So Many Books, So Little Time

Anyone else read a lot less as the weather gets nicer?

Maybe it's just because I'm in Minnesota and we only seem to have a few months of nice weather a year! I've been spending more time outside, and since it's lighter out longer, I feel like I can get more done in a day....and by the time I look at the clock, it's getting late and I missed out on a lot of reading time that I'd normally take advantage of!

I have a big stack of books from the library...and it's constantly big. As soon as a I finish a few, a few more than I put on hold are in. It's never-ending! Not that I'm complaining! It's nice to always have some reading options. But I'm definitely not finding as much time to read lately. Luckily some of the books I've been picking up are shorter, light reads - great for summer weather! So the number of books I'm reading might not actually be decreasing, but the number of total pages probably is!

Besides just the nicer weather, there are a lot more things going on this time of year. And my daughter is now walking (running!) around, so that keeps me quite busy. One nice thing is having my lunch hour at work to read. As long as I don't have to be running errands or going to any appointments!

So, my stack and my wish list continue to grow... and I'll read when I have the time!


  1. I have been spending more time reading lately! I have allergies, and this time of year it is difficult to be outside and not sneeze my head off. I have been staying inside with the A/C the past couple of weekends, and reading. My TBR pile is still huge, though. :)

  2. I read at night in bed. So the weather doesn't stop me! No matter what I read for an hour or so, and sometimes (not so good) I get carried away by the story and I don't get enough sleep.

  3. I do read before bed, and often lose track of time!

  4. pile never seems to get any smaller. I had to stop requesting books from the library until I get caught up. I do most of my reading on the train so the weather doesn't really affect my reading time.
