Finding time to read

No time to read that stack of novels on your nightstand? Here's how I fit in a few pages here and there and usually get through a novel a week.
  • Take the book everywhere with you. You never know when you'll be waiting outside the preschool pick-up, at the doctor's office, or in line for McDonald's.
  • Read while you exercise. I actually have a hard time reading a novel while I exercise, but I do cruise through my magazines on the treadmill or spin bike.
  • Make reading your treat. Think of the extra time (not to mention the calories saved) if you read instead of baking or running to the store for a pint of Ben & Jerry's. At the end of a long day promise yourself that you can read a chapter of The Lost Symbol. You'll get so into the book you won't feel the deprivation of your taste buds (maybe).
  • Don't discount toilet time. Now I know this sounds gross, but no child is going to bother you in the bathroom. Well, they might try to bother you, but you've got the greatest excuse in the world.
  • Read during couple time. My honey can think I'm watching a football game with him while I read my latest Susan May Warren book. All I have to do is comment on every four to five plays. That's about as often as something exciting happens anyway.
Follow these tips and you'll not only get some reading time in, you'll also improve your multi-tasking skills.
