Monday Morning Question: Not able to read?


Good Monday morning everyone.  Hope you had a good weekend, Saturday I was able to finish up my re-read of A Discovery of Witches and start Shadow of Night in anticipation of the release of Book of Life tomorrow!!!  Sunday did not go as well and I did not get as far into book two as I would have liked.  I was running a fever and did nothing but sleep on the couch, didn’t even want to read. Feeling better today, but we have entered my busiest week of the year.  Fair week.  I have something, multiple somethings going on every single day this week….  So I am not going to be able to start book three on Tuesday.  Oh well, it will still be mine and I should be able to start before the end of the week.  So this morning I ask are there ever times when you are not able to read?  Don’t want to read?  How do you feel about it?  I resent the hell out of it, especially when there is something I really want to read.  There may be some late nights ahead, but even then I can’t do that multiple days in a row.  Love fair week, and my birthday on Thursday isn’t too bad either (turning 40), but wish my most anticipated read of several years wasn’t being released at the same time.   Well this is going to be a short post as I have a doctor’s appointment to start off the craziness.  Happy reading everyone.

  1. I get SO frustrated when I don’t get to read every day. It puts me in a foul mood by the end of the week if I haven’t had adequate reading time for myself. There are always factors that keep me from reading every night, whether it’s my daughter staying up later, being too tired, etc. I try to read before bed each night, but it just doesn’t always happen. That is my much needed downtime and it frustrates me if I miss out on it. I have tried reading on my lunch breaks at work to make sure I get some reading in every day, if I know it will be impossible in the evening.

    I just have so many books to read and not enough time. I often wish I could be someone that survived on just a few hours of sleep (but I require at least 6 hours to function), or was able to get up earlier than normal to read (but I hit snooze until the last minute every day).


    1. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if reading could be as restful as sleep, replacing the need for sleep. Imagine all the books we could get through. The week hasn’t gotten much better, have barely made it trough 100 pages. Need to get some reading in.
