With no camping or RV experience, author Sue Ann Jaffarian decided to chuck her life in Los Angeles for a life on the road in a van.

I mostly enjoyed this autobiography, the beginning was interesting as the reader learns the planning and preparation involved for living full time in a motor home. The first travels were also interesting, I found the middle of the book kind of just listed the places the author stayed, with the end of the book becoming interesting again.
I enjoyed learning about this independent lifestyle. ( )

How to describe I Sleep Around? Part primer on how to retire to a life on the road with tips and tricks to make the transition to fulltime traveler, part humorous travelogue and touching memoir. Sue Ann Jaffarian will help you keep your body, sanity, and snail mail healthy while on the road for long periods of time. She can help you chose an RV of the right size, the right amount of storage, and any other options you desire. She found "Novella", her Winnebago Travato 59K, to be just perfect for her new life as a nomadic writer. When I Sleep Around takes a break from RV instruction in the first quarter of the book, Jaffarian talks about the business of writing as a professional before circling back to RV repairs. The second half detailed the places she visited along her five-year journey.
As an aside, I found it interesting that she chose to switch to RV life before officially retiring from her job as a paralegal. Juggling both the planning for a life on the road and finishing up a career must have been exhausting and emotional.
The section on RVing during the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown was interesting for those of us who were housebound for that period.
Jaffarian makes the claim that travel changes you. I would have loved for her to expound on that. Tell me more about that metamorphosis. I am so curious! Another wish - I wish Jaffarian would have included a compiled list of all of the attractions she was able to take in along her journey. It would have been cool to have a directory of interesting places to visit. High on my list is the Tabasco factory. Pictures would have been cool, too. ( )

Sue Ann Jaffarian's memoir about life on the road in her RV after retirement left a little to be desired. An avid reader of memoirs and travel writing, this one left me feeling a bit bored. The first part of the book describes the author's motivation for wanting to travel in retirement and the nuts and bolts of how she came to find the perfect RV for life on the road. It would be a great resource for someone looking for advice on the lifestyle, but felt a little dry to me. The same can be said for the writing about her travels. While she gives a blow by blow for the many places she visited and does point out some great sites, it often felt too much like I list. "I went here. I saw this. It was fun. It was nice." It felt more like reading a letter than a well written book. I also didn't find the book very humorous. I like travel writing to be a little more descriptive and memories to be a little more reflective. This book would make great research for someone considering the RV or van life and wanting more practical information on what to expect. Overall it wasn't a bad book, but not what I was expecting.

received as early reviewer copy

I found this book quite disappointing. It's basically a travelogue about seeing the US in a van over a number of years, with scattered bits about a writer and her life and friends. The travel part was interesting, and some of the bits about writing were as well, but they were few and far between. And while the title says this is humorous, I couldn't really find the humor in it.
