Do you read more or less now than you did 5 years ago? 10 years ago? Or did you read more as a child?
I read more now than I did 5 or 10 years ago. According to my Goodreads stats, I’ve read almost twice what I read 5 years ago. I didn’t read much at all 10 years ago, since I had a toddler and another one on the way. I have a little more time now, plus my kids are older so they don’t need my constant supervision. Also, I make it a point to read more because reading keeps me sane, LOL! Seriously, for me, reading is a way of winding down & relaxing, especially for the night. And when things are too busy and too stressed, and I don’t have time to read much, I have withdrawals now!! I definitely read more than I did years ago.
I remember reading a lot as child, but I don’t remember exactly how much. It’s hard to hard to compare my childhood reading amount to now. I don’t think I read quite as much then, though. I definitely read more now than I did as a teen. Between school, homework, part time jobs, and spending time with friends and family, I didn’t have much free time for reading. I’d usually get bummed out by the school’s required reading, not as many fun books, LOL!!
So what about you – do you read more or less than before?
