When & Where Do You Read?

I rarely sit down for long periods of time to read.  A 'long time' for me would be 30 minutes.  I typically sit down for 10 minutes and then get up and do dishes or some other task, then sit and read again for a few more minutes before I am off doing something else.  This may come from the fact that, as a child, most of my reading was done while I walked home from school - I would take a few steps, stop and read, take a few more steps.  My mother always wondered why it took me so long to walk home those couple of blocks!

At night, I do enjoy curling up with my book in bed and reading for 10 or 20 minutes before I fall asleep.  I also get in a lot of reading on planes.  Recently, a girlfriend shared that she used to read ALL day from when she got up until she went to bed.  How decadent!  It is rare that I sit and read for much more than 10 or 15 minutes at one time.  How about you?  Comment below and let me know where you like to read and for how long.


  1. These days I read when I go to bed (unless I am watching videos). But it is usually around 1 hour or longer. I also read on the train, around 20 min every day.
    But, when growing up, my sisters and I used to read ALL THE TIME. I remember very clearly trying to set the table for dinner with one hand, while holding the book with the other one. My Mom used to get mad but she could not really blame anyone but herself! We got the addiction from her :) Claudia
