Musing Mondays is a weekly event hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. Each week MizB asks a book related question and bloggers answer with their thoughts about the given topic.
This week’s question:
Would you say that you read about the same amount now as when you were younger? More? Less? Why?
I definitely read more now than I did when I was younger. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve always loved reading. Especially as a teenager – I read much more than my friends and my classmates, but it was still a small amount compared to how much I read now. A couple of years ago I started to buy books that were written in English and that’s when I became a full time bookworm. English is not my first language so it was a great way to practice my language skills as well and it was such a nice feeling that I actually understood what I read. So English books started to grow on me and there came a time when I stopped reading Hungarian books altogether. At the same time, I started to read a lot. I’m sure it has something to do with the fact that I read in a foreigh language which makes it even more fun.
Anyway, I read a lot now – I like to pick up a book whenever I’m not on my computer and since I’m a night owl, I usually curl up in bed with a hot cuppa and stay up late, reading a good book. Now that I joined Goodreads and I have a blog, I never run out of books, and even if I don’t have much time to read due to other commitments, I still tend to finish a book each week.
