This week’s musing asks:
What distracts you when you really “should be reading”? (Pun intended, because the blog that hosts Musing Mondays is called Should Be Reading)
The internet is the culprit but I have to hold myself responsible as well. What started to be the inspiration for readings ideas can be a distraction at times. I downsize my blog reading and Facebook time in order to make time for reading. Work and hanging with friends could get in the way but at least they are obligatory and/or welcoming distractions.
Even since work has imposed a monthly furlough day, I have scheduled a weekend getaway—Los Angeles, Palm Springs, Las vegas—all within two hours of travel by flights. I have caught up with lots of reading that I wished done when I’m home. Between gate to gate, you’ll be amazed how much you can read.
