I checked in at the Booking Through Thursday blog, which is the host for a weekly book meme or blogging prompt. Here is this week’s prompt:
Outside of books, what’s your favorite thing to read? Newspapers? Magazines? Blogs? Fanfiction? Specific websites?
The 90-minute breakfast time at the coffee shop every morning (weekend too) is my reading time. I started the habit since I graduated from college. It’s the time to reflect, to think, and to delve into the language of books. One of my favorite things to do when I am traveling is pop into the independent bookstore in whatever city I happen to be visiting. Books become as vital and necessary as air. So I chain-read with books lined up like appointments. Over the years my time spent on watching TV and going to movies have plummeted. On newspapers I only read the headlines. Magazine subscriptions I have discontinued except for Men’s Health. I read the Macy’s coupon book more scrupulously than any magazine now. Book blogs are also daily nourishment. At the bookstores I read staff’s recommendation cards. On the street I have fun reading messages imprinted on T-shirts.
