Reading Time

My post is written in response to

With all of the distractions mentioned above, do you read books as much nowadays as you used to ten, twenty, or thirty years ago? Why or why not?

I don’t read as much as I used to, mainly because I am working full time, and when I do get home, I tend to write on my blog. By the time I have finished, I am too tired to read. I used to be able to read a book within a few days, but now it takes me a month to do the same task.

I love reading, and in essence, I am reading blogs, which isn’t the same as a novel, but at least I am reading. I love seeing other people’s inspiration from the same prompt I have written for.

I don’t really go on Facebook much, or Twitter. It is on my phone, but again writing on the blog takes precedence. I’m not writing on my novel as much as I would like. I tend to write for half an hour before I go to work. I can touch type, so I am fairly quick. I can write two thousand words if I put my mind to it.

The internet has a lot to answer for.

It is easy to get bogged down with other stuff, rather than reading, or writing for that matter. We can only do our best, and at least I am reading something, even if it isn’t a book.

  1. I think the older one gets the fussier and pickier one becomes. Finding new reading challenges becomes a challenge in itself. We tend to stick to what we know (or used to know). I for one have to force myself to tackle new authors and genres. It can be a delight or a disappointment.
