BTT: Time is of the Essence


1. Do you get to read as much as you WANT to read?

(I’m guessing #1 is an easy question for everyone?)

2. If you had (magically) more time to read–what would you read? Something educational? Classic? Comfort Reading? Escapism? Magazines?

Mitchell here. I’m answering this for Susan, who’s ignoring me and trying to get through the 500+ books piled up in her office. Something about wanting to be able to sit at her desk and look out the windows, not at a wall of books. I tried asking, but she gave me a look dirtier than the ones I’m famous for.

Use this link. See if anyone’s busy reading The Demo Tapes, or if they’re just wishing they had the time for it.

    No one has enough reading time, and we all could use more to read what we like. Happy BTT!

    Never enough time to read. Or write. Or play with the bunny.

    A better question for Mitchell would be whether there’s ever enough time for playing music, but there’s not much point in asking, since we all know the answer.

    My dream is to have 5 hours a day to read. (You can start cracking up now.) I don’t how this would ever be possible, unless I turned off the internet, wrote full-time, and did very little marketing, but… you know. it’s my dream.

    And I’d do more re-reading. Right now, I rarely re-read, because there are just so many books I want to read.

    Actually, Spy, I’m still laughing at Bunny’s question to Mitchell!

    I don’t reread much anymore, either. Bummer; I’ve read some books well worth revisiting.

    I always wish I had some time for reading! I’m so tired in the evenings these days that I just fall asleep!

    Hi just a friendly advice. You can redirect your website from your blogspot to your own domain so it is easy for your droppers to find your site. God bless!

    I’d had the redirect on, but my regulars were confused. And while you droppers are important, my regular readers are a more vocal and active part of my community. I’m surprised the ads are still directing you to the wrong blog, frankly.

    1.) Oh, hell, no.

    2.) I’d read more non-fiction (of the non-research variety), would actually be able to read my subscription to Shambala Sun, and would probably read more science fiction and fantasy than I do.
