I am happy that I am back to reading like I used to, long ago. When I was single, my weekend nights were spent reading, I used to start a book at 9 and go on till 3 or 4 in the morning. Sunday noon if no plans were made, I would cosy up in my bed with a book. Fortnightly Saturday morning visit to the library was mandatory. Me and brother would get 2 books each, which would last for 2 weeks. If I finished my set earlier than him, I would sneak in his books without him knowing and be smug with the knowledge of who was the mystery killer
Zack has zero interest in reading. Actually no one in the family reads here. MIL peruses old regional languages, for recipes and home remedies. His cousins are in the same boat, give them a book, they would sleep on it, rather than try to read few pages. Non technical books, that is 🙄
Since the family has not had anyone sit quietly reading, they keep thinking as to how can one be so still and calm ( read it as not talking). Everyone in here is a talkative lot and they can’t be quiet for long, unless some engrossing stuff is playing out in the living room. Sunday evenings are quiet a scene. Everyone will be talking loudly, while I will be in my own world tucked with a book in a side. I am amidst them, but not with them. Such times would be rare though, if the kids have slept or they are engaged in playing.
Now why do I say that I am back to reading? Because I am able to devote one or two hours of dedicated reading time since a month or so. Once I am back from work, after cooking I get an hour or so, till Zack is home. Then after winding up for the night, I get another hour until he is done with fiddling with his smartphone or the laptop. I used to be really lazy earlier, to make some time for reading, but thanks to some engrossing books I have got my hands on, those are days of past. I have noted down some thrillers once my current lot is over, looking forward to get into some adventurous action reading too.
Currently I am reading Devotion of Suspect X and A Thousand Splendid Suns. Next up is Inferno.
Hope you had a lovely weekend lovelies. I had too 🙂
