Booking Through Thursday: Reading time


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?

Of course the answer to No. 1 is no. There are two things from the early school years I think need to be required in every workplace. One, of course, is nap time. The other is designated reading time. Not only would that give us readers a bit more time each day, it might even contribute to a more literate America.

With the magically added time, I’m guessing I would try to go back and read some of the so-called classics I’ve never read. I just never seem to make the time to go back to the books I really should read. I would consider reducing the “to be read” stacks but don’t want to hasten my demise.

The time to read is any time: no apparatus, no appointment of time and place, is necessary.

  • I agree! We need to have an established reading time built into our day!

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

  • Nap and reading time in the workplace – I wish. Interesting articles. Our tbr piles will either add to our life or diminish it. I’m the optimist with the glass half full theory. Reading brings value to our lives and extends it.
