Binge Reading

Maybe this is a dumb question, but what’s the reading equivalent of binge-watching? Perhaps waiting to read a series until it’s been finished?

Schedule

I’ll admit this may be dumb. I love the blogging feature where you “schedule” rather than “publish.” It is such a weight off my mind, even though it is hardly different: I won’t really get up earlier than 6am to catch a final error before “going live.”

The comforts we cling to are so often additional steps. We add to our days rather than subtract from them, despite feeling a frightful scarcity of time.
