When is your favorite time to read?
My favorite time to read a paperback or ebook is in the evening. When I’ve gotten everything else done that was necessary and I can fully relax. I don’t like to have things sitting on my mind while I’m trying to read. I feel guilty for not doing them. So if I wait until I have completed my tasks for the day and I can curl up and read to my heart’s content without responsibilities weighing me down.
If it is an audiobook, then my favorite time to listen is during my commute. I struggle with listening while I do other things if people are around. That makes the 45 minutes I drive each way to and from work the perfect time to get good, solid listening time in. It helps keep me from road rage and just makes me feel peaceful. The perfect timing.
I will still grab whatever second I can fit in if the opportunity arises, but the best times are when I can relax and really get into the book without interruptions or distractions.
When do you like to read? Do you have a favorite time or ritual before you get into your reading zone?
