Many joke that they can't function before their morning coffee. Can those same people become early-morning readers? (Nana Aba Duncan)

Rise and read! At our request, Nana Aba Duncan has spent the past week reading first thing in the morning. Instead of a sleepy start, the busy radio host, producer and parent began her day with at least 20 pages of intellectual stimulation. 

q: Have you ever felt too busy to read? Do you think a morning reading ritual would help? Or do you have other tips to share?
