    Thanks! Appreciate it! You reminded me to take my vitamins! I get up and write because I’m “in the zone” the first hour of the day and have to work the reading in. However, whatever you do, it’s alot easier to be selfish with your time at 5 or 6 am than at 8 or 9 am.

      Ha! Glad I could take part in keeping you healthy! And about the writing first, that is what I have learned many writers do. Haruki Murakami and Stephen King both write for 4 or more hours every morning according to their memoirs and find time to read later. There is a meme floating around the internet of famous writers’ most productive times. I will try to send it your way.

    On days off I do frequently read first thing in the morning. It would be tough to give up sleep before work days to do it but it might be worth trying. You do find more reading time throughout the day when reading first thing.

      Exactly. And that would be tough. For me it’s just a better alternative to reading at night before falling asleep. It works for some, but it’s not my style.

    Great ideas here. I read for 15 minutes most mornings and find it a good way to start the day and a helpful way to get through a lot of books each year.

      That is a great point. It’s good to remember every little bit helps.
