Books for Thought: What distracts you from reading?

Previously known as Monday's Question of the Day, Books For Thought is a feature where I post a book-related question up for discussion. I am open to all opinions and enjoy reading diverse comments from my lovely followers. I look forward to picking your minds!

Have a question idea? Share it here and I'll feature your blog in this post.

What distracts you from reading?

My Response: Unfortunately, a few things: TV Shows, blogging, and listening to the latest music, including my fascination with Korean pop. If I didn't have any of these distractions, I'd probably finish books faster. I have to start working on that though, its like I look at all these books and salivate at the thought of reading them. Yet, when it's time to do it, I sit back and watch TV haha. What's up with that? :)

What are your bookish thoughts?

From actually reading? not much I like doing other stuff besides reading and I like taking breaks and at the moment I have or will have more then enough reviews to keep me going till mid december so I can slow my roll on reading a bit while I catch up with posting

but as far as "book or show" I don't really need to chose in that way sometimes I'll start reading a book and find I'm not in the mood or really want to draw instead but thats rare that that would stop me from reading

Life and kids distract me sometimes from reading. Also if I can't get into the book or it drags then I find another book.

I also mix in fun reading with review so I can enjoy a book when I am in reading mood.

Blogging (anything blog related) is one of my biggest distractions - I can spend hours working on my blog (posts, layout, links, reviews) - you name it and I've spent a ton of time on it.

Like now... I'm surfing blogs to comment on when I really need to be reading a book for review and get some interview questions ready. EEK!

Wow. I think I could make a never-ending list! Lol. Blogging, commenting, homework, surfing the Internet, watching TV and movies, cleaning, phone calls, texting...just about anything else that goes on in my life! Good thing I bring a book with me everywhere I go, or I'd never get anything read!

tv, hanging out with friends, and feeling guilty that I should be studying more all distract me from reading

I'm the exact same (exact) Kpop, tv, movies. I get excited, but just never actually finish.

Absolutely Everything! If any sort of conversation is happening near me, I can lose complete focus on even the best books and the same goes for music playing nearby.

Blogging, commenting, and online games are all distractions for me! And work. Work keeps getting in the way of reading! *L*

Life in general - - there is always too much and no where near enough time!
