I had a tiny little Twitter conversation with Kelly of The Written World where we were moaning about not being too drawn into our books this past while and starting lots, but not finishing any. She said, "Maybe we're just tired of reading."
What? Did she really say that?? Tired of reading? Me? Us? Is that even possible!!??
But then I thought, hmmm... you know what.... I think that perhaps she's right. What a weird thought that is, but perhaps I'm just tired of reading. Maybe it's time to haul out the sewing machine and quilt something for Christmas. Maybe I should catch up on some scrapbooks. Maybe I should jump into the Christmas prep wholeheartedly, without complaining, and actually have fun with it.
Maybe I should stop stressing about getting challenges done by year's end, or reaching some 100 books read goal (no way that's going to happen this year!) Maybe I should stop reading what I feel must/needs to be read, and only read what I want to.
What if I went for a whole week without reading? No, now that's just going to far!
Have you ever been just plain old sick and tired of reading? Do you ever take a week off? How'd it go?
Books I am reading/should be reading this Sunday:
Hide and Seek by Wilkie Collins: my post for this book for The Classics Circuit will be up on Dec. 8. Be sure to drop by then. I'm enjoying the book, it's just not grabbing me, you know. But I will finish and have a post.
The Fatal Waltz by Tasha Alexander: I need to get this borrowed book back to it's owner. And I'm halfway done, and I'm just not into it.
The Outlaws of Sherwood by Robin McKinley: I grabbed this one because it fit into my purse, and I needed something on the run. But so far, I have no idea what's happening. But I know I'm going to love it... soon.
Farworld: Land Keep by J. Scott Savage: The treadmill book. Just a few more pages! And I have been loving it. Very exciting, fast paced story. After tomorrow's walking session, I'll have figure out a new treadmill book.
