Musing Mondays #1 (April 23rd)

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)?

My biggest interruption would probably be the internet in general. Twitter, Emails, Facebook, Whatsapp, Live Journal etc. There are just so many distractions especially when I am reading an ebook on my ipad. Hanging out with my friends is also another big interruption, it often takes up an entire day. 
 I am the least distracted while reading when I am traveling. I only look up once in awhile to make sure that I do not miss my stop. I would really love to read more but it is tough to find a block of time for me to just sit back and read. I always find myself squeezing reading time between this and that.

  3. The internet is a huge one for me too! It will steal all your time! I kinda wish I traveled more- a train would be a great place to get reading done!

    2. I've only read 2 chapters so far and its not really drawing me in yet. Judging by the reviews on Goodreads, this is going to be another love it or hate it book. :(

      Have you read it?

  7. Oh, I can't read in a moving vehicle; I get way too nauseous! I can on planes though, so when I fly, I make sure to have plenty of reading material! Here's my MM: http://whatsontheshelf.wordpress.com/2012/04/23/musing-mondays-6/

    1. I can only do it on the train and sometimes on the bus if I am not too hungry otherwise I get nauseous too. :P

  8. I usually have to drive, so reading while traveling is out of the question! But I agree with the internet being a time suck!
