How do I read so much?

Someone commented on my April Reads post and asked how I could read so much. Well, the reasons are threefold (any one who watched Friends should find that amusing)…
1. I have no life. Well, I do, but right now I don’t have a car so I spend less time doing superfluous things in le car. I am much more organized in my errand running since I have to walk there.
2. I always have a book with me. Seriously it is a disease. I cannot not read. I will read cereal boxes if I don’t have a book with me so it is just easier to always have a book with me.
3. I suffer from insomnia. I’m a night owl anyway so once my kids are in bed I frolic in the land of book mania. I can get more read in 2 hours after dark than the same 2 hours when the kids are running around.
And that my friends is the secret to my madness…er…success.

    three more things (sticks fingers out of knothole in box)
    1. once my youngest became older than 5– my reading time increased DRAMATICALLY. When they were young I could NEVER have done it.
    2. reading for a reason (like a group or a challenge) drastically improves my chance to “find time” to read.
    3. I never realized how much time i spent waiting and doing nothing until i started carrying a book with me everywhere like you, Nat. I challenge everyone to try it.
    I know the question wasn’t asked OF me, but I wanted to share some of the things that have made a difference for me in my reading life too.

    Me too Nattie. I go nowhere without at least one book. There is a book (or 2 or 3…) by my bed and a book in my purse and a book by the sofa and books in my car….

    Thanks for answering you guys. I guess the trick is really having school age children. LOL. For now the challenges motivate me to find the time. I have Nattie to thank for that. She inspired me to do it.

    I try to always have a book with me, too. It is amazing how much reading you can do while waiting. You must also be a very fast reader, though. My goodness – over 19 books in a month. I’m so envious.
