I wonder why I never have enough time to read everything I want to read. When I do find time to curl up with a book in a hermit corner, it's always short-lived and time passes way too quickly. I even have a reading chair which I read and write in. It's good for posture, apparently.

Why time passes quickly when I'm totally immersed in a book, I have no idea. All I know is that when I delve into a book's pages and get sucked into the story, the next time I look at a clock may be six hours later. Assuming the book is mind-blowingly awesome, of course.

I have horrendous time management. I never have enough time to do my homework or plan my speeches. I rely solely on improvisation, rushing, and sheer pressure. It's not that bad of a plan, and I can pull it off quite well, but where does that leave me with reading? If I can't even find time to do my schoolwork, where in the world will I find time to read?

It's a priority thing, really. I don't know whether I should be proud of ashamed to say I place reading high, high above homework in terms of priority. Though really, it depends on what book it is.

Even though I manage to find time to read. It feels like it's never enough time. Time passes like a trans-dimensional flash (no idea what I'm saying, but hey, I sound smart) when I read.

I think the reason why I'll never feel as if there's enough time is because there are simply too many books I want to read. Too many good books. There'll never be enough time to read all the books in the world. There should be though.

I'm currently reading If I Stay by Gayle Forman. I bought it on kindle, and it's taking me an age to read. What with all the tests and exams I have right now and I'm told to prep for (totally skipping the prep, by the way).

There's not enough time. I wish I had two hours a day where time stopped and I could do whatever I wanted to. I mean, I'd probably get used to it after a while and laze about as I usually do, but hey, a girl can dream.

"You could read a book a day and you'd never finish all the books in the world. But you'd get through a lot."

How do you spare time to read?
