This week’s musing asks…

Other than working at a job, what is your biggest interruption to reading? What takes you away from your book(s)?   Since I am retired working at a job is not a factor in when or how long I read.  I do remember that the first nine months after I retired I read almost non-stop trying to catch up with all the books I had not had time to read while I worked.  So to today’s questions!

There are several things that take me away from my books.  Most of them are things I choose to do.  I love to garden and this time of year I spend a lot of time outdoors planting, weeding, putting in new beds, and just enjoying being outdoors.  Of course I take time out to sided outside and read.

I live in an area with a lot of retirees and there are a lot of outside activities available.  I belong to several bridge groups that meet on a regular basis.  So there are times weekly and times monthly that I play bridge and don’t read.

Sometimes I just hang out with friends;  eating out, going to movies, shopping, or visiting area attractions.  That takes me away from reading. 

I also volunteer on a regular basis and that takes me away from reading.

And finally, sometimes because I run this blog writing posts takes me away from reading.  If I get to far ahead and don’t write the post I have to go back and do some re-reading so the book blog takes me away from my reading.
