I think that a way for me to see reading as an indulgence rather than a chore would be associating it with things I enjoy.  Two things that come to mind are coffee and aesthetics.  I love coffee and drink it quite obsessively.  Typically I drink it black or with a little bit of milk in it, however, I will occasionally indulge in a latte or cappuccino.  I think that linking reading with a ‘fancy’ coffee would make me feel like it is a more relaxing and indulgent activity.  I also love aesthetics and enjoy spending time in beautiful and aesthetically pleasing environments.  I think that reading in a coffee shop, museum, outside or with a candle lit would make me enjoy it more.
