I've been thinking about this recently because I've been really busy the last couple of weeks and haven't been reading as much as I did at this same time last year. Should reading be a priority in one's life?
Now, I realize that for some people reading is their life because of their jobs. But I'm talking about outside of obligatory reading - should leisure reading be a priority?
I guess it really comes down to whether or not leisure in general should occupy an important place in your daily activities. I think that recreation is an important part of keeping our lives balanced and, at least for me, reading is a form of recreation. As much as I enjoy reading, though, it is sometimes the first thing to go when my schedule fills up. I'm wondering if this is a mistake, if I am adding more stress to my load if I exclude my personal reading time.
What do you think?
