Finding time to read

The perennial problem for any bookworm – just when can you find the time to read.

I know it’s something I struggle to do sometimes, I work full time, have 2 young children, a cat, all the usual household stuff and a husband that I like to talk to in the evening.

All of that leaves a lot less time for reading than I used to have. Still I manage to fit it in somehow as I’ve always loved reading and feel a bit lost without a book on the go.

I read at lunch time. I’m lucky to have a job where I get a proper lunch break and I make sure i tale it so I can sit and read.

I read while waiting for my youngest to fall asleep (he still likes someone to stay in his room while he drops off). Thanks to the kindle app on my phone this is a great time to catch up on some reading.

I read when I get in bed. I always try to read a few pages once I get in bed. Some night I read more than others but I find it helps me relax before sleep.

I read in the evenings (sometimes). Depending on the day we’ve had or what’s on TV sometimes I’ll read in the evening once we’re settled on the sofa.

I might not get loads of time to read but I try to make the most of what I have – when do you find time to read?

  1. We must have the same life because these are exactly the instances when I read as well! The only other moments I get are when I’m listening to audiobooks on the work commute.

  2. I have a full-time job (and sometimes it feels like two full-time jobs with blogging lol!) and I’m a bit of a workaholic so that’s what most of my reading time has to compete with. On most days I read once I get in bed but on really good days I start reading the minute I leave work! At a minimum it’s always reading a few pages before bed though and if not then I feel like my whole evening routine is thrown off 😂

  3. Since I’ve retired from the paying job and am a full-time book blogger, I read constantly. That is unless I’m at the grandkids events or driving. Between the iPad and my phone, I can carry my entire library with me now.
