New Book Blogger Hop

The question this time is the Book Blogger Hop topic for December 16-22 submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer, which is:

Are you a morning, afternoon, or nighttime reader?

Disclaimer:

These are my personal opinions. I do not expect anyone to agree with anything here, and in fact, I’m certain that many will disagree and/or even hate many of the things I’ve written below. Sorry about that, but you are always welcome to express your own opinions – be they contrary or comparable – in the comments section. So, with that out of the way… let the controversy begin!

What made me think about this topic?

As noted above, this is a Book Blogger Hop topic, and it was an original one! I mean, no one has ever asked me WHEN I like to read, just why, who, where, and what! Finally, a chance to answer the last W of the list.

My Thoughts…

The short answer is:

Y E S !!!

Now, the long answer:

I always read two books at a time. One on my Kindle, and one in print. Generally, that means that throughout the day I’ll be reading my Kindle book – either at home or whenever I go somewhere that I know I’ll have to wait for something, like an appointment. I’ll also take my Kindle with me when I know I’m going to be eating out on my own – just to keep myself company!

Now, I naturally have a hard time falling asleep. I’ve been told that reading backlit devices or looking at electronic screens can impair your ability to nod off. That’s why I don’t have a TV in my bedroom, and why I put my phone in the kitchen or my office, and never next to my bed. I also heard that reading before going to sleep can help your brain turn off of the daily pressures of life, and help you fall asleep faster. So, as soon as I get into my bed, I pick up my print book and read at least 20 pages. Most of the time, that means I have to keep myself awake to finish my allotted pages, but that’s fine with me. That said, there are a few authors who I’ve read where I had a hard time closing the book, even as my eyelids grew heavy (first, and foremost, I’m talking about YOU, Rachel Joyce. But there are others, I can assure you)!

So, when you ask me my favorite time of the day for reading, my answer has to be – all day, any time of the day, day or night (well, except when I’m sleeping)!

There you have it!

So… what about you?

What is your favorite time of the day for reading?

  1. To pick up an actual book or my Kindle it is usually evening. Mostly now I listen to books–on my drive to/fro work and at lunch time since I eat in my car like most of my co-workers. (There is nowhere else unless you want to stay in the office and eat in the tiny kitchen).

  2. Same! 🙌💯Any time of day is my fav time to read! Although….reading at night keeps me awake and I find myself reading into the 3-4 am hours! Listening to an audio book will lull me to sleep no matter what time of day I’m listening.
