‘I’d love to read, if I had the time.’

‘I’d love to read, if I had the time.’

I’ve often found when talking to non-bookworms about my love of reading, they’ll come out with the statement ‘I’d love to read too, but I just don’t have time’, or something similar.

Of the three sisters, she is… Read more »
