Ug. In my house, reading a book is exactly the same as doing nothing. I'm trying to read something, and my kids and my wife seem to view that as an invitation to talk to me about anything and everything. Seriously frustrating. It took me over an hour to read 10 measly pages. 10!!!

@mike same here (minus the kids). I miss the time when I still had to commute via train every day. One hour of quiet reading time. But then again, no cramped trains during corona time is a big plus.

@mike I miss the library. Still. Is it still there? Do they still exist?

...did they ever?

@mike so much this! I used to be an avid reader reading multiple books a month. Now days I have to wait until everyone is asleep to read which typically leads to me just not reading. 🙈
