Day 18: Hit the Books!

Reading used to be one of my favourite things. I would literally have around four books going at all times when I was growing up, right until University. At that point life was just too busy to do something I enjoyed like reading a novel. After all, the reading I was assigned was often more than I could keep up with!

After I was done with University I thought I would have so much more time on my hands, even with starting a business. After all, how could anything take up as much time as all of those courses?! But even still I can't seem to find time to read. Last Christmas there were several books that I wanted to read, and between gifts and breaking down and buying them I had a small stack of great reading ahead of me.

I still have that same stack of books waiting to be read. Not cool. When I think about it, that stack of books wouldn't have taken me a month to read in High School.  I would have thought nothing of it! But somehow reading a "whole book" seems like such a daunting task to me now. I think it's about time that I got over the assumption that a whole book is just too much to get through, and just start reading for the fun of it again. Even if I don't end up with a finished product, or something usable, reading is still productive because it just makes me happy! And sometimes it's okay to have a little time to just selfishly, frivolously enjoy what you are doing. So I've decided I'm going to start reading again. Not because it will help my business in any way, or help us out in the long run at all, just because I want to know how Christmas at Tiffany's ends.
