Okay, even I can’t read ALL the time, so I’m guessing that you folks might voluntarily shut the covers from time to time as well… What else do you do with your leisure to pass the time? Walk the dog? Knit? Run marathons? Construct grandfather clocks? Collect eggshells?
I am discovering as I age, that I can only sustain one hobby at a time: I have cross-stitched, then crocheted, then I was scrapbooking, then I took up running, and now I am reading. It's not that I only do one thing at a time, but one activity gets my focus. I have always read but not with the ferocity that I am now, and I still make cards occassionally, - quicker than scrapbooking. But one hobby seems to take over my life at a time.
I don't seem to have a lot of other time, what with three kids and a full time job. And unfortunately, my job require me to work at home, correcting blasted tests and physics labs and making up tests and review sheets. I watch TV and play on the computer - blogging, Webkinz, games. I can do both at the same time since our computer is in the same room as the television, so that's handy. The writer's strike is helping with my TV watching, but I still watch quite a bit. I like The Amazing Race, Survivor, Supernanny, Lost, Law &Order, SVU, A Daily Show, Ed's Up, House, American Idol, Criminal Minds (but it is almost too creepy, I can't watch without doing something else to distract me). And shhhh, don't tell anyone, but I'll watch Big Brother, although I think it's a summer show, I'm not sure if I can do it in the winter. Shows I like that aren't on right now: The Office, Brothers and Sisters, Grey's Anatomy, Cold Case.
