Oh how I wish I lived a life of leisure where uninterrupted reading time was a regular thing. In that perfect world, I’d curl up on the couch with a warm blanket, a book, and some hot chocolate. I didn’t think I’d do very well at this month of reading (#NaNoReMo), with beta reading, and writing in full swing, but January flashed by and I’m happy to report my results.
Although I didn’t read any classics, and was gently chided by Mr. Wiswell for the transgression, I finished 4 novels, and started on a 5th. The biggest takeaway from this exercise for me: though I can’t find large chunks of time to read, I can still snatch a few minutes here and there. Short stories happen to be a good length for a lunch time read, and I’ve got several collections to work through. I’d prefer more time, but that’s not going to happen.
I can’t sustain January’s pace, but I will keep up with the daily reading, even if all I can manage is a few pages.
What are your reading habits? When do you find time to read?
