I love to read and although I have a busy schedule as a blogger and mom, I still try to find time to read at least one chapter of an eBook every day. I might read that chapter while waiting at an appointment, folding laundry, or waiting at the busstop but I try to make time every day because I enjoy reading and I learn through reading.
I’ve always loved reading, but there have been times in my life when I experienced a reading drought. I stopped reading because I felt like I didn’t have time to read. One of those reading droughts occurred when my second child was born and I had two boys under two years old. I thought I couldn’t read anything longer than a magazine article because I was too busy with my two boys (and with starting my blog). Looking back now I realize that I really did have the time but I just had a mental block against fitting it into my schedule.
Things are just as busy now, but in different ways, and eBooks are helping me sneak in my daily reading by making books more accessible to me. If I have my iPhone with me, I can read a few pages in an eBook using the Kindle for iPhone app. I no longer have to tote physical books around, I just have to tote devices which can access eBooks. Since I always use the free Kindle Apps, I can sync between all of my devices so I can always access my most recent bookmark. I’d rather curl up to an eBook in the evenings for entertainment than turn on the television.
If reading is important to you, you will make time for it (even if it’s only 15 minutes a day). I think it’s really important to keep reading as a life-long habit because there are so many benefits. I hope you’re enjoying the free eBooks I post and I encourage you to leave a comment to share why you read eBooks and how they are changing when you find time to read.
