In some of my posts, I’ve mentioned that I never get a chance to read as much as I would like. When I was younger, I would read non-stop.
My mother would holler at me in the middle of the night to turn off my nightlight and go to bed. (I’m still not entirely sure how I made enough noise reading to wake her up . . .)
Some summers, I was in as many as three different reading programs. We’d max out our library card limit every time we went. (Thankfully, we went to two libraries, so I could stock up.)
When we went on a trip, my books took up as much space as my suit case! A trip to the beach required no less than two tote bags of books. Now, I was younger and books were shorter, so that accounted for some of it, but I also was able to read in a moving vehicle for hours. (Don’t I wish I still had that skill!)
But in recent years . . .
There’s no time, and there is technology.
In the last two years, the last times I really remember reading were when we were at the cabin in January. No technology, and long mornings sitting on the deck reading.
It was so nice to get back into it, but as soon as we’re home, I stopped being able to find the time.
This past week I was down with the flu, and since I spent days in bed, I managed to read a little bit. I revisited one of my favorites – the Eragon trilogy. It’s a young adult series about a dragon and its rider saving the kingdom from an evil king.
Is it too late to make a New Year’s resolution? Here’s hoping that I manage to keep up with reading at least a little bit more this year!
