Christmas Break – Can’t Read When Travel

Hi Everyone!

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas break recently. This year my family and I celebrated Christmas in Florida. This time we stay in Jacksonville. I like walking around St. Johns Towne Center. This mall is big and there are a lot of buildings under-construction. It expands a lot and looks more busy and crowded than when I was there years ago. During this trip, I have the opportunity to visit St. Simon Island. It’s my first time there and it’s such a pretty place. A little chilly to travel there in December so you will see my many layers of clothes in the pictures below! I missed the outing to St. Augustine the next day but I don’t mind because I have been there before. During this 6 days Christmas travel, I struggle to read between The French Girl by Lexie Elliott and Two Girls Down by Louisa Luna. They are both great books! Though, I realize it’s hard to enjoy the read when I can only read snippets of it because my attention is being demanded elsewhere. While at the mall, I took a moment to browse through Barnes and Noble. It’s amazing to see books on display and recognize that I have read them as ARCs. It’s times like this that I appreciate so much the opportunity to read and review and to have access to books that are sold in retail stores before the general consumers. I’m proud to be a book blogger πŸ™‚

I love walking out on the dock.

This tree is super cool. The branches hang low. Many people climb on them. I regret forgetting to take a picture of this tree. It’s enormous and it spreads out its branches like a flower blooming.

It was a cloudy morning on December 23rd when the sun tries to break free from the clouds.

How was your Christmas break? Can you read when you travel? My reading schedule is ruined every time I travelled, but travel in books is one thing, experiencing it all in real life is another thing and it shouldn’t be missed, at least a few times a year πŸ™‚

xoxo,
Jasmine

    Beautiful pictures, Jasmine! I too fail to find the time to read while traveling but I always try to make up for it when I get back πŸ™‚ I hope you do the same!
    And yeah, little things like getting inside a bookstore and finding old acquaintances of mine is what makes me proud to be a book blogger as well ❀
    Happy holidays!

    Looks like you had a truly terrific break. Beautiful pictures by the way, and of course before I forget: welcome back.
    Reading while travelling can be done, especially in a train or at night in the hotel. But on the other hand there are also a lot of things to distract you from reading, so that’s usually the problem 😊
