Musing Monday: Reading Amount

Musing Mondays by: Should Be Reading


Would you say that you read about the same amount now as when you were younger? More? Less? Why?


I always read a lot as a kid.  I remember devouring all of the Harry Potter books in days at the age of like 13 or so.  I grew up reading – and writing as a matter of fact as my first “book” I wrote was when I was 7 or so – and it was something that would occupy many nights and lazy afternoons.

However, once I reached 18 or so, reading kind of fell on the back burner of my priorities.  It’s true that I had a lot of things going on in my life – graduating high school, moving from the States to Spain, starting a whole new life in a foreign country – but that’s no excuse for me to have stopped reading!  It wasn’t until this past summer that I started reading heavily again, maybe even as much as I did as a kid.  What went from maybe 3 books a year during the ages of 18-20 to now a book a week at the age of 21, I have definitely gotten back into the “reading zone”, and I’m extremely happy I have!

  1. Like you, I read and wrote from a young age. I remember deciding to “rewrite” Frankenstein when I was 7-y-o. I don’t remember how far I got, but I had an entire jotter filled with it and it wasn’t completed!

    Here’s my Musing Mondays post. 🙂

  2. I can not remember a time when I did not read and love reading! I have always been a reader and hopefully, always will be!

  3. I always loved books even as a kid, but I read much more now than I did when I was younger. 🙂

  5. Wow, you’ve been on quite an adventure moving out of the country! I don’t blame you for putting a hold on reading…
