I have all these good intentions to read the books I pick up here and there but so rarely get time, the computer is such a time suck lol. I'll come on it to do one job and think "I'll just check JM", "I'll just check FB", and before I know it (in between mummy jobs) the afternoon is gone lol.

I need to seriously start having one day a week absolutely off the computer.

How do the rest of you fit in time to read?

I now have EIGHT books to read in total and I'm not even counting my Celestine Prophecy study group reading.

lol well I keep a book in the bathroom. And I read in bed. I also read if I eat out, or while waiting for work to start.

I don't work, so that helps. I like to read when I can't sleep. Or when I'm feeling sad, which is often. I also like to take bubble baths and read.

Bubble baths and reading! Its part of my me time.

I keep a book and my kindle beside the bed and read 10 min minimum before bed. I'm also still woken up all night long and if I can't get back to sleep sometimes I'll read a chapter (not ideal but it helps).

I agree that computer time can really take away from my reading time. I like to read in the evenings or before bed, but lately I've been on the computer more, either on JM or doing online shopping for baby stuff, or work stuff. I do like to read in the tub.

I used to read on way to / before work started /on lunch breaks but obviously not working right now.

Most nights I am far, far too tired by bedtime. I have to have started and got hooked into a book well before bedtime to be able to read in bed, lol.

I always have one or other of the kids in my bath (or both). Michaela because she outgrew her baby bath ages ago but is not quite steady enough to sit in the bath by herself, and Daniel because otherwise he'd get jealous of Michaela. So I never get to read in the bathroom either!!
