Would you say that you read about the same amount now as when you were younger? More? Less?
Why?


Don’t forget to leave a link to your actual response (so people don’t have to go searching for it) in the comments—or if you prefer, leave your answers in the comments themselves!

(Sorry this is late, everyone. I could blame it on getting older, but really, I took Monday and Tuesday off for my birthday and then completely lost track of what day it was. Thankfully, I have questions in queue for just these kinds of emergencies! –Deb)


First of all, Happy Birthday to Deb!

I would say I read less. I would spend hours locked away in my bedroom reading, sometimes until 2 in the morning. Now, being a busy Mom, I squeeze it in when I can. There is so much too do!

There was a time in my late teens, early twenties when I didn't read at all. I was 'too busy'. HA! I wish I could go back and smack myself.

  1. Yes, I wish I would have appreciated a lot more things in my late teens and twenties! :-)

  2. Your response about your late teens/early twenties is similar to mine. I think I totally severed my ties with the "fun books" during those days. I was too busy with school and boys. lol! silly me!

    Pam- School and boys. Yep, that about covers it.

  4. Everyone seems to have been too busy to read in their late teens and early twenties. And here I was, thinking of myself as the only one whose reading has suffered in that time. ;)

  5. The amount of time I spend reading has changed as my life changes. I find that I read more now because I make it a priority... it's my escape and one of my favorite activities.

  6. I used to read late at night too, but not anymore. Now if I read after 11pm you can be sure i'll fall asleep on my book, after reading the same sentence a thousand times. And I am still in my twenties, that's a shame;o)

  7. I read so much more now, maybe because television no longer interests me. I wasted too much time on TV when I was younger.

  9. Being a mom definitely makes my life busier, but still I'm glad that I'm able to squeeze in some time for reading! :) It's my passion, and also an escape for me.

  11. Oh yes, I remember being so engrossed in a book that I read until dawn - that hasn't been possible for a long time - but I did come close with the Harry Potter books!

  12. The only time I took a break from reading books that I wanted to read was during University (though I usually resumed in the summer). Still, I definitely read more now.

  13. I think the way I read is different than it once was, but I'm not sure I read less. Maybe I do. I can't really say though because I didn't keep track of what I read until recently. I wish I had started journaling way back when . . . It would be interesting to see!

  17. I wish I could read more too when I was young. What's important now is that I'm catching up on lost time. :D

    Happy BTT, Chris!
