Mid way through the month of March I was complaining that I “never had time to read” now that I was an adult.
As a child and through my teenage years I was constantly devouring book after book at every waking moment. I remember Mum would often lament her own lack of reading time.
I thought the notion of “not having time to read” was unimaginable. And then… I grew up. Full time work, part time study, exercise, housework and more now fill my days, and like nearly every other privileged person on the planet I have a hideous Facebook addiction that consumes my spare moments.
I decided to commit myself to slowly replace my online time with quality reading time, and to conquer at least one book per month.
I have begun my challenge with The Queen’s Necklace by Alexandre Dumas, and although I didn’t complete it within the month as planned, the simple pleasure of once again making reading a regular habit is enough of a win for one day 🙂
