Hey there--Just curious as to when you read? I used to read while Troy ate, but now he's too nosy and wants to grab my book or gets distracted when I turn the page. I read some when he naps, but am usually on the computer or getting other stuff done.

I am a SAHM and my kids are all in school so I can get reading done while they are gone. I also read at night from probably 8 oclock until midnight or later. Sometimes I get so close to finishing I just keep going all night because I can't put it down.

Bathtub for sure! When Layla naps or sometimes while she's quietly playing or playing with the boys I will read. Sometimes while I eat too! LOL And after they go to bed...it's hard to put a book down you're really into!

Usually during school breaks. I study non-stop and have no energy to read anything else when I am in school.

Oh, I love that. I can't do it often with two kids, but when I do it's my favorite time to read.

I just realized I've been reading the same book for about 3 weeks now
That's never happened to me before!

I read before I go to sleep it also helpls me to relax before I go to sleep, I also read to kill the time during the day when I don't feel like being on the computer, work is done and seems to make the day go by quicker.But as soon as I finish the book I am reading now I don't know what I will find to read to interest me.

I make an attempt to read while the girls are napping but that is when i do my house cleaning. I absolutely love to read...but who has the time anymore??
