Musing Mondays — Distractions

Today’s Musing Mondays question is… “Other than working at a job, what is your biggest interruption to reading? What takes you away from your book(s)?”

Those jobs, always getting in the way! But it’s true, I do sometimes find myself not reading even when I’m not getting paid to do other things… Usually the distraction is in the form of television shows, like when I spent most of December getting caught up with 30 Rock (only to fall behind again in January) or like last month when I discovered Community, or probably like next month when I’ll be recovering from jetlag with something completely mindless on Netflix. Suggestions?

The other thing that takes me away from reading, though less often, is video games. I’m not like the hubby who spends inordinate amounts of time shooting people and then shooting them again when they come back to life (seriously, if you think about Call of Duty too hard it breaks your brain) or building civilizations and making treaties and stuff, but if you give me a good tower defense game like GemCraft or a game I actually have to play with other people like Draw Something I can forget about books for hours or days at a time.

Thank goodness books don’t hold grudges…
