1. Do you get to read as much as you WANT to read?
(I’m guessing #1 is an easy question for everyone?)
2. If you had (magically) more time to read–what would you read? Something educational? Classic? Comfort Reading? Escapism? Magazines?
I do get to read as much as I want. I read anywhere from two to six hours a day. Sometimes more if its for the 48 or 24 Hour Readathon. Or if its Cybils time. I'm fortunate in a way that I have time to read.
But just because I do have hours to spend each day doesn't mean that it's enough time to read all that I want to read. I will always want to read more books than I've got time for. I have thousands of books waiting to be read. Thousands. And while eight to ten books a week is good--really good in some ways--it can't go through that stack of books fast enough.
I want to have time to read everything--soon to be released ARCs, newly released books (2008), the 2007 books I didn't find time for last year, the handful of 2006 books that are still waiting to be read, the books from the library that I check out because I've read reviews of them elsewhere on blogs, the classics, the comfort reads that I want to get back to, the books I need to read because they fit a particular challenge, the Christian nonfiction that's on my shelves and has been on my shelves for more than several years--some books have been there waiting for four or more years. And I want to get to everything. But it all has to be done one book at a time, one day at a time.
