Time is of the Essence says Booking Through Thursday, so I answer this question:
Do you get to read as much as you WANT to read? If you had (magically) more time to read–what would you read? Something educational? Classic? Comfort Reading? Escapism? Magazines?
Of course I\’d like to have more time for reading! If I did, I\’d probably read more serious non-fiction. I\’d probably read more classics. too. I used to read classics in high school when I spent my free time just buried in books. Since becoming a mother, I hardly know what free time is. Sadly, I\’ve found it difficult to get through any classical literature in the past few years. Like these failed attempts. I think it\’s just because reading those sorts of books, which are slower paced, have more complex plots and in-depth character studies, take a kind of leisurely concentration I don\’t have anymore. I find myself just getting frustrated, and loosing focus. Hopefully someday when life slows down I\’ll be able to get back into classics. I\’d like to.
And if I had even extra time on top of that, I\’d probably re-read all my favorites again, as well.
