Today’s Book Blogger Hop question is: Is every day a reading day for you?
Yes. That’s the short answer! I read every day, and honestly doubt there’s been a day in the last, say, ten years when I didn’t read for at least a few minutes. I read in bed before I get up in the morning; over breakfast; on both my breaks at work; over lunch; and again in bed before I go to sleep. Any of those times could be disrupted or interfered with on any given day, but it’s unlikely for all of them to be missed.
I often end up reading less on weekends, oddly enough, because I fill that more open time with other things (like writing or socializing or, less virtuously, TV). But weekdays are pretty set for reading time, and even the weekends include some at the beginning and/or end of the day.
So, yes. Every day is a reading day. I’ve never been quite sure what people do with themselves who don’t read. I mostly read in snatches of 15 minutes or less, and it’s the perfect, brief relaxation for those times.

Yeah, I read a book most days in winter, when it’s dark around four-thirty, so it gives me an hour or so before I start doing ‘evening’ things. In summer I read when my guinea pigs are out on the grass, since I don’t trust the burgeoning cat population to keep out of my garden any more. Any excuse to sit on the lounger in the garden, really! The only days I don’t read are when I’m in full writing flow, and don’t want to interrupt the narrative in my head!
I read every day, too, and I have a more structured reading routine on weekdays. If reading the newspaper counts as reading, that’s how I do it because I read that 7 days a week. I read books 5-6 days a week.
