It’s no secret I love to read. I have loved to read since I learned 30+ years ago. For me it is not a question of if I will read, it is how I will find time to read?
I firmly believe that if you want to do something badly enough you will find a way to do it, within reason. No matter how badly I may want to play professional basketball (I don’t) I will never find a way to do it.
I have a lot of things I want to do in my free time, but when push comes to shove there are some things that I MAKE time for. This is how I know what my favorite past-times are – reading always, exercise sometimes.
Yes, I read 64 books, and I work full-time, have this blog, raise two children and find time to exercise. How do I do it all? Well, first of all, there are a lot of things I don’t do, and second I can’t stop myself from reading.
As my seven year old niece says, “I have the reading disease.”
It’s a disease I can’t get rid of, which is fine by me because I sort of love it. The only way to treat it is to read A LOT.
So if you too have the reading disease, but you are struggling to find time to “treat” the disease, I have some ideas you will want to try.
