What of my favorite things about having reading as a hobby is that it can be done while doing other things, without being counterproductive. For example - most fitness equipment like treadmills and elipitcals are totally conducive to reading while using. Although I suppose trying to read on one of the rowing machines could get a little hairy. But you can also read while waiting at the DMV or the doctor's office. You can read while sitting at your child's sports, music, dance or whatever kind of practice.
The trick to being able to read while doing other things is that you have to be able to hold your place on a page - look up, engage in something else, and get back to the same spot without having to reread the same sentence fifteen times. This is a skill that not ever reader - regardless of how experienced - has. From talking to many friends that are avid readers I have come to the conclusion that you either got it or don't. So do you have it?
