OKAY LET ME TELL YOU A STORY ABOUT THE FUCKING PINK EGGS.
I work at a concession stand in an ice rink. We sell a bunch of chocolate bars and snacks and shit including Kinder Surprise eggs.
So one day this woman comes up to the counter with her two little kids, a girl who鈥檚 probably about 6 or 7 and a little boy, maybe 3 or 4.

I was having a surprisingly good conversation with my sister recently and I was talking about how one of the reasons I don鈥檛 read as much as I used to is because I don鈥檛 have the same resources I did when I was a 4th grader. When I was a kid, I could sit and read all I wanted, all I had to to was exist and go where people took me. I didn鈥檛 have to feed myself or pay bills or keep track of things, which of course now I have to deal with all of those things so I can鈥檛 read as much and tend to read pretty easy to read books. My sister brought up the really good point that, of course I want to read easy books, I鈥檓 a young adult, in a very tumultuous phase of life, constantly being thrown new information, my brain doesnt want a classical novel, my brain wants something readable and immersive. tl;dr don鈥檛 feel bad for not reading as much as you used to, it鈥檚 okay. Read what you can when you can and don鈥檛 stress about the rest But nowadays, there are so many more resources for reading that you can gain access to. Even though you鈥檙e busy and stressed out my life, that doesn鈥檛 mean you shouldn鈥檛 continue to strive to read whenever possible. I鈥檝e compiled this basic list of super accessible ways to read in the modern age.1. LibbyLibby is a library app, and it free to use. If you have a library card (which you can either pick up at a branch or online, depending on where you live), you put in your information, and you have access to your library鈥檚 ebooks and audiobooks. Generally, you can check ebooks out for two to three weeks, and it gives you the option to renew (if someone isn鈥檛 waiting in line for that book) or return early. It鈥檚 super user- friendly. If you want to scam the system a little bit, a lot of libraries give you 30 to 60 days after making a card online to come in and actually get a physical card and show your ID. If you are looking for a specific book that your library may not have, make library cards at other locations with fake addresses and check out their supply. I personally have about eight library cards, so I always can find what I鈥檓 looking for unless it鈥檚 super rare. 2. KindleWhile you can buy the actual Amazon e-reader, you can also just use the free app. There are a bunch of ebooks you can read for free, or for a low price. If you have Kindle Unlimited ($10/month), you can borrow up to ten KU books at a time for as long as you want. A lot of authors have KU books, so it鈥檚 a good way to go. 3. NookBarnes and Noble鈥檚 Nook is similar to the Kindle鈥攃omes in a physical e-reader, but is also usable as a free app. I will say I find that their selection generally costs more than Amazon鈥檚 selection, but it鈥檚 an option if you prefer to stay away from Amazon products. One thing they do sometime around the end of the year is send you out a refund check for all the books that you purchased through them that were at a higher market price then they would鈥檝e been elsewhere. I鈥檝e gotten like three of these, so I figure it鈥檚 a regular thing. 4. AudibleFor people who are sight-impaired or have difficulty sitting down and reading a book, audiobooks are SO the way to go. When you sign up, you can receive up to two free audiobooks, and whatever plan you decide to go with gives you two free audiobooks a month (from a specific selection) in addition to your credits! If you have Kindle ebooks, there is sometimes an option to purchase the accompanying Audible audiobook for a super discounted rate. If you don鈥檛 like an audiobook, you can call in to return it at any time. I have something like forty or fifty audiobooks from them, and I鈥檝e exchanged another twenty. These options are all in addition to physical books from your local library, and discount bookstores. The nice thing about ebooks is that generally they have the option to highlight and bookmark pages, change the font size and type, and even change the color of the page if you prefer.I always thought audiobooks were for old people until a few years ago when I was commuting about three hours a day for work. I wasn鈥檛 reading nearly as much, and as an avid reader, that distressed me greatly.Finally, I looked into audiobooks and it was a huge life changer. Instead of wasting three hours a day in traffic, I was reading for three hours a day that I would鈥檝e otherwise not been able to. Not only does it make a trip go faster, but it makes it much more enjoyable.And even if you don鈥檛 want it for the commute or for the gym, audiobooks are a really good option for people who have vision problems. I have migraines when I stare at screens too much, so I pop on an audiobook and just crochet or do the dishes. I have a friend who has very bad eyesight, and he has not been able to read in something close to a year. I set him up with a library card and a Libby account, and all of a sudden, he was able to catch up on all the books he had been wanting to read!I鈥檓 just saying, I promote reading because no matter what you read, you鈥檙e learning something. Even though life is stressful and crazy and distracting, there are still ways you can find to sit down and curl up with a good book. 鈥淢y brother has his sword, I have my books. And a mind needs books like a sword needs a whetstone.鈥 -Tyrion Lannister

I personally have about eight library cards, so I always can find what I鈥檓 looking for unless it鈥檚 super rare. 2. KindleWhile you can buy the actual Amazon e-reader, you can also just use the free app. There are a bunch of ebooks you can read for free, or for a low price. If you have Kindle Unlimited ($10/month), you can borrow up to ten KU books at a time for as long as you want. A lot of authors have KU books, so it鈥檚 a good way to go. 3. NookBarnes and Noble鈥檚 Nook is similar to the Kindle鈥攃omes in a physical e-reader, but is also usable as a free app. I will say I find that their selection generally costs more than Amazon鈥檚 selection, but it鈥檚 an option if you prefer to stay away from Amazon products. One thing they do sometime around the end of the year is send you out a refund check for all the books that you purchased through them that were at a higher market price then they would鈥檝e been elsewhere. I鈥檝e gotten like three of these, so I figure it鈥檚 a regular thing. 4. AudibleFor people who are sight-impaired or have difficulty sitting down and reading a book, audiobooks are SO the way to go. When you sign up, you can receive up to two free audiobooks, and whatever plan you decide to go with gives you two free audiobooks a month (from a specific selection) in addition to your credits! If you have Kindle ebooks, there is sometimes an option to purchase the accompanying Audible audiobook for a super discounted rate. If you don鈥檛 like an audiobook, you can call in to return it at any time. I have something like forty or fifty audiobooks from them, and I鈥檝e exchanged another twenty. These options are all in addition to physical books from your local library, and discount bookstores. The nice thing about ebooks is that generally they have the option to highlight and bookmark pages, change the font size and type, and even change the color of the page if you prefer.I always thought audiobooks were for old people until a few years ago when I was commuting about three hours a day for work. I wasn鈥檛 reading nearly as much, and as an avid reader, that distressed me greatly.Finally, I looked into audiobooks and it was a huge life changer. Instead of wasting three hours a day in traffic, I was reading for three hours a day that I would鈥檝e otherwise not been able to. Not only does it make a trip go faster, but it makes it much more enjoyable.And even if you don鈥檛 want it for the commute or for the gym, audiobooks are a really good option for people who have vision problems. I have migraines when I stare at screens too much, so I pop on an audiobook and just crochet or do the dishes. I have a friend who has very bad eyesight, and he has not been able to read in something close to a year. I set him up with a library card and a Libby account, and all of a sudden, he was able to catch up on all the books he had been wanting to read!I鈥檓 just saying, I promote reading because no matter what you read, you鈥檙e learning something. Even though life is stressful and crazy and distracting, there are still ways you can find to sit down and curl up with a good book.
