Books are our friends

I dont remember the last time I went to the library or bookstore for books that didnt have to do with school. Its been years since I curled up in my bed or couch and read a good book. Times are changing for many of us. Who has time other than sickly or elderly folks?

I have always been a reader but I am going blind and can no longer read real books. It's sad, but I'm old. I can still read ebooks on my tablet.

[@1216563,chelseamonroe3] That is so stupid and patronizing. It would’ve been better if you never said anything at all

[@1230271,SimplyAPerson] It's what you expect from Christians.

[@45528,hunkalove] Religious fanatics I would say

I’m not sickly or elderly. Reading is my self-care time and I always make time for it.

That makes me sad! Books are a huge part of my life and always have been. When others in my family watch TV in the evening I’m reading. I read when I crawl into bed before I fall asleep. On weekend morning before I start the day. On planes and trains when I travel. On my porch on a summer afternoon. I hope you’ll find a book that pulls you in!

I always make time to read - its a must in my world

I read all the time 😂 I'm in the middle of reading three books.

People can sit on social media for let's say four hours a day reading statuses and comments but act like they don't have time to read.

You make time for whatever it is you are focused on in your life. this really is not true.

[@15494,tenente] Tess of the D’Urbervilles and Far from the Madding Crowd are by Thomas Hardy, though.

You have to make time for it if you enjoy it. Ever since I started working on getting my Master's and part time work on the side, I've had very little free time. But, I still like to take time out of my day to read for a bit. The book I'm reading at the moment is Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Cristie which is simply addictive.

[@866479,sybille] In spite of your schedule it's great that you find some time to escape for a bit to read. Excellent current choice too 👌
