FIR '10: Reading Question #1

FIR is hosted by Katrina at Callapidderdays.

Every Tuesday this fall, Katrina will be posting a question about reading.

Today's question: What do you think is the biggest obstacle to your reading? What prevents you from reading as much as you’d like?

Well, my biggest obstacle tends to be the internet...I go on to check email, facebook, and the other great blogs out there and soon realize a hour or more has gone by...it's so easy to lose track of time reading everyone's latest post. I try to go on the computer first thing in the morning after I get back from the gym and sometimes find I have to limit myself to how long I can stay on. I find that sometimes I have to set aside time to read (not that that always works!)...case in point: my book club is meeting Thursday evening and I am only a quarter of the way into the book. I decided I would read for a few hours this morning before going out to run some errands, and then realized I needed to email someone something, then checked my blog and saw I had a few comments I wanted to respond to and then saw someone had posted this question, so I needed to put my response together, so needless to say I only got in an hour of reading...it's a vicious circle!

If I can only stay off the computer, I do tend to get a lot of reading done. I always have a book with me, so if I get stuck somewhere, I can just read a few pages. And, I always read at night before I go to sleep. 

What about you? What are your biggest obstacles in reading?


  1. I do that, too!
    Last night I put the spaghetti pot of water on to boil & went to check the kids homework list on the school's website - by the time I got back I had almost boiled all of the water from the pot! Ugh!! The kids thought that was so funny!!
    My answer to this week’s Fall Into Reading question is here: Hott Books - Fall Into Reading

  2. Totally agree...some days can't get off the computer.

  3. I am so the same when it comes to getting off the computer. I did read this morning for an hour and a half, but, now I'm back.
