When I started blogging, I started devoting more and more of my free time to this new passion of mine. It effected my reading quite drastically.
I was reading one or two books per week before this. I am a person who likes to stick to known and familiar when choosing books to read. I try new authors when recommended to me by those who’s taste in reading is similar to mine.
I have read a few books from the writers of our blogging community too. Paula, Chris, Linda, and Mason are among them. Michnavs has a few poetry books published as well. I really enjoy these books.
I really enjoy a page-turner. A book you have to finish no mater how late it’s getting because you have to know what happens next.
Reading is such an engrossing activity. It takes you out of yourself and you forget your worries for a while. Right now I’m re-reading Agatha Christie, the complete works. Dr. Tanya recommend it to me. And though I’ve read these books at least two times each, I seem to have forgotten most of the stories.
So as I have reduced my posts per day, I’m finding more time to read. Turning pages way past my regular bedtime.
