When I was a little girl, I could stick myself away in a corner and read for hours on end, and it was totally the life. Then came high school and work and the real world and, while I still loved reading, I kind of forgot how to actually do that for more than fifteen minutes at a time. Reading became something I could do in tiny moments or for five minutes at the end of the day before falling asleep.
When I returned to studying, I was miffed to discover I had completely lost the ability to read for any real period of time without dozing off. Tragic! So part of my tertiary education has been a re-education in reading, and how to keep it up for longer than ten minutes. Believe it or not, I'm still learning. But when I have a massive stack of pages to get through, one of my favourite things is to take my quilt and book pile out to the grassy patch in front of my little verandah. I get to soak up some vitamin D while soaking up the words, and it helps me stay awake! Plus, the view is just gorgeous.
