Literary Blog Hop for March


So the question is:
 How do you find time to read, what's your reading style and where do you think reading literature should rank in society's priorities? 


How do you find time to read:  hmm.  well, first off i live with another reader.  B probably reads more than i do.  Admittedly, he has 3 days off work each week and works IN A LIBRARY but he does play more video games than i do.  I think he gets by on less sleep.  


anyway, I say the above because it certainly makes it easier when i say i feel like reading instead of watching something on netflix he's totally ok with that.  He's ok with me reading while he's playing Mass Effect or watching soccer.  I don't ever feel like i'm doing something wrong, relationship-wise anyway, when i'm reading and i hope he feels the same!


Another thing: audio books.  Looking back over what i've read this year 5 of my 15 finished books were audio.  I figure i won't hold to 1/3 for the whole year but when you're commuting 30 mins each way 5 days a week, that ends up being a whole big bunch of reading time! 


What's your reading style:  kinda unsure of the question?  if you mean what type of books i read, fiction, non-fiction, ya, sci-fi, fantasy, mystery, classics, modern stuff.  If you mean where, sitting on the couch or lying in bed are frequent positions.


and Where do you think reading literature should rank in society's priorities?  high?  it is really good for you, see here or here or here.  While i enjoy movies and long form tv shows i wouldn't say i am more relaxed after where most reading does relax me.  Reading grows empathy and we as a world need more of it.
