Unplugging?

I read an article about why people don’t read.  The answer, according to the article, is electronics.  TV.  Smartphones.  Computers.  Video games.  Ok.  I get that.  Distractions.

I have distractions such as chores, other books, and random thoughts.  Most of them aren’t electronic.

One of my favorite electronic devices is my Kindle.  That’s how I get the majority of my reading done.  I tend to read faster on it.  I think because I am not distracted/overwhelmed by seeing how many more pages I have left.  Also, technically, my car radio is electronic, too, and that’s how I get my audiobooks completed.

I have been asked by many people about how I find time to read.  I could be reading more than I do, but I have other interests, too.  I do turn off the TV and read, often.  I put the phone down when I’m reading.  I even put my headphones on to tune out random noises while I read.  I make time, find time, etc.  I enjoy it, so I make it a priority.
