Where Does the Time Go?

Booking Through Thursday

Have you ever missed an important appointment because you have become so engrossed in a book you forgot the time or were up so late reading that you didn't wake up in time? Been late to work because you couldn't resist the temptation and left the house too late?Suggested by Jacquie.

Don't forget to leave a link to your actual response in the comments—or if you prefer, leave your answers in the comments themselves!

- I do missed a TV shows when am too engrossed in a book that I forgotten to find out what happen after the commerical ended. And few time I even forgot to watch that I missed the whole show all together *grin*. Old habit of mine :)

I do read in bed at night. And when I do, if I'm too engrossed with the book I end up reading it until 5AM in the morning - Yike! So I wake up late to go to work (even though my mother own her small work shop) but it isn't that big deal sometime if we're late. Unless if we know that customers coming to pick up their clothes that day. Then there is cost to worry *grin*.

Happy Booking Through Thursday! Hope everyone have nice day!

Hi Julia,

I read at night and sometimes got carried away to the morning just like you... Simply can't put the book down. LOL. The mind is unwilling to yield to the body (sleep)...

Happy BTT!

Cheers, Alice

TV never wins over a book, right?

Hi, Julia! I'm the same way about tv. If I actually want to watch a show, I cannot read during the commercials or I'll forget I'm supposed to put the book down with the show comes back on. I inevitably will forget to watch again.

I'm the same way, too, about television. If I'm not knitting, I'm reading, and I have no idea what's on the screen. It's white noise...

Alice - love the way you think *grin* but yeah the mind unwilling to yield to the body

Marianne - yep TV never win over a book...although LOL *grin*

Literary - I guess it good thing if we have VCR, right? We can read while it recording *grin*

Teabird17 - Even the white noise can be distraction LOL

Thanks everyone for stopping by my blog! I hope you have a nice BTT day! :)
