Bogged Down with Reading

How many of us love reading to the extent that we cannot keep up with our purchases? Everywhere, there’s bargains to be snapped up: The Works, Waterstones, W H Smith, and the many indie bookstores who support us.

To keep pace with my compulsive reading, I hereby confess to being a ‘toilet reader’. Might it be viewed as ‘disrespectful’ to read an author’s work in concert with, ahem, other business? Does being a toilet reader label me a freak, or merely obsessed?

Also dabbling in poetry, Paige produces emotive verse from romance through to environmental issues. Writing is her lifeblood, but as experienced by many writers, there’s a shortfall of financial nutrients feeding the blood.

  • I don’t think that’s disrespectful – it shows you want to keep reading the book, wherever you happen to be. You might not want to actually mention the specific location to the author though.

  • Thanks Patsy. I’ll keep that in mind, and read only ‘living’ authors!!
    I guess it’s also worth mentioning that ‘From Story Idea to Reader’ got a run in a few rooms in my home, but I will insulate you from further detail.

    Ugh, no. In and out – that’s me. I always worry about where library books might have been.

    I love the frog picture, though…
