I don't feel like there's not enough hours...I feel like I don't use the hours I have productively.

If you feel like its the board holding you back from reading (or really anything that makes you feel that way) you've got to set a certain time when you only check the board once a day and the rest of the day you can do something else.

Yeah, I often think that there are not enough hours in a day. But like Jen said, it's probably more like I do not use my time more productively.

I am definitely not reading as much as I used to. I had a bit of a reading burnout since I was "cramming" to finish my reading challenges last year. And since my little guy has stopped nursing I've lost reading time. I got a lot of reading done while I was nursing.

I wish I could read whilst nursing! Joseph wriggles about too much for me to hold a book, and tends to feed for 5 minutes at a time!

Since my youngest was born my reading time has just dissapeared! I feel like there is always some thing esle I should be doing. I try to make sure I have a nice long bath at least twice a week and I get lots of reading done then! (plus it's great me time!)

Oh, I used to get a lot of reading time while nursing. My boys were marathon nursers. Getting them down to bed could easily take an hour!

I think we all feel like that sometimes!

I don't so much right now, I have withdrawn for my studies for the year, so I'm feeling like I have a lot of spare time on my hands to read and write, hence my appearance on this board - it's all comparative really. I hope you get time to chill out, relax and clock up some reading time soon.

I definitely don't think there's enough time in my day- but like others, I probably don't use my hours productively or wisely. I have a hard time prioritizing.

I always get SOME reading done every single day because I read for bed, at LEAST 30 minutes.. it's what helps me sleep at night, relaxes me.

Nope, never enough time... ever!!! JM is addicting. I try to read while nursing. But, I can't do that with big hardbacks. When I really get into a book, reading is the only thing I do
