Musing Mondays, October 1, 2012

This week’s musing asks…
What distracts you when you really “should be reading”? ;) 

If it comes down to "should be reading" instead of "I get to read" then reading has become a job not a pleasure and I scale back on the books I agree to review  .  There are a lot of things that can interfere with my reading for pleasure.  Travel is a big one.  On the trip I just came back from my reading dropped to a very low level because I was out doing other fun things.  When I am home things like gardening (which is another of my loves) keep me from reading.  House work (which I don't love but have to do) will interfere.  Cooking (another of my loves) takes time away from reading. I have some favorite TV shows that distract (I do read during the commercials).  Time with friends also takes time away from reading.  Most of the things that interfere are good activities I do not want to give up.


  1. I agree with you about traveling, when we are away from home, I always carry books with me, but never seem to be able to read them. Always something else to do.
    Thanks for the visit today.

  2. Housework...what is that? It sounds vaguely familiar, but it never stops my reading! lol

  3. I can't read while the TV is on. Even during commercials. I wish I could.

  4. i wish travel would distract me from reading - but i don't go anywhere! lol

  5. I have some of the same distractions....and I agree that reading should not feel like work. I'm turning down more review books these days. If the book doesn't call to me, I'm turning away.
