Let's talk about: When do you read?

After getting married I have had a hard time finding time to read. Whether it be doing house chores or just wanting to spend time with the husband, I just can't find the time to sit down and read.

To make matters worst keeping a blog requires time. Although it does take up reading time to review and write posts, it also helps as motivation because I need to read in order to review. When I am tired it pushes me to pick up a book and read because I love informing my readers about new books. So, I am not complaining about my blog because I love being able to share my thoughts on books but it does take time and thus cuts into my reading time.

Last night I was wondering about how I could find more time to read. I usually do my reading in the morning as I am having my morning coffee or at night right before bed.

Here is my question for you beautiful readers.

How do you find time to read with your busy schedule?

Please comment below with your answers. I hope your comments help others like me that are having a hard time finding time to read.


  1. I do my best to always have a book with me, whether it be a physical book or my Nook. My husband is in graduate school, so I have a lot more time to read since he is preoccupied. Other than that, I read in waiting rooms, on buses, at cafes, while waiting for classes to begin, in bed before going to sleep, and sometimes even while taking a bath. When I do have the chance to read, I always do my best to finish whatever chapter I'm on. It makes me feel better when I don't have to stop in the middle of a scene, plus it helps me feel accomplished so that I'll keep going once I pick the book up again. I hope that helps. Good luck finding your reading time. :-)

  2. I don't have a lot of time to read either. I try to set aside an hour before bed and 2-3 hours on Saturdays or Sundays during football. That way the Hubby and I are doing things we love. I can read and sit in the room with a TV. Some people are bothered by the sound but I'm not. I also take long baths and read in the tub after a tough day.

  3. I am victorious I have found the comments! So yes - I do have way less reading time now that I'm married - however, since the man is a gaming addict and I'm a reading addict we've turned that into a sort of together/alone time. Very strange - but he gets to play and I sit there and read. I also read on all my breaks and lunches at work. I need to take every free minute I can since we plan to have a baby next year I know my reading time will soon become a rare and precious commodity!
