The next is a little more devious….a laptop bag:
Now obviously I need to fit my laptop and other paraphernalia in here as well, but there is still room for books…
Another handy spot is obviously luggage! This is my underwear bag:
(I took the underwear and pyjamas out so don’t know what colour undies I’m wearing :p) But as you can see…it still has some room for books:
Make sure to not overlook the obvious everyday places that you store your books:
I always have at least one book in my handbag when I am at home…so why not on holidays as well:
And last but not least…the secret smugglers mother load:
The travelling suitcase…we go away for a long time so I have two of these all padded out with books…it’s a good idea to pack them between your clothes…they act as a protective layer so the books don’t get destroyed. I took my clothes out for these photos though hehe.
Obviously now the gig is up, my family mostly knows that I smuggle books, but they also know I can pack around them so I have enough clothes as well, so they tolerate it but don’t necessarily like it…my bags can be a bit of an OHS hazard because they are so heavy.
Now you may be wondering how I could possibly read all of these books when I am away (I take about 50) well, I always say that you can never have too many books and I like having a choice about what I read so although I may not read all of them (this year not even half) I have a good selection, I can read pretty much anything that takes my fancy and I don’t buy books on holidays – anymore.
