This week’s Musing Monday asks:
Other than working at a job, what is your biggest interruption to reading? What takes you away from your book(s)
Two easy answers to this: the Internet, and cycling.
I spend so much time on the Internet these days without even trying… Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest are my social networks of choice, then there’s everybody’s posts on Google Reader to get through, my own blog to write of course (actually, two of them), and then there’s always BBC News, Sydney Morning Herald, and general link-bait.
I do the vast majority of my reading on my commutes; I feel like I’m lazing about if I’m at home and reading (except weekends) – because I have a bit of a work addiction, home time is usually pretty hectic with chores and home admin. But when I chose to cycle rather than get the Tube, there goes my reading time!
