Booking Through Thursday

A weekly meme about (mostly) books and reading.

Time is of the Essence December 11, 2008

Filed under: Wordpress — --Deb @ 1:12 am

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?


Don’t forget to leave a link to your actual response (so people don’t have to go searching for it) in the comments—or if you prefer, leave your answers in the comments themselves!

    I do not get to read as much as I would like to. I would like to read for several hours each day but I usually only get to read 30 minutes or less due to work and home obligations. I want to read more magazines, news reports, fiction, nonfiction, self help, a few romance books, and anything else that catches my attention.

    Great questions. Here’s my answer!

  31. ivyreisner Says:

    Here’s mine. http://kehinde.com/blog/?p=745 I think I need some kind of focus to my reading.

  32. Meghan Says:

    I’m up here – probably one of those rare ones who does actually have a fair amount of free time.

  33. Lisa Quing Says:

    Here’s mine. A reading challenge (888) has been very helpful to me in focusing my reading over the past year.

  34. Ruth Says:

    There will never be enough time for me to read all the books I want to read. Even if I never did anything else but read, there still wouldn’t be enough. Right now though, I’d settle for enough time to finish The Fairest Star by David Field. I’m almost to the end, and spending way more time reading than I should be because I just can’t put it down

  35. jessecreations Says:

    http://jessecreations.wordpress.com/2008/12/12/time-to-read/

    I think I have as much time to read as I do because there are at least a few days a week where I put reading and/or crocheting ahead of housework on my list of priorities. :)

  45. Shimmy Mom Says:

    Of course I wish I had more time to read. And I would choose novels, or what SmilingSally calls the comfort reading.
    I’m really into the classics right now. But I also like Christian books and historical fiction.
