My summer schedule with my four year old is taking some getting used to. We are much more active than last summer and she doesn’t take as many naps. I depended on those naps for reading time! So, my personal reading is not as voracious and I am finding that I am needing to be more creative with my reading time.

Some ways to cram more reading in during my day include having my Kindle or book with me at all times (I could read on my phone, and do sometimes, but I don’t like to look like I am on my phone a lot around her), read while she eats or watches tv, read in the mornings before she wakes (although she wakes super early!), and reading as much before bed. I am also embracing audiobooks more than I have before.

How do you get more reading time in to your daily life?
