Now for one more about books:

Booking Through Thursday

What are your reading habits? Do you tend to read at specific times during the day, or does it vary from day to day, hour to hour, minute to minute?

I read whenever I can (which isn't often enough): while I eat (I know, I know... you're not supposed to do that. Too bad.), while I cook dinner (reading and stirring are easy enough to do -- it's not like patting your head and rubbing your tummy), sitting in the TV room with DH while he channel flips (I HATE channel flipping -- really, how can a guy see if he likes something in only four seconds?), before bed. I wish I could set up a "regular" time to read. Maybe I'd get more of it done then!

Anyone care to join me?

Aw, to quote Kyra, "You're the sweetest I ever heard." You know, I'm not sure when I'm actually going to revise TBC. The thing is long; it has parts! Parts, I tell you!

But if I do, you'll be the first to know.

Reading & cooking? Haven't tried that. I've tried writing and cooking, running back between the cooktop and the computer, with catastrophic results for both endeavors. I'm more likely to do my reading in the bathroom while brushing my teeth.

I always read for a while before falling asleep. I seem to need that "down time" before my brain shuts down completely. I read while eating, but only if I have to eat alone for some reason. And, I've been known to read while cooking. I also keep a book with me in the car so if I have to wait for Bob or, if I'm alone, I have to wait at a railroad crossing.

Ooh, Rachel Caine. I'm still trying to catch up on her Weather Warden series.

(btw, seen the contest that writing aspirations and I are hosting? You might dig it!

Allie Boniface said...

I read before bed; it's my only downtime during the day.

And what's up with the hubby flipping channels thing? Mine is exactly the same way. But I can't read while he does it...too distracting!

If I read before I go to sleep then I dream about the book. That can be good; but it can be awful bad if I am reading Stephen King!

Julia said...

I'm waiting for "The Unfortunate Miss Fortunes" and "Agnes and the Hitman" too! When is it ever going to get here!

I am new with Karen Rose but I have the first two books of her in my TBR piles. Will be reading these soon, since I love romantic Suspense books a lot!

Happy Belated T13!
