Musing Mondays (BIG)Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about reading time…

Do you have a set reading time (before bed, perhaps)? Do you read more at night or during the day? Is there a day of the week, perhaps, that you set aside to catch up on reading?

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Musing Mondays post, or share your opinion in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks.

 

 

I know that most people read before they go to bed, but I try to avoid this as much as possible – unless I’m going to bed early specifically to read. I find that once I start reading I get so caught up in the story and keep “just one more page”-ing my way through a good chunk of the book. It’s not good for my sleep.

Because of this, I do tend to read much more during the day and usually read for an hour or two of a morning*. I do my cosy, flannel pyjama, wrapped up in a blanket reading of a morning instead of night. This has an added bonus in our house, as everyone tends to be late risers – nice quiet reading time!

I also do a lot of reading throughout the day on a Sunday because of it being my library day. I usually come home with a new stack of books and settle down in the comfy chair for awhile.

 

*Of course, these days I’m not getting up early like I usually do, so my ‘morning’ are decidedly later, but oh well

I read anywhere man! but i try to have a chunk of reading time on Sundays. but it's Monday... Sunday is too far away

I read throughout the day, but at night in bed i usually listen to an audio book on my IPOD and set the sleep timer (usually shuts down in an hour). this works out well and is relaxing listening in the dark but not disturbing my husband either.

Here is my answer http://debbiesworld.wordpress.com/2009/06/07/musing-mondays-june-8/

I know what you mean about reading before bed. I love to do that but my daughter is an extremely early riser (around 5am) so that thought usually forces me to give up and go to bed.

Great question. My answer, all the time!

I like the early morning reading the best - especially on those rare occasions when it turns into all-day reading!

My response is posted.

When I worked a later shift, I read in the mornings, but now since I have to be up so early, there's no way I can fit it in. I'm not that much of an early bird. LOL
