How to Make Time to Read

Reading is fun but what if you never have the time for it? Being a full time student and employee, it can be hard to find time to read so I wanted to talk about somethings I do to find time.

  1. Work Breaks

At my job, I have a lot of spare time…A LOT! In this spare time, I just read. I am able to sit down and work on my homework. This usually involves reading my textbooks or other things for classes. While not all people are as lucky as I am, I also read over my lunch hour and can usually crank out a couple pages before I have to get back to work.


2. Waiting in Line

If you have a smartphone, you can pretty much assess anything at anytime. One other thing I found helpful it reading in long lines. Of course you have to stay aware of your surrounding so you don’t hold up the line but this way you can get at least a page or two closer to the end!

3. Bedtime Stories

Reading at night can be difficult for some people because it makes them so tired they aren’t comprehending what they are reading. This can be a problem but if you can find some spare time to stay awake a little longer every night, it will pay off in the long run!

4. Getting Ready

Most people (I know) like to listen to music or watch television when they get ready in the morning but, if you listen to your book it will help to progress in your book. Some would consider this not really reading the book but if you are super busy, it is something to take into consideration!

These are just a couple ways that work for me. Hopefully you found some that you can try out for yourself!

Until next time,

  1. So far, I have downloaded the Overdrive app on my phone so that I can listen to audiobooks, but since they don’t use inflection in the right places and the music on the children’s books is overpowering the words, it makes it hard for me to enjoy them very much. I agree that it is still a good idea to always have an audiobook waiting in case you are busy but can still listen.


  2. Nice to see how so many people come at an assignment differently. I really like how you listed the times and places you find time to read. I’m definitely going to think of this post the next time I take out my book during free time.


  3. That is awesome that you when your on break at work that you take the time to read your books. Also it is great time reading some of these books to your children because that what I do also and they are learning that reading is very important. Also I am one of those people to watch tv and get ready for the day I do not like to read in the morning . Great Blog
