This week’s Booking Through Thursday question is:
1. Do you get to read as much as you WANT to read?
(I’m guessing #1 is an easy question for everyone?)
2. If you had (magically) more time to read–what would you read? Something educational? Classic? Comfort Reading? Escapism? Magazines?
Oh yes, I definitely get enough time to read. I’ve got so much time to read, that I sometimes can’t find nary a book to read. It’s a tough life.
Actually, I have so LITTLE time to read, that I started taking the bus just so I could read more. I have so LITTLE time to read, that for my birthday, I told my husband all I wanted to do was be able to sit around the house and read. I have so LITTLE time to read that I’ve taken to reading while I walk, just to get in that few extra minutes.
If I magically had enough time to read, I’d tackle my TBR pile. It’s not necessarily educational or classic. This goes into WHY I read. I read for the stories. I read to learn more about myself, about human nature. I read to be entertained.
I’m wondering HOW MUCH time would be enough? Would five hours a day suffice? What if I was rich and could just sit around and read all day, while hired people took care of the cooking and cleaning? I like to think that I’d spend all day reading, but I don’t think that’s possible. I might spend 4-5 hours a day reading, but I probably wouldn’t spend all day reading, though it’s fun to fantasize about.
In a perfect world, how much time would you spend reading? Have you done anything to give yourself more time to read?
