Booking through Thursday - time is of the essence




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?

Well, this is certainly a timely question - my semester just ended (at midnight) so I actually have time to answer.

Does anyone get to read as much as they'd like? Of course my answer to this is a resounding no. I'd like to blame it only on school, work, and home responsibilities but the truth is, I'd very addicted to tv and the internet so that too cuts into my reading time. During the semester I do most of my reading on Saturdays, which is my Sabbath, so electronics are off limits. I actually have a bunch of holds at the library that I've timed for my semester break so hopefully I'll be able to get some reading in before the craziness starts up full force.

Well, I definitely wouldn't read anything educational. I read mostly modern fiction, sometimes an interesting nonfiction book I come across. I'm not really into chick lit so when I've been reading too many downers I throw in some suspense or mysteries to lighten it up.

If you'd like to participate in Booking through Thursday, post your answers on your blog, and leave a comment on the BTT Web site.

I find I would like to read more as well. I find that work and whether I am busy there has a big impact and when you add that to friends, family and hobbies there is a lot of competition for time. I like you have an internet addiction. Fortunately I have been able to cut the addiction to tv.

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

I can so identify with your TV addiction. Mine has been growing and growing in the past couple of years. I try to juggle both TV and reading but it's not easy to find time.

The longest reading slump I ever had was in college. I would read so much for my classes that I wouldn't even want to read anything for myself (although I must admit I was taking some lit classes, so I had my fill of fiction too). After I graduated I went on a reading binge where everything I read was fiction and fun.

I'm not that addicted to television, but I find I watch more due to my husband.
