Fall Into Reading Challenge 2010 Weekly Progress Report - October 28, 2010

10/28/2010 09:19:00 PM

I didn't realize that there were weekly questions until I visited another blog that is participating in this challenge!  Which kind of gives me a good excuse to see how far along I've come in the challenge each week!  To play "catch up" to the questions:

Question 1:  What is your biggest reading obstacle? OR, if you feel like you already read as much as you want to, what choices have you made to make that happen?

When I was working, the obstacle was that most of my weekday was taken up with work, and when I got home, I still had to help with homework, get food done, get clothes and whatnot ready for the next day, supervise bathtime, read the nightly bedtime story/devotional, try to catch up with my blog a bit, THEN find a small amount of time to read before bed!  NOW, though, since my Bebe Boy is in school during the day, and I'm not working, I get quite a bit of time to read!  Which is cool; I like it.

Question 2:   What about you? Do you read e-books?

I do, but not very much.  I don't have a reader, and I spend a lot of time in front of the computer screen, and I like to curl up on my couch with a book to read, so they get read quite a bit more slowly than other books.

Question 3:  Do you eat and/or drink while you’re reading? Or do you keep food and liquids far away from your books?

That's tricky. I often DO sip coffee or cocoa from a travel mug while reading, but since most of my books end up going out and about to others, I like to keep them looking nice (no dog-ears, no spills), so I generally won't eat while I'm reading if the food is something that will put sauce or anything on the pages.

Question 4:  What about you? Do your books have dog-eared pages or are they pristine due to your commitment to using bookmarks?

I answered this one above!  LOL!  I HATE dog-eared pages, and will use any random scrap of paper or a business card or whatever if I happen not to have a bookmark handy.  I also hate curving the spines of my paperbacks, so they are generally treated tenderly.

  1. I hate dog-ears too! I can't fold my pages, write in my books, or break the spines. My sister is the opposite, so I'm always nervous about lending her my books!


Comments make me feel all squishy happy inside, so drop a line if you see or read something interesting! PLEASE don't leave links to your blog or page unless the post you're replying to specifically asks you to leave a link!
Sorry that I had to re-enable word verification, but without it, there was far too much spam coming in - the only other option would have been to require only registered (Google, OpenID, etc.) comments, which might require you, the commenter, to go through even MORE steps just to comment!
