Finding time to read should be non-negotiable. I often tell my students how important reading daily is. Often we only read what is necessary and do not read beyond what is expected. In today's digital age you have many options for reading and can even listen to great books as well. True learning moves beyond the classroom and can only be found deep within the seams of a great book.
I found comfort through literature, I loved getting lost in things as marvelous and as wonderful as books. They made me forget about my own troubles, like a submarine and the sea, they submerged me so perfectly.
