Musing Mondays (5)

Hello Readers,
This is my fourth week involved in the weekly blogging meme Musing Mondays, hosted by Should Be Reading. This week's musing asks:

Would you say that you read about the same amount now as when you were younger? More? Less? Why?

Considering I'm not really that old...difficult question to answer. :) In actuality, in junior high I'd read a book a day. Now if I were to do that I'd get fired and would fail my classes.

I don't have as much time to read, and so it takes some creativity to fit in reading. However, I read now more than I did in high school, because a) I started this blog and joined goodreads--meaning much more books are at my fingertips, and b) because I review books for a living and for this blog.

So my reading has fluctuated. Junior high a ton, high school, not that much, college more than high school, but not as much as junior high.

I've always loved reading, even in my childhood I loved it. Magic Treehouse, Nancy Drew, were my favorites in my early elementary years.

What about you? Do you guys read more or less now?

As always feel free to leave your link in the comments section.

  1. Beautiful page! Relevant to my free time, I read much more now than I did back in the day. But, more importantly, I read what I choose, and that makes all the difference.

  2. I meant "Relative" not "Relevant" but that's what happens when you are commenting and handing out candy at the same time. ;-)

  3. Thanks Tia, and yes I know how it goes giving out candy and trying to type...or even trying to type while doing nothing else can be diffictult.

    Thanks for your comment and leaving your link!
