I love to read, but sometimes it can feel overwhelming with everything else I have going on. I don't ever want reading and my blog to feel like work, so I do make sure that I read something that's just for me, without any intention of blogging about it. Sometimes I'll end up reviewing it because I really want to share the book, and other times I don't.
I'm lucky that I work in a library, so reading and talking about books is encouraged in my job. As much as we love to read, our reading is done after work or on breaks. I do wish that librarians got time to actually read during work though-that would be great!
I'm actually terrible about scheduling posts-I really only do that on the weekends. Other days I'm writing up a blog post the night before I want it to appear (like right now!) When I started blogging, I didn't have a book to review every day, but now my reading is ahead of my blog, so I have some rainy day reviews saved up.
*Note-I'm not feeling as though my blog is not fun, I still love it! I'm just interested in hearing from other bloggers on how they balance everything, especially when blogging is a very time consuming hobby and not a paid job.
