Booking Through Thursday - Time is of the Essence

btt button

1. Do you get to read as much as you WANT to read? (I’m guessing #1 is an easy question for everyone?)

No, I do not. However, I make time for reading anyway. I almost always read while I eat. (I can hear the gasps of horror now!) And sometimes I read far into the night.

2. If you had (magically) more time to read–what would you read? Something educational? Classic? Comfort Reading? Escapism? Magazines?

If I had more time to read, I'd read everything and anything. Staring at my bedroom bookshelf, I said to my husband the other night, "I don't ever think I'll get to read all those books!" I do make time for reading 60-100 books a year, plus magazines, but I could easily read twice that many and still never read everything I'd like to read. I'm getting more selective, now that I realize my time for reading is inevitably limited.

No one has enough reading time, and we all could use more to read what we like. Happy BTT!

I do not read near enough. I've barely started that book you gave me. I get in a mode where I cannot put something down, and then realize that the house, laundry and kids are a disaster. I take time to catch up and start the cycle all over again. I can't even stay awake at night to read. If there were only 72 hours in a day I might get some stuff done that I(selfish little me)want to.

I would also read a variety of books. I think I have limited myself in the past and after reading "The Other Boelyn Girl" I've decided to expand my horizons!!(with your help, of course!)
