Life On The Treadmill
I write and I work, and unfortunately I have a deep need for reading, a task that all too often falls by the wayside in favor of more pressing matters. Another task (usually the first one scratched off the list when something more pressing like removing my nail polish comes along) is exercise.
I really want to get some exercise in during the day. Seriously, I do. Don't double over in laughter!
When people ask about the merits of e-readers over paperback, one example would be the treadmill. I hop on the treadmill (with slightly more verve than the fellow in this picture), and I set my e-reader down on the stand, and change the font to one inch tall...and I multitask!!! Reading and exercise. I have multi-tasked! I actually used to attempt this with paperbacks, but I had to hold the book open with one hand while simultaneously running...which is impossible, so perhaps a benefit to paperbacks is that they kept me from jogging. :)
My big battle is economizing on cooking time. I want a good meal, but the time to prepare it eludes me. Alas, Roomba can't help with the cooking. :(
Does anyone have any time-saving formulas to share? Please? :)
