Honestly, if you asked me now when's the last time that I read a book in the morning, or just generally before lunch, I'd have to think long and hard ... oh wait, when I spent a day at a spa just recently I did read some pages in between going for a swim and munching on a carrot. Alright then, it wasn't a carrot, but I did swim. Six laps to be exact. I realize that doesn't sound like a lot, especially considering that I had to take a break after each lap, but seeing how I am averse to anything sportive it's really not too bad. Anyway.
I still remember how much fun it was to lazily stay in bed all day long, just reading. Grocery shopping and doing the laundry? The parent's job. And I think the best days were the ones after Christmas, when I had unwrapped my presents, you know, the book shaped ones, of which I always tried to catch a glimpse through the gift wrap (in most cases to no avail despite my bookish X-ray vision) to get an idea which books exactly I might be getting (obviously it was too hard to wait for the unwrapping ceremony once everything was put underneath the tree - I've never been know for my patience, really).
These days I read mostly in the evening, sometimes in the afternoon, pretty much depending on the rest of my schedule. Delving into a book right after breakfast? I wish. And how decadent this even sounds. Long story short, in the next few weeks I will try to squeeze in some quality reading time early in the day. A Saturday morning dedicated to reading translates into a Friday afternoon involved in such mundane tasks as stocking up on broccoli and toilet paper. Getting out the vacuum cleaner will be demoted to last task of the day on a Sunday evening. My neighbor's are gonna love that!
How about you? When do you read? And most importantly, did you get involved in some morning reading fun as a kid yourself? Please share!
