We can’t imagine any booklover not packing one or more books for every vacation he/she ends up taking, but one type of vacation we’ve never heard of before is the “reading retreat,” where book-reading is the entire point of the vacation.
The reading retreat is apparently not even a new idea, according to a description of several of them recently posted to Salon. (Be sure to click on the links to related stories at the end of the article.)
Other than the expense involved, the acknowledged flaw in the idea of a reading retreat – at least if the retreat is located in or near a distraction-filled area – is that the lure of these distractions could very well sabotage the undisciplined booklover’s original plans.
Nevertheless, something to think – or at least fantasize – about!
