer is to construct a Lady Gaga-like dress MADE OF BOOKS! Then you can wear them on holiday and kill two birds with one stone. Just a thought...

Christine said...

Hope you have a wonderful time! Yes, you definitely need an e-reader.

There must be some sort of prize for someone who would pack the Writers' and Artists' Yearbook, 1920 in the same suitcase as a bikini. :-)

Hart Johnson said...

*giggles* Looks like maybe you are the target market for an e-reader. I usually take 2 books, but don't end up reading much (though I sometimes get some writing done)--I love to read, but I love to absorb an unusual place more.

I always take a few books with me on trips. Your suitcase looks awesome. =)

Falen (Sarah Ahiers) said...

Holly Ruggiero said...

I hear that!

Lia Bal said...

Get an e-reader for Christmas. I love mine, and I have now over 400 books on it. (That number just keeps growing and growing.)

Plain Jane said...

My suitcases disappeared after I got my Kindle. Now I only need a backpack. I was willing to carry the books, but now I am not willing to carry the clothes.

Rula Sinara said...

LOL! Kindle for Christmas, perhaps? Have a super holiday!

Talli Roland said...

Have a great holiday! See, this is why you need an ereader!

Melissa Sarno said...

That is hilarious! Love the photo show. Time for an e-reader...

The Words Crafter said...

LOL!!!!! Bigger suitcase!

Debs said...

Perfect packing. Hope you have a great time.
