I'm an avid reader. My mother introduced me to reading long before I could talk. I am also a wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, writer and housekeeper. So when do I have time to read just for fun? and Are you having trouble finding time to read just for fun?
Ask yourself these questions:
Can I read while waiting in line at the supermarket? While waiting to see the doctor or dentist?
My answer: I love reading while I'm at sonic. For me reading while I wait is great! I carry a book with me everywhere I go. I read while waiting in line with my groceries or at Walmart... I confess, I love their long lines, it gives me more time to read.
Can I go to bed an hour early and read? Or get up an hour earlier then the rest of my family and relax with a good book?
My answer: I try to go to bed early so that I can read. Beware, sometimes the book is so good I spend most of the night reading. I read in the morning too but that is Bible and Devotional reading. I love getting up earlier then everyone else and reading the wonderful stories in the Bible. They are amazing and true.
Is there one hour of the day that I can just relax and read?
My answer: Since I'm a stay at home writer, I will often sit down after lunch and just read for an hour. I have to set the kitchen timer or will end up there all afternoon :)
I hope this has helped you to see that you can get your reading time in. So go ahead... relax with a good book. I know I will.
