Time is of the Essence

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.

  19. I like the snow. =)

    Here are my answers.

  20. My Post is up!

    Happy Thursday everyone! 🙂

  23. My “if I had more time” wishes found here.

  24. Great questions today. My answers are here.

  25. It’s a rainy day here in Fl today – a perfect day to stay in and read – if only I didn’t have to WORK! lol

    Here’s my respons:


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

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

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


  29. 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

  30. 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. 🙂

  31. fun questions. Mine is up .

  32. Here’s mine


    It’s only 10 o’clock Pacific Time and there’s already more than 80 answers!!!

  39. Of course I wish I had more time to read. And I would choose novels, or what SmilingSally calls the comfort reading.
