So many!

Did you read most of these books during the first five months of this year? I'm trying to visualize exactly where in your day you fit this in, considering how much writing you do. 'Cause I'd like to read more than I currently do, and I'm hoping you have some observations on where in the day your reading goes. I'm a slow reader, mostly because I repeat great sentences / dialogues / descriptions out loud.

Re: So many!

Since there have been only five months so far this year, yes. *g*

I read whenever I c an--while waiting in line, on the treadmill, before bed, while waiting for my teapot to boil.

I used to read a lot more. :-P But I've slowed down a ton since I learned to edit.

Re: So many!

You've just opened worlds of possibilities! Although - reading out loud while standing in line may have to wait...
