Changing Reading Routines

Chat HeaderBefore lockdown, I had quite specific times that I read and it often wasn’t whilst I was at home. I had gotten into the habit of reading on my commute to and from work (or most times I used public transport), reading in cafes with friends and attempting to read before bed but this rarely ever happened. Lockdown has changed this quite a lot as the only place I can now read is at home! I always had a weird relationship with the word ‘productivity’ and what it means and I’ve had to again deal with it as I felt guilty reading at home – read on to see how I’ve adapted my reading routines!

My Favourite Places to Read

Chat HeaderWith everything going on at the minute, I’ve found myself picking up on things I’ve been missing recently, one of which is a simple luxury of reading in different places! I thought I’d write a post about my favourite little spots to read, both very specific places and more general. I’ve always been someone who likes to change up their setting a lot (at university, I used to jump between studying in my bedroom, my friend’s room, our kitchen and the uni library) and lockdown has made me even more aware of this.

I’ve barely had the time or the energy to do anything really and sadly reading is something that has fell behind.  Continue reading “I’m Struggling to Finish a Book! (Blogmas)”

Reading Multiple Books at Once

Chat Header

Obviously, this is not all in one go. I’m not like an octopus, with eight arms, a book in each one, eyes jumping between them all. However, lately I’ve really been a fan of reading multiple books at once rather than just one. I never used to do this when I was younger because I assumed I would hate it and to be honest, I read so fast that one at a time was enough. I wanted to write a little post about the books I’m currently reading and my reasons (because yes, of course, I have a system)! Continue reading “Reading Multiple Books at Once”

BEDM: What It’s Like Being A Dyslexic Reader

Chat Header

For most of my younger life i let my dyslexia beat me and never even attempted reading. I was behind in my scheduled reading in school, and once secondary school hit i could get away with my inability to read an actual book cover to cover. I’m not saying this is the right way to do it, but it’s the way i did it.
