My family hosted Thanksgiving this year, and we’re getting ready for a quick/mini-vacation; so I’ve been really busy. I haven’t had much time to read. After seeing Carmel’s (over at Rabid Reads) Weekly Question, (What would you do if you were not allowed to read for a WHOLE week?) I realized that it has been at least a WHOLE week since I read a book!!!!! Seriously!! No wonder I’m starting to get a little cranky and impatient – I’m having withdrawals!!
Reading keeps me sane, and it’s my escape. It’s also my entertainment, my hobby, etc. So, not reading for a WHOLE week gives me withdrawals. I can’t imagine going any longer than that without reading. Also, I can’t remember the longest I’ve ever gone without reading since becoming a busy bookworm in the last few years. I did a quick skim over my Goodreads progress for this year, and it seems a week is my longest. A few years back, I didn’t read as much, but I didn’t have as much time either since I had toddlers. So, I’m sure I went longer between reads but reading wasn’t as important as it is now.
For my recent years of being a busy bookworm, a week is my longest gap between reads. What about you – how long have you gone without reading and why?
