As We Grow Older, We Tend to Read Less.

Hi,

I was never an active member of any forums, and frankly I started off joining this forum to promote my writing. However, once I begin browsing through the threads, I start to want to participate, largely because I am still the same bookworm underneath.

Which brings me to the realization:

As We Grow Older, We Tend to Read Less.

I'm sure it doesn't just apply to me. When I was a kid, or even as a teenager, reading fiction seemed to be my full-time job, and my schoolwork part-time. Now reading fiction has been delegated to the sidelines, so that I haven't read fiction in months. By now the only time I have for reading is right before bed, and I'm now stuck with a non-fiction book (Guns, Germs and Steel) that I'm determined to finish (gave up on it halfway through the first time I read it).

And it's a real shame, because fiction is a really important part of my life.

What about you? Do you feel the same too - now that you're a full-fledged adult and everything in life needs your attention, reading fiction has become increasingly difficult?
