The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, it was relaunched on February 15, 2013 by Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addict. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.
Do you spend your lunchtime reading?
(submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer)
I don’t. I used to! When I worked in an office, I’d eat my lunch while reading a book, and I relished those periods where I could just get lost in the fiction in the middle of a work day. Reading at lunch also helped me block out the office sounds around me, and it was a relaxing break.
Since I work from home full time now, I no longer read on lunch breaks. I keep thinking I should, but usually I’m eating hot food at lunch time rather than a sandwich or similar, so it makes it a bit more difficult to hold a book/Kindle with one hand and eat with the other. My lunches now tend to be more catching up on whatever TV series I’m watching at the time, likely with something that needs doing before hand – putting a wash on or doing the washing up etc.
However, I was in the office recently and fell back on old habits – I picked up a sandwich, settled at my desk, and read my Kindle while I ate. It was kind of nice, actually. But because I don’t read on lunch as much anymore, I have found other times when I can read and try and make up for the time lost.
How about you – do you spend your lunchtimes reading, or do you do something else?
