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.
