Books are great but a lot of tarot reading is about knowing your cards well. A lot of tarot card "meanings" are vague, for example "love" or "transformation". Because of this, tarot reading also requires a little bit of genuine thought about the cards to put teh peices together into a truly coherent reading. Take some time to look at the cards and think about them (meditating can help) and it'll get easier to work out how to read them.

Having a question helps so that you can look for an answer but there's nothing that fundamentally requires a question. However, I'd encourage at minimum having a theme or area of life in mind or the reading risks becoming impossibly tangled and incoherent.

The upright/reversed thing offers more depth to a reading since you essentially double the number of cards. If you find it easier though you don't have to include reversed meanings in your readings.

There is no shame at looking at the meaning of the tarot card, if need be.

Of course you can ask questions, but the Tarot will answer in a very unexpected way. Most of the time, the cards may give you answers that you have to think through or to apply to your situation in a different light, if that makes sense.

And this is me speaking from my own experience with Tarot.

As for your meditation time crunch, I suggest you find time to meditate before you go to bed. That way, it will be very unlikey that anyone will disturb you.

Let your thought's flow. Do not try and shut yourself out from your thoughts. Let them come and go. Relax. Focus more on your breath. Zone out.

You don't have to meditate to learn to read the tarot
Start by getting a book and jotting down all 78 cards
Get a few books and take your favorite meanings from each and jot them down,To worry about reversals right away it will only confuse you..Study,study,practice,practice
It dont click in right away,start looking at the cards and see what each card means to you then jot them down
Memorize your own meanings.Once you have this down move on to reversals,then the real key to readings linking the cards togethet to form the reading...Give it a year or two
Its a system

Joanne Bunning has some good books and Paul Huson mystical origins of the Tarot is a must have in my opinion
Paul had also written on of the only real books of Witchcraft ever published to this day.
