So many books, so little time – Frank Zappa
I love blogging and freelancing, I really do. But it takes a lot of time to do them both. And with the time that it takes me to blog,
play work on Twitter, facebook and Pinterest, I don’t have a whole lot of time to do the things I used to do. And I really, really miss reading.
I wrote a post titled I Heart Reading waaaaayyy back in April 2010 shortly after I first started blogging. Not only did I declare my love for reading, but I shared some of my favorite sites where I find books to read, purchase books for cheap, or even get books for free.
The post starts like this: If you know anything at all about me, then you know this: I LOVE TO READ.Couldn’t imagine life without it. For as long as I can remember, I’ve always loved to read. Even as a little girl, other kids would be out playing, and I’d be in my room reading.
I had forgotten how many books there are out there just waiting to be read. I look at my list of “To Read” books on goodreads.com, and I want to devour them all right now. Just shut down the computer and cozy up with a book. I love being able to to step out of my life and into somebody else’s; to put away my worries and cares and build a picture in my mind of somebody else’s life…what they look like, where they live, who they are. To experience somebody else’s sadness, love, or truth, if only just for just a few moments.
I really miss reading. I have three books I’m *trying* to read right now, but it’s hard to find the time. And when I do find the time, I can’t get my brain to slow down and relax. It continues to think about everything else that I should be or need to be doing, and won’t shut up! So even though I’m *trying* to read, my brain won’t let me do it.
Are you a bookworm too? Have you ever experienced a time when you couldn’t read? What did you do to fix it? Help me please!!!
