When I’m in the zone (which can last for months, weeks, days or hours) I find that I read a ton of books. But when I am not in the zone, it is very hard for me to commit to the time I need in order to read what I really need to read for reviews. Right now I am not in the zone. I think it is due to the fact that the holidays are upon us and the social calendar is a little more full than usual. Because of that, when I am home, I just want to watch T.V. or surf the net.
If I found more time to read, which isn’t really hard for me to do but dedicating myself to the time is the sometimes the hard part, than I might not feel as overwhelmed by the reviewing venture I set out on this year. I am trying to remember to read for “fun” and not “requirement” every so often though. I have made it a habit of reading in bed before falling asleep as well as taking a book with me when I’m going out for the day just in case I have to wait for someone or get stuck in line somewhere.
What about you? Do you read as much as you would like? Do you feel like you need more time for reading in your day?
