How to Enjoy a Fun Vacation on a Budget!
Does your job make you want to say, "Beam me up, Scotty?" Do you keep staring out your window, praying to see the Doctor's blue police box materializing on your front lawn to zip you away to new and old worlds? Would Chewbacca and Han Solo's faces appearing at your door be a welcome sight? Then you don't need a mere vacation. You need an extraordinary vacation!
"But I don't have much money!" I hear you saying. "I can't afford to leave my pressing responsibilities behind." But what if I told you that you could take that extraordinary vacation, it wouldn't cost you more than a few dollars, and you'd physically never leave the house?
You guessed it. Your get away from the mundane world, to spend hours of glorious fun in another world, awaits you in an exciting book. Once you find yourself in another world, on an adventure like no other, your mind will be far away from your day-to-day world. You will literally be on vacation for less than $10.
Your mental health may depend on reading fiction books.
Reading fiction has been shown to:
- Bring new experiences to your life, as if you'd visited the places described.
- Stimulate your brain with new experiences and information, reducing memory loss and promoting growth.
- Increases blood flow to the brain.
- Introduces us to a broader set of experiences.
- Provides a real relaxing and stress-reducing break from daily life, enabling you to tackle your responsibilities with renewed energy.
Do you want to get away on a small budget? Reading an enjoyable book will do the trick. But where to start? There are certainly a lot of great books and authors out there. But I know the books you'll find here will provide the entertaining vacation you're looking for.

Reality Game – Day 58
Mon, 03 Nov 2014
I’ve worked on the novel three days in a row. Thanks to getting an extra hour Sunday morning, and starting around 12:30 am on writing, in 5.5 hours I wrote 2265 words.
This morning, less time. Started writing at 3 am, and ended 3 hours later at 6 am. Wrote 1447 words in that time.
I also decided I might as well do NaNo officially, though I don’t know if I’ll hit the 50K mark or not. I know there are commitments that will get in the way. Like tonight, I’ll need to write a article for my Tuesday column at SpecFaith blog. That usually takes a good hunk of the night, so not sure if I’ll get any writing done on the novel. If I do, it won’t likely be enough to keep me caught up..
But at least at the moment I’m on track to make 50K. Since I type so slow now, I have to find around 5 hours a day on the novel, at least 4, to stay on track. We’ll see how it goes. For now, a decent start and the novel is progressing along though I’m still not sure where it is all going. Or how they are going to get out of the mess I’m putting them all in.
I asked for prayers for Natalie last time. Now all four of them need it. Jeremy, Mickey, Bridget and Natalie if you want to pray by name.
Here’s the summary:
Day 1: 444 words
Day 14: 456 words
Day 18: 687 words
Day 20: 1041 words
Day 33: 652 words
Day 56: 1162 words
Day 57: 2265 words
Day 58: 1447 words
Novel total: 9925 words
