BTT: Reading Time

Today’s Booking Through Thursday asks:

1. Do you get to read as much as you WANT to read?

The answer to this question, at this time of the year, is no. Unfortunately. I’m a freelancer in the publishing industry and fall and winter are my most busy times of the year. Come spring and summer, though, things get much less hectic. That’s when I find myself with ample time to read.

Despite a lack of time right now, last month I made a commitment to reading every day. It’s made a real difference to me, I’ve been finding. Somehow, that little bit of time to escape into a book eases away the stress of deadlines. Even if it’s only a chapter or two each day, it’s like magic.

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

Everything in my TBR pile. Which actually includes everything listed above.

    I usually read two hours over breakfast every morning, taking my time and sitting at the sunniest spot at my neighborhood coffee shop. (It’s San Francisco…everyone has their coffee at the cafes). Then I’ll slip in some reading time when no students come for office hour. I’ll read a bit more at home in the evening since I don’t watch much TV.
