Have you ever met one of those people who read a book a week? Those annoyingly productive people who seem to have 100-hour-long days? I don’t know about you, but my days only last 24 hours, AND I spend a good chunk of that time sleeping! So, how do I make more time for books? Ah, now that’s a good question!
I usually read at night in bed, because apparently it helps you sleep better… (I must be doing it wrong then), but some nights I’m so exhausted I only read 1 chapter or, in extreme cases, nothing at all!
But since I’ve started this blog and a book-related business (check out our Facebook group!) I’ve made the effort to read EVERY night! Sometimes I even read during the day! (Oh, it’s shocking! I know!)
And you know how I do it? I pick a book I actually enjoy! Haha! It’s as simple as that! I used to think I absolutely HAD to finish a book I had already started… but not anymore! (I might be getting wiser with age!) Now, I only read what I want! So if I read the first 20 or 30 pages of a book and the story doesn’t grab my attention, that’s it, I’m done! I just put it back on the shelf (or sell it on ebay! :D).
Life is precious, guys and girls! Don’t waste your time!
Read something you actually like, and enjoy it!
Right now, I’m reading Delirium by Lauren Oliver and I’m LOVING it! If you like young adult books like the Divergent series, or The Hunger Games, and stories like that then this series is for you!
