Snatch Reading in Spare Moments

On my nightstand, in my work bag, in my kitchen, in my purse, on my shelves, in my closet, in totes, in boxes, in my Kindle, in my computer... I've got books everywhere! What are you reading?


  1. I love to read..

    I read my bible first thing in the morning [So nothing will come up and make me not do it. I use to try it at night..But , would get busy..]
    This past couple weeks, I haven't read any books.. I have been spring cleaning and getting our house ready to sale ?? SO.. no time.. but hope to read soon. Have a great week.

  2. I understand, Judy. Glad you're getting things done and getting your Bible read first!

    Blessings to you from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,


  3. Hi Laura. I agree. I adore reading and yet confine myself to a reading marathon when on holidays. I'm taking your advice and leaving a book here and there, including in the car, to see if I can rectify that. Thankyou for sharing this at Five Star Frugal. Hopefully others will be similarly inspired. Mimi xxx

  4. Let's see, by my bed I have "God and Kings" by Lynn Austin, as well as "Good Poems", for when I'm in-between books.

    In my living room I have my bible and
    "Faith" by Reinhard Bonnke

    In the loo I have "The Domes Day Book" and "All in a Word" by Vivian Cook,
    in my work bag I have "Interweave Knits"

    My book club book this month is "Still Life with Bread Crumbs" by Anna Quindlen.

    Hmmmm.... seems like a short list!

  5. I hope you find it works for you Mimi.

  6. I am still reading Matt. 4, and have been for over 2 yrs, every day. Something I felt I was supposed to do, on the temptation of the Lord. I am still working on it, I believe I will know when I am finished. I'm also going through the book of Acts, I'm in chapter 12 right now.

    At the library I checked out Trim, Healthy Mama, and Taste of Home Cake Mix Creations, (that sounds ridicules, but I found the cook book when my order for the THM came in. I am also reading Clear The Clutter, Find Happiness. I found 3 - 25 cent books also, On The Way to The Future, Daniel's Visions and the Believer's Hope by Ray Stedman, WW Complete Food Companion, Points Values, and last but not least, Love Finds You in Sugar Creek Ohio. I read novels, and the Stedman book, front to finish, but everything else in bits and pieces as I go along. My Bible study goes from the beginning of the book until the end, except for the long read on Matt. 4

  7. Now I want to go read Matthew 4 just to see what's there! You've got several books going, too. Do you read a bit of all or do you read them one at a time? I read like some folks watch tv episodes, a little here a little there.

  8. I've had so little time for reading lately! I set aside time early each morning to read my Bible, but after that I pretty much just read children's books.
    I hope to get into a good book soon, though, as this is refreshing to me.

  9. I absolutely understand Shannon. That's why I snatch a few minutes here and there!

  10. I have a huge pile of books right by my bed waiting to be read. I always read late into the night while laying on my side in bed with my reading's something I look forward to each evening :)

    Hugs to you!

  11. I so enjoy reading too Laura and I appreciate the fact that you have books all over the place. I am especially grateful for the kindle on my phone so that I can take it with me easily and read here and there, otherwise there seems no time. Thanks for sharing with us at Good Morning Mondays. Have a blessed week.

  12. I've enjoyed books on my Ipod's Kindle app as well Terri.

  13. So many great reads so little time. I hope I'd find the time for these. :)


  14. Hi, these are great ideas. I also have to snatch time reading between blogging and writing. :)

    Please consider linking up with this week's Literacy Musing Mondays at :

  15. Hi Mary,

    I'll do that. Be healed in Jesus' Name!

  16. I do snatch reading when I am waiting in the Dr's office. Rarely go to the Dr. so don't do it often enough. I've got to snatch a little more! Thanks for sharing with SYC.


Hello! I love it when you all talk back!

I read all the comments I receive. I answer as many as I can.

Right now, I am undergoing radiation treatments, healing from breast cancer surgery on October 20th, and dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy.

I'm having a hard time replying to all the comments. Please understand if I do not answer. This is all new to me.

I treasure your prayers and your comments.

If you have a question, or you need a response, be sure I can reach you by email or subscribe to the comments. I will try to answer each question and request. It just may take me some time.
