Should Be Reading. This week’s musing:
How often do you read a book, just because you’re in the mood to read it? Not because you’re obligated to for a book club, or a challenge, or for review.
The majority of my reading is done because I want to read the book. My 'obligation' reading was done in school. Do I belong to a book club? Yes. Do I read books for review and for book challenges? Yes and once again, yes. However, while these are situations I have indeed chosen to put myself into - I do not see them as a hinderance. These are just ways to further my love of reading and connect with others who share my passion for the written word. As I've said in the past - I don't know very many people in my face-to-face life who love to read the way I do. I am thankful for the opportunities to share the books I love and even express my opinion on the ones I don't like.
Reading - to me - is a joy and a privilege. If reading started to feel like a chore - I'd be very sad. And I'd change whatever was making it feel that way to me.
