Breakfast Babble: ED’s own little space on the interwebs where we gather to discuss ideas and get pumped up for the day. We judge things too. Sometimes. Always. Whatever, call it catharsis and join in people.

To put things into perspective, I love reading as much as your pados waali aunty loves prying into your life. In a sense, I am that pados waali aunty prying into the lives of fictional characters. I just can’t get enough.

To put it simply, I read so much because I love to and I don’t think there’s a better feeling in the world. I can be wherever, it can be whenever, and there are high chances that you will find me with my nose in a book.

Why Do I Read So Much?

I had been an only child for 5 years when my mother was pregnant for the second time. I was pretty attached to my mother and I would often feel low when she was under the influence of medicines and did not spend time with me. My grandmother then would spin stories out of thin air to distract me.

I would give her outrageous plots and she would tell me a story revolving around it. Though it did not always make sense, it gave birth to my love for fiction. (I once asked her to tell me a story about a girl who kept brushing her teeth. And she did. And no, I will not share).

(A fairy appeared on the scene and asked her to stop).

Eventually my grandmother went back but around the same time my school had started hosting Scholastic fairs. Thus began my journey of reading. I have now become such an avid reader that I go through more than 100 books a year, easily. (Yes, it was a brag).

How Do I Read So Much?

It’s easy to read so much when one spends most of their free time reading. I read, on average, 100-150 pages a day, which makes it approximately 2 books a week.

I also usually read 2-3 books at the same time. I often pair a fictional and a non-fictional book, so that I can sound smart and also be entertained. I like reading a short story before bed, and that adds to the 100 pages that I already read during the day.

People often do not realise how much time is spent during the day just waiting for the next activity to begin. For example, you’re waiting to take a shower but your sibling is hogging it. Instead of scrolling mindlessly, just read. It is as simple as that.

Do you like reading as well? Which was the last book that you read? Tell me about it in the comment section for I’d love to add another to my never-ending TBR list!
