1. Do you get to read as much as you WANT to read?
Not only no, but h-e-double hockey sticks no. I’d love to stay home and read all day long. Or stay up all night and read. But I have to go to work so I can buy all the books that then sit around my house feeling neglected and unloved. It’s a vicious circle, I tell ya.
2. If you had (magically) more time to read–what would you read? Something educational? Classic? Comfort Reading? Escapism? Magazines?
I would read all of the above-mentioned neglected books. I can hear them calling my name when I’m asleep. Those are mostly fiction books published within the past 5 years, with some travel memoirs thrown in to make me dream about places I want to go. I always think I’d like to read Newsweek on a regular basis, but let’s be real. Given more time, I’d just pick up a book instead.
