Not for me. When I am reading a novel, then I may read it daily until it gets finished. Usually, it takes 10 days to complete a novel. Then, I may not read for one entire month.
I've been remiss on that front for a while. I've got several books I've got to catch up on - one given by a daughter because it involved Harald Sigurdsson - but while I write the current book in the series I need to channel my thoughts into thinking 'early mediaeval English'. When I've got it published (hopefully May) I can get going again for a while.
There are two books I bought by James Nelson in his series about the Irish Norse, 'Fin Gall' and 'Dubh-linn', and one by David Gibbins titled 'Crusader Gold'. Look forward to getting my teeth into them.
Meanwhile i've got almost two chapters left to write and the whole book to edit.
I only read fiction when I was in school, I prefer to watch the movie version. Even though screenwriters do it different.
In the last few decades even watching the movies was disappointing. Today everything looks like a comic book, as if the writers have no imagination of their own.
So, it is not only not a part of my daily activity, it is not in any of my activities.
I guess that in going to college, I had to read so many things, and many were either about the law or technology that I didn't read beyond it. Then, technical writing and reading are a part of my jobs, so most of my reading is non fiction.
My wife is the avid novel reader.
hp is not a novel, but I do read a lot of fiction here.
I'm in the same boat as you. The reading I did at work and for work was automotive related, business, and professional stuff. Then school classes over my career. I got tired of reading. I read online a lot, but want to read novels again.
I have over 250 semester college units over 12 yrs, and that means a lot of reading, mostly non fiction . Where you and I differ is that I have no desire to read novels. My wife is addicted to reading novels& newspapers. I tried but nogo.
Reading is part of my day, every day, but not always fiction. When I just need a little escape, I read fiction. But I also read a lot of non-fiction. I especially like history and biography.
