Note To Self: Make Time To Read

Picked up a few books from the 2-for-PHP99 shelf to add to my growing pile of books I have yet to read. It’s such a shame that I never set aside time to just read (I started on The Time Traveler’s Wife last October and I’m only halfway through it!). Too many distractions like Cityville, trading cards/stamps, looking at boys in skinny ties, and other internet things.

How do you make time to read?

    I said in my blog the two criteria for which I base my decision on buying books in booksale are:

    1)witty book title and
    2)attractiveness of cover

    If you happen to find Kingston by Starlight, buy it. I kind of like how the writing is “superbly poetic” I need to check in on thesaurus by my side though Hahaha

    When I used to commute, I was able to finish a book a week! Now that I’m driving, I transitioned to listening to audiobooks. The experience is not the same, but at least it keeps me “reading” :D

    Same thing happens to me as well. I have a stack of unread books at the foot of my bed. Christmas break, though, means time to read them all!

    I read while eating breakfast, while doing #2 (ay gross ba?), while waiting for my laptop to boot up, while having my mani-pedi done, while having my makeup done during shoots, shows etc. :D and an hour before I go to sleep regardless of what time I actually lie down.

    But despite all that I still feel so under-read. *sigh* Books are such wonders.

    I have the same problem, i have tons of books to read but the internet is just so distracting. My books are mostly young adult novels, i want to read classics though. I find time to read when i drive mom somewhere and i would wait for a long time. But lately, i’ve been bringing my macbook to watch my series. :(
