I've found over the years that I read less during certain times of the year. For the most part the times of year that I've read less hasn't changed. Usually through Thanksgiving and Christmas I read much less, I have a hard time even picking up books. I find this odd due to the fact that as a general rule I tend to enjoy book related things as Christmas gifts....
I hate that during this season, which is suppose to be happy, I am usually slightly depressed, and a part of that is because I'm not reading. It's a vicious cycle.
I've been trying to figure this out for a while, and I blame a large portion of this cycle on the upcoming year. Right now I'm psyched about books that will be coming out soon, and about the challenges that I've decided to participate in. Another part of this whole problem would be that I'm excited about this season itself. I want to read, but I have so much other things on my mind. Working more, so that I can make enough money to deal with Christmas as well as the normal bills, looking forward to time off, but also torn between wanting to spend time with family and wanting to wrap up in my favorite blanket, Alice, and get a nice cup of hot coco and read my books.
I've noticed that we all have the same complaint, not enough time to read. This time of year is when it's most evident to me. What about my readers? Is this time of year hard for you when it comes to reading? Or are you able to find and make time to read? If you are able to do this, please give me tips!
