Lark of The Bookwyrm's Hoard I read pretty fast; I've re-read a lot of books this year (and re-reading goes even faster); and I tend to stay up too late reading. Or wake up in the middle of the night and read, because I can't get back to sleep. Insomnia does make for more reading time! ;-)

Actually, this year I was also sick and recovering for a couple of months, and didn't get a lot else done.

Of course, I could ask the same question about you and the beautiful needlework you do -- how do you find the time?! :-)

Kaethe Re: needlework -- I squeeze in a few minutes here and there. It helps to leave the current project out: set up and ready to go, with needles and threads right there. But you'd be surprised how quickly 15 mins here and there adds up!

Lark of The Bookwyrm's Hoard I can do that with some books, but most need more than 15 minutes at a time. I do that with knitting to some extent, though -- at least the uncomplicated patterns.

Kaethe I absolutely agree about most books needing more than 15 minutes here and there. Perhaps that's why I don't get through as many!
