Soon, we’ll be getting one whole hour back in our reserves: Woohoo! But seriously, if you want to make an impact on my day, help me reclaim five hours at a time, not just one! But I digress. If you can only spare me one hour, I say we take it and spend it on reading. Not fakey reading, the kind where you skim a bunch of blogs and pat yourself on the back afterward. No, I’m talking about an honest to goodness book with a spine and pages. With the day appearing to shorten because of an earlier sunset, why not even have your entire family take that extra time to read books together, similar to a “game night”?
Reading books seems such a faded pastime. Consider the word: pastime; to pass the time. Wow, how lackadaisical! Really sounds more like a guilty pleasure, don’t you agree? In an era filled with haste and perpetual movement to get things done and keep moving on, reading books in that reclaimed hour might just calm us down a bit. While progress doesn’t happen without us all doing all those things that keep the world spinning, why must casual book-reading be disposable? At a time when literacy among youth is going down, but tube-gazing, reading seems the perfect answer.
