Travel reading pleasure

What’s your favorite reading genre?

I’m a huge fan of thriller/suspense lawyer type books. A complete 360 from my chosen profession and my release. But I really only read for pleasure while on vacation mostly just because of being in the regular work grind.

And nobody knows, but growing up I didn’t enjoy reading and was typically in the slower reading groups. I just couldn’t read between the lines to guess the hidden meanings or theorize on what we think the author was really trying to say. My mind just didn’t work like that.

Since my passion is adventure travel, in the early 2000s, it was tough to justify packing a big paperback book when space was limited on backpacking trips specifically. When my parents bought me a kindle, it was the best and most practical gift I had ever received. And I still have that original device after all these years!

And I have to admit my neurosis that I don’t bend any corners or the spine…..ever! So electronic for me was definitely a win win.

And while everyone thinks that I’m on the go 24/7, I really do make time to totally chill out and get lost in a good book. I look forward to vacations so that I can dive into a release from the every day and have extra help leading into a much coveted deep sleep. 😴 📚

Love adventure travel, work hard & play hard, happy in both extremes - relaxing on a remote beach or rappelling down cliffs, take joy in simple things, love being on & near the water, visited 55 countries & 47 states so far in this crazy beautiful life! Goals by my 50th birthday - 50 states. 75 countries. 50 national parks. Be in Antarctica on my big day.
