Last Friday I said that you could be sure I would have a review for you today.
I genuinely believed I would.
But alas here I am, Wednesday has come back around and I don’t have a book to review. I feel pretty awful about it but it’s raised a really important question for me as of recent: How do I prioritize reading when I’m so busy I rarely have time to sit down and take a breather?
Like Jenn, I’m a 6th grade language arts teacher. School started just over two weeks ago and I’m constantly either at school, trying to plan and perfect lessons or grading something. On top of it I wake up at 5 a.m. to be at work on time, so I’m a little on the tired side.
For the first time in my life I’m struggling to figure out how to make time to really get some reading done.
I try to get at least 100 pages of reading in a day. As I try to catch up with work, I know that once I’m on a regular routine and comfortable that little chunk of time I’ve attempted to carve out, it won’t be difficult to follow. Until then though, I’m struggling to get there.
So, in the mean time, please forgive me for being so negligent. I KNOW I will have a review for you Friday. I’m not far from finishing a book right now, but in the mean time, I would love advice from everyone on how to balance my crazy life and reading time.
