    Hi Amanda. How do you manage to read so many articles? How much do you read every day?

    • notjustcute

      It depends on the day, really. Some days I read a few, other days I’m lucky just to check my email. Often, if I see an article that looks interesting, but I don’t have time for it, I’ll bookmark it and then I get to read it during my Weekend Reads writing block. So I guess as much as Weekend Reads seems like a selfless way to share info, it’s a little selfish in giving myself a deadline to read all those posts that have intrigued me!
