Musing Mondays-Time Enough to Read

Musing Mondays (BIG)Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about reading time…

Do you have a set reading time (before bed, perhaps)? Do you read more at night or during the day? Is there a day of the week, perhaps, that you set aside to catch up on reading?

I tend to read a lot in the afternoons and in particular on Mondays; over time for some reason I've set aside Monday afternoons as prime reading time. I have a second job as a volunteer librarian in a local synagogue (different from my other, paying job); when the library's quiet I'm allowed to read. Not only do I make progress in my books but I've had some nice conversations with patrons there who've seen me with a book or two (or three or four). Sometimes my husband and I make time for coffee and reading on Saturdays. We'll grab our books and head out to Starbucks for a latte and some bookish relaxation. I can make a tall latte last about an hour and a half and usually bring two or three books. I also read a lot on the bus and since I don't drive, I take the bus a lot!

Finding the time to read is always a challenge no matter what- but it's always worth it. What's your favorite time of the day or week to read?
