I read a book this week: Ex Libris by Anne Fadiman. The review will be up tomorrow or Tuesday. It feels like an accomplishment because it’s third week of January and I’ve only read three books! Two of which were very small and short. It’s been a busy month as I try to improve my job hunt and do some reflections on my life.
Even though I wrote about fanfiction last week, I’ve banned myself from reading it for a time. It’s very distracting. It’s not the only thing I’ve had to reign my control on such as spending less and watching less Youtube. I am also going to try and not buy as many used books this year if at all as I am too much of a secondhand book fair junkie.
I still have lots of books to read, and I’m trying to encourage myself to hit my TBR and library pile. Reading about reading makes me want to read more again. I had to force myself not to start a book, but I still need to finish reading Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell. Whenever books are on my Kindle, I tend to forget about them. I see the Kindle on my desk, but I forget that there is a book that I should finish or read from it. With real books I can see where I am and they call my attention. The Kindle not so much.
As I am feeling tired and lazy today, I’ll do some writing and reading now.
What are you reading today?
Have a good week, everyone!
Please don’t tell me that it’s the third week of April! Bad enough that it’s the third week of January! ;->
Here is my Sunday Salon. I hope you will stop by!
Hi Deb! Oops! I don’t know why I wrote April, but it’s been corrected. Thanks!
I was thinking the same thing as Deb!
I’m trying to get my impulses under control too. I love checking books out from the library but I really need to stop and read more books from my tbr pile. I’ve been reading from my Nook this week but usually I’m ignoring it unless I’m listening to music on it. Have a good week. 😉
Hi Vasilly! I’m a library addict too, and I have two big piles from the library that I should get through. Sigh. I keep checking them out too. Have a lovely week!
With the snow here in the UK I have had the perfect excuse to stay indoors under a blanket reading, in fact I finished two books over the weekend! Looks like we’re both having good reading months 🙂
Hi Jessica! We are experiencing one of the worse cold snaps in years, but I’m mostly spending it with TV and knitting. Thanks!
