Sunday Salon: November Reading Block

Sunday Salon

Hello everyone! Happy belated Thanksgiving to those celebrating it in the US.

I really need to wake up earlier, but I was actually a bit productive yesterday as I did some job stuff (did diddly all the rest of the week), fiddled, knit and even cleaned a bit.

Today, I anticipate a little of the aforementioned and reading Craig Thompson’s Habibi. I have been in a reading block lately so I am slowly making back to it by reading graphic novels. I am not sure if it is working, but at least I am reading something.

Does anyone else get this too? My other hobbies have been in the way and I am trying to be busy with other things. I still need to read about 13 more books to make my 75 for this year. I do get very bookish during the holidays though.

Have a good end of November, everybody!

    Oh, other stuff can definitely get in the way sometimes, and it’s really hard to enjoy reading a book when you only grab 5 or 10 minutes at a time. I’ve found graphic novels helpful at those times, because 10 minutes can be enough to take in a good chunk of the story, though no doubt it means not paying as much attention to the artwork as it deserves.

    Happy Sunday!

      Hi Kate! I agree that graphic novels are great for short reading and I really like the medium. It’s easier to read but it can offer the same poignancy as reading standard literature. Thanks!

      Hi Laurel! I think my issue is that other things get in the way and I lose some of the momentum of reading after I haven’t done it in awhile. Have a good week!

      Hi Lisa! The end of the year can be stressful for a lot of us so no wonder. Summer was my peak reading time and now I’m less inclined to it and have to focus on other things. I do like to blog and it does remind me to read again. Thanks!

      Hi Jessica! I think that has happened and life has gotten in the way of books. Hopefully I’ll be a super fast reader in December. Have a good week!
