    All the Time

    All the time. I've actually recently bought another to books to digest in due time. I've finished one already and am well over half way in the other. I shall probably finish it by tomorrow, depending on whether I'm busy or not.

    All the Time...

    I read all the time. I Love cuddling up in bed, with a good book, and reading it, Sometimes when I log off of Ep, I don't really want to do anything, so I just reach over to my bookshelf, and grab a book to read. I Love to read, and tend to do a lot of it =)

    Mostly get books on CD though and listen in the car. When we go on trips I like to get long, interesting stories and the kids can just sit back and imagine they are there as the book plays through. I prefer it to the DVD player in the back seat as it allows their minds to create...

    When I Get Time

    It's hard to find time to read with things like TV and the internet to distract me, but I like to do it, so I try to make a little time to read each day, maybe just half an hour here or there. It's fun, and it helps me keep my spelling and vocabulary reasonable.
