Five ways to find time to read in your busy life
Finding time to read can be a little difficult sometimes. After all, we can get so caught up with defeating evil queens, slaying and/or befriending dragons or, you know, doing homework and stuff that we often find our To Be Read piles brushing the ceiling. But fear not! Here are five ways you can find time to read in your crazy lives.
1) While you eat breakfast. This one can be a little difficult if you eat while running out the door, but if you sit down for even five minutes to eat you can find yourself with an extra five minutes to read. That's an extra page or two every morning!
2) While you're on the run from psycho assassins/police. I understand, you've either been framed for a crime you didn't commit or your past has finally caught up with you. (We've all been there.) Life on the run can get a little hectic, but if you bring along a book to read, you can read while you hide underneath the bridge as you wait for the psycho assassins/police to leave.
3) While you commute. If you have to work ten or more minutes away from your house, it's a great chance to read something. Bring a book along on the bus, and if you're driving then bring an audiobook and play it over your speakers. (Please don't try to read and drive at the same time. I beg you.)
4) While slaying dragons. Obviously, please do not attempt to slay the dragon and read at the exact same time, because that, my friend, will end with you getting barbecued. However, slaying a dragon always seems to involve traveling long distances with a band of misfits and telling stories by the fire underneath the stars. Being a bookworm, I give you full permission to ignore said band of misfits and read by the fire instead of listening to their boring stories you've heard a million times. (You're welcome.)
5) During lunch breaks. I understand that eating and reading don't always mix (and I have ketchup stains on my books to prove it), but it's worth a shot. Like I've said before, ignore all the other people in your life and just read something, darn it! Hide in your school library or storage closet if you have to.
