Musing Mondays (Nov 30)

Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about reading/blogging during the holidays…

How does your reading (or your blogging) fare in the holiday months? Do you read more or less? Do you have to actively make time to read?


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 don't know about the rest of you but come mid-October, my reading (and then my blogging) takes a definite nose-dive. Between Christmas shopping, holiday crafting, Christmas card making and sending, I don't have a whole lot of time left over. I find that I usually have two or three books that sit on my bedside right over Christmas, and my blog sits mostly untouched (sorry about that, by the way).
I do try to set aside some 'under-the-tree' reading time for my usual Christmas books, but aside from this, the months go so fast that it's over before I even realise they've begun.
What about the rest of you?

3rd time lucky to tell you about my cunning plan that is so cunning you could plug it in and light up the Christmas lights with it

Pretty much business as usual for me, book wise, during the upcoming Christmas season, as I explain in my post

My answer is here. I find that I actually may have MORE time to blog once it gets closer to the holidays. I have been focusing on school at the moment, so once the semester is over, I will certainly have more free time.

Matt said...

I think my (recent) birthday has more of an impact on my reading than any holiday does. So the answer to both blogging and reading will be "No."

My Musing is up. :)

For me, reading is difficult from the week of Thanksgiving through New Year's Day.
