Musing Mondays

Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about reading time…

Do you have a set reading time (before bed, perhaps)? Do you read more at night or during the day? Is there a day of the week, perhaps, that you set aside to catch up on reading?

I've made a commitment to myself to read every day. I try to read during my lunch hour if I can take the full hour. I also read 1-2 hours at night when I come home. I do like reading in bed, but lately I've been so tired, that when I get in bed to read, I'm asleep before I open my book! So instead I read sitting on my couch with my cats sleeping beside me.

I also listen to an audio book during my commute to and from work. This is the only time that I listen to audio books, so it takes me almost 3 weeks to finish one book.

Now that it's summer, my reading pattern has changed. I wake up early Saturday morning to run. Sometimes if I wake up before my alarm, I will read in bed until it's time for my run. After my run and shower, I read while eating breakfast. Now that my TV shows are on summer hiatus, I find myself reading about 3 hours each evening.

For the most part, I do most of my "catch up" reading on Sunday afternoons. Sundays are usually my lazy days. I come home from church, change clothes, eat breakfast and read outside on my deck.

What about you? What's your reading schedule?


  1. I can read any time but in summer vacations, I tend to read more!

    Mondays: Start of another week

  2. Good morning!

    It's first first time with this meme. :)

    Here's mine.

    Happy reading,


  3. I get myself in trouble sometimes by picking up a book at breakfast! Earlier this week I begin a book at 7:30 am and looked up and it was noon already!

  4. I think I spend most of my reading time in the commute; I like it since it helps to kill time and for me to catch up on my reading. Reading at home with two young kids can be challenging! ;)

  5. I was hoping when my TV shows went on summer hiatus I'd have more reading time, but I'm loving all the summer TV shows, too. LOL
