I am worried that I am addicted to reading. There, I’ve said it. I admit it. I really worry that I am.
I’ve read almost 150 books this year. That’s a lot of books. I spend almost all my free time reading. It’s all I want to do. Lately I’ve spent a lot of time reading new books instead of finishing the old ones I’ve already started. I don’t know why.
I will read rather than do anything else. I may start reading at 10 a.m. in the morning and not stop until 4 p.m. in the afternoon. I read all day. Then I read again in the evening. I also read very fast. I mostly read novels. I like mystery and light romance novels. Nothing heavy, though I also read biographies. I just like to read.
But I don’t get anything else done. I go to appointments like I should, but I don’t get much else done around the house. I get the dogs out and answer my email. I don’t knit and crochet much anymore. I’m too busy reading. Forget the housework. Forget even eating. I’m too busy reading.
So you see I am really addicted to reading. It has become an obsession. It’s not a good thing. There can be worse obsession, I know. But I need to break the cycle and do some more construction things. But until then I’ll read.
