How to read more
Plus, brunch for a crowd & the house from The Holiday
Last week, I got an email with a question. I love answering your questions and this one really made think, so I’m sharing it with all of you.
The question was: How do you find time to read so much in order to post so many great links? I have been an avid reader at many points in my life, and now I have to consciously make an effort to read a book. Do you have a set time every day or every week set aside to read? Do you bookmark things and set them aside to read later? Do you have specific sites that you check or newsletters that you always read? I guess I'm just curious about how you get your reading done and if you have some tactics that I could use to get back into the habit. If you are willing to share, I would appreciate it.
Since I hear that many of you use TNHS as a source of reading material (or procrastination, I won’t tell), I’m going to share my reading process here. I’d also love to hear from you about how you find time to read. Reading a lot is something I’ve always enjoyed and now it’s part of my work. I don’t have kids so I recognize I have more flexibility than most. Reading is not the only way to consume information—podcasts, audiobooks, tv shows, and movies are great. Some people find reading goals motivating, others find them discouraging. There is no right or wrong way to do this, but this is how I do it.
