The cost of time

In English one "spends" time.  Sometimes you pass time.

It just occured to me I have no way in Vaior to say "I spent much of
today reading."

How do other languages handle this idea?  I'm thinking mostly about
natlangs, but conlangs that have avoided the monetary associations
would be interesting to me, too.
