When I was a child, you couldn’t pay me to pick up a book and actually read for enjoyment! But as an adult, I do like to sit down and relax with a book – when working at the daycare, I loved spending my hour-long lunches reading at the Starbucks down the street. It gave me a sense of space and quiet from the screaming babies and toddlers :p I was reading a book every two weeks almost!
Since I have started teaching, it can be hard to be inspired when I am home, especially because I am so exhausted. I just want to sit in front of the tv these days. I have tried to pick up a few books, and just don’t get sucked in. There was a book that I liked over winter break, but then I started doing it as an audiobook and I couldn’t go back to physically reading it 😮
HOWEVER! I am really into this book now called “Never world wake” – I couldn’t put it down last night, and was upset that I forgot to bring it to work to read on my lunch! I am glad that it might have just been the genre of book or maybe the timing of when I was reading that made my mind disinterested. I am hoping I can continue to read when I get home from work. I really want to sit and relax with a good story, but sometimes my brain just wants to stare ha.
