My reading has slowed down dramatically this month. Now I’m working an 8:00-5:00 schedule until April 1. I typically leave my house at 7:00. Usually get home around 7:00.
Lots of lost free time. So I’m making a new goal for myself. My goal is to read at least five hours every weekend. Those five hours will supplement any time I find during the week. Hopefully this will enable me to continue reading as much as I can.
This isn’t my first full-time job, but it is by far my longest commute. It’s a sacrifice I’m willing to make for a salaried position.
Let’s hope my reading picks up soon!
What’s your biggest obstacle when it comes to reading?

I posted something just for people like you yesterday. So many people think that they are really busy, so I decided to write up a post about how to find more time during the day.
Hopefully it will help you!
I hate when people comment just to plug their blog. Don’t you?
I can’t say that I know what you mean
I like to read at bed time, unfortunately as soon as my head hits the pillow it’s lights out for me, lol.
I also read during break time at work, but when I’m reading an ebook that’s not really possible as much as I would like since ebooks and snowflakes don’t particularly mix well together *sigh*.
I have read just before going to sleep at night, but lately I’ve been falling asleep really early. I’ve been reading a magazine during break and lunch tines at work. I finished my last one in three days. I might start taking my Fire tablet to work to read on, but then I’d have to download books on Kindle.
There are plenty of free books out there for Kindle, some of them you might even enjoy, since I know you are picky with what you read.
I have links if you would like to see, or just visit Amazon and find their free books.
I think the only magazine I’ve read since mom passed is my union newsletter. She used to pass them on to me when she was done with them.
I just realized how wonderful laundromats are! lol I usually use them machines here in the apartment, but one of them is broken and I had 3 loads, so I loaded up the car, grabbed my phone and ebook and spent and enjoyable time outside in the sunshine reading while waiting for the machines to finish!
I have several free books downloaded. Usually Kindle First ones. But I’ve never actually read one. I don’t think I’ve ever been into a washateria.
