How to choose best reads with engaging plot for your holiday
The process of choosing
Choosing the best read for a holiday might as well happen to be the easiest thing to do, but at the same time, it could be the hardest. Some people that do not take the choosing process seriously end up not reading on holiday at all. They merely pick a book from the list they had already started approximately a year ago, and them they keep postponing the read until the trip is over. The most proper thing to do would appear to plan ahead and choose a reading of liking by keeping the suspense of getting into the plot for the time when there is plenty of leisure. Yes, some people are merely too lazy to read on holiday, because they could be engaged in an intellectual area of work, or writing college essay papers, where at a certain point reading stops to bring as much fun as it used to. For this reason, there is a need to pick something catchy with an engaging plot, so it would serve as brain food, but also as a way of relaxing and spending time with quality.
How to not forget about the book you took on a holiday
Yes, most people end up with not only one book that they take on holiday, but a whole library of books, which later they find to exhausting to read. Indeed, sometimes there are just too many things that come up on a holiday that seems to be more fun than reading some books they could read any other time. However, there may not even be some other time. Otherwise, people would not have a pile of books they never read but take with them on a trip and back without even opening a single page.
The process of reading
Reading must always be referred to as a process of engagement, mental stimulation, and physical rest. At the given point, planning a reading list ahead is one of the processes that should be included in things that people do when planning to go on a holiday.
How does one pick that exact book
Everybody should have a list of books that are planned to be read in the future. Some have the list of reads that their friends have suggested; some manage to compose that list from their personal research. Anyhows, the point is that there is a list of readings that everyone always has prepared. Evidently, the first thing to refer to when having a list of reads is the list itself.
Where to find a list
It might as well not represent much of an effort to refer to the list in order to pick a reading of liking and take it with you on holiday. But people who do not have that list of reads might as well go to a supermarket and pick any read from a shelf. Yet, people who buy the book at supermarkets evidently do not take the holiday reading process seriously, so it does not represent much of an effort to actually get into the reading of that book that they have picked at a supermarket.
Constructing the list itself
It would certainly appear to be useful to have a certain list prepared for you, along with particular recommendations for people who are looking for something special to read on holiday. Accordingly, there is a need for resources that would represent that guidance of reading for people looking for books to take on a trip with them – for example, GoodReads.com.
The best choice is no choice
Services like Goodreads have those suggestions already prepared, as well as particular readings blogs, or social media pages do too. Still, there is a need to find the logic of constructing the list itself. The key criteria is certainly an engaging plot that would be mentally stimulating and altogether relaxing experience for people who want to be recharged on holiday. The services that present holiday reading lists, for the most part, do not have that criteria included, they rely on such qualities as popularity levels, selling rates, and an overall reputation of books being suggested by other people.
The short list
The list might as well be short, but be constructed of books that are not only in well-known general lists but in fact include criteria of having an engaging plot. Doctor Zhivago by Boris Pasternak, Death in Venice by Thomas Mann, The Three Musketeers by Alexander Dumas, On the Road by Jack Kerouak, Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, Ulysses by James Joyce, Animal Farm by George Orwell, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami, Swann’s Way (In Search of Lost Time, #1) by Marcel Proust, A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens and It by Stephen King might not as well be the easiest books to read on a holiday, but certainly do have engaging plot that would turn a regular vacation into an unforgettable holiday.
What to do with a ready-made list?
It is already having a list of books with an engaging plot, as the one listed above would mean having a need to choose one book from that list as a next step. Yes, those books that were drawn as the most suitable reading materials for a holiday are in fact a choice of a person who prefers to engage in a stimulative intellectual work, so that massive texts that have philosophical meaning are in fact a perfect choice for a holiday. Some of those works are in fact considered to be parts of mass culture, but at the time being were initially referred to as intellectual’s literature. Evidently, those books are a perfect choice if a person does, in fact, seek intellectual stimulation while on a trip. Choosing Three Musketeers or Animal Farm would serve as a choice of benefit for one not to get too overloaded intellectually, but at the same time spend some intellectual quality time.
How not to forget about a book you took on a vacation
Even by starting to read the first couple of pages, a person could merely forget about a book that was taken on a holiday in a few days. Yes, the reading might as well happen to be too exhausting, or one could find it boring to have read as the only quality activity during the trip. Thus a person sets a book aside and starts doing other things that bring more pleasure. It does not bring a negative outcome, because holidays are about rest and intellectual relaxation. However too much of relaxation might lead to unfortunate ramifications, so it must always be balanced by a proper intellectual stimulation, which one could reach having read at list a couple of pages during every day away.
