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?
Enough about books? Enough about books? What do you mean, enough about books! You simply cannot, in my not-very humble opinion, have too much about books. What do I do when I'm not reading books? Well, these days, I mostly read other people writing about books in their blogs. It takes up quite a lot of time, and I can't do it nearly as often as I would like to (especially when the wifi connection on the train disappears, but I mustn't start ranting).
So when I'm not reading, I am mostly working or sleeping. I do, however, usually watch television programmes for an hour or two in the evenings. Not live television, but programmes like Cranford or Jam and Jerusalem, or something off DVD. Current addiction is Studio 60, but we don't have many episodes left. If I didn't make time for this, my husband would never see me without the usual book or laptop.
The dogs and chickens get quite a bit of time and attention, though I don't manage as much time for walking as I'd like. I have been known to knit, or toy with the odd piece of tapestry work, but computer-induced RSI has limited that. I used to dance, and will again, I hope. Now pass me a book, someone, before I suffer from withdrawal symptoms.
