What Do You Plan to Read Tomorrow?–Apparently It’s the Biggest Reading Day of the Year?

What Do You Plan to Read Tomorrow?–Apparently It’s the Biggest Reading Day of the Year?

According to a study commissioned by the huge bookseller Barnes & Noble, Thanksgiving Eve--which this year falls tomorrow, on Wednesday, November 22--is the busiest reading day of the year.

It's a very popular (and therefore stressful) travel day, and many people turn to books and periodicals to make traveling more pleasant.

My family usually celebrates Thanksgiving in New York City, so I don't have any travel-related reading time.

In general, though, I love to read on airplanes. I made a rule for myself: when I'm in transit, I don't work; I read for pleasure. This rule means that I get much more reading done, plus I enjoy traveling much more.

I can't read during car trips, however -- I get car-sick. Can you read while riding in a car?

If you're traveling tomorrow, do you plan to do some reading? What book or periodical are you taking?

If you'd like to see my one-pager on tips for getting more reading done, it's here.
