Hi everybody and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday! Today we’re talking about things getting in the way of reading and while I don’t think my list is super original, it’s unfortunately true that all these things get in the way of my reading.
Luckily we have audiobooks that help us bookworms to read while doing lots of other stuff, like driving or chores or walking the dog. Otherwise this list would be way longer. But as it is, there are really only 5 things that I just can not do at the same time as reading, so here they are:
I like my job, but that’s at least eight hours a day that I can’t read! Imagine how many books I could read in those eight hours… but alas I need to work to earn book money.
I wish I was one of those people who didn’t need a lot of sleep. Hey, I’d settle for being someone who could sit down at night and read until I’m ready to go to bed. But alas – if I try to read after 8 or 9 pm, I’m one of those people that falls asleep on the sofa after reading exactly 2 pages.
Sometimes I feel more like binge watching a new show and while I do feel guilty sometimes, most of the time I’m okay with putting my books aside in favor of said show.
For some reason, friends and family do not appreciate when we’re together and I’m reading a book instead of following the conversation. I do not understand this at all, but I’ve learned to adapt to their strange ways…
I know, I know. I love my book blog and wouldn’t want to miss it for the world, but truth be told, I sometimes spend more time writing about books for my blog, than actually reading said books. Ah, the curse of the book blogger 😉
