A Snapshot of My Reading Life

So this is a physical snapshot of my reading life. This is my meeting house library that has everything I look for in a cozy reading environment: natural sunlight, cozy chairs, warm blankets, drawers stashed with office supplies, and of course a host of good books.

04:30 wake up
05:38 read while riding the bus (commute is nearly 2 hours and one perk is reading time)
7:30 arrive at work
3:30 depart work
4:09 read while riding the bus
6:00 eat and read
8:30 sleep
