Making Up For Monday: Too Much Reading?

making up for monday

When people ask you why you read so much, what is your answer? 

Hmmm…that really hasn’t happened to me in a long time, years even. My friends and co-workers all know I do this blogging thing so it doesn’t come up. Thinking back tho, I believe my standard answer was something along the lines of…it’s my addiction. For some it’s substances, sex, music, video games, etc. Mine just happens to be books. You want me to dig deeper?

I like being transported to different places and times. I like being in other people’s heads, feeling their emotions. I like reliving first kisses, touches, sexy times…I like having endless new boyfriends that make me laugh, fascinate me, perplex me, and yes…even make me cry sometimes.

What about you? Do people ever ask you that, and if so, what do you say?

    Tammie I read about 3 to 4 books a week. I read before going to bed, sometimes til 2am. It is my hobby, my past time, I’m also retired so I can stay up as long as I want. Like you I love my book boyfriends. I love putting myself in the book that I’m reading. I do love when authors describe the scene with lots of details. I just finished reading A Second Chance At Paris by Cole McCade, not only is this book amazing, but when the scenes in Paris are described, I felt like I was there. I’m also a TV addict (only at night thou). So love my crime dramas. In case you’re thinking, geez she sounds like a slug, nope I’m like the energizer bunny during the day. I do love yor blog, it’s my favorite at Bookish Temptations.

    I live vicariously through my books. People who know me aren’t surprised to see me reading all of the time. 🙂

    My family and friends are used to seeing me with my IPAD in my hand. If I’m not reading, something is wrong. It gets on my husband’s nerves sometimes, but he is smart enough to know, it is a part of me. I have a very active imagination. My imagination needs “exercise”. That’s what reading is to me. Exercise for my active imagination. I love to get wrapped up in great characters, and face their challenges with them. When I finish a series, I sometimes feel like old friends have moved away. I get wrapped up in their lives. I have a very full life in “the real world”, but I love the people in my fantasy world too.


  4. I tell them that I don’t read too much, they read too little.
