Why I hate reading………
There are so many good books out there and there’s not enough of me to read all of them.
I thought to stop here. I know you’d understand, you have your own list, but like you, I have a blog and like to express my self. So…
My sister-in-law introduced me to a couple of new authors, one of which is Carolyn Haines of the Sarah Boot Delaney Mysteries.
I haven’t finished the Harry Dresden series because I keep interrupting it with something else.
I listen to NPR. They always have a long list. Such as: Collegia Magica, The Spirit Lens. Or Larry Millett has a new novel, The Magic Bullet. He was inspired by John Dickson Carr. Yes, I want to check him out.
Of course there are how many fantasy and science fiction novels? I’d like to read more of the John Carter series. Did you know Wikipedia has a list of science fiction and a list fantasy authors? I’ll never run out.
I often find new authors at the library, like Tasha Alexander of And Only to Deceive.
I’ve found good books recommended by your reviews, like Impact by Douglas Preston.
Then there are your interesting blogs and the books you’re writing.
And the list goes on. I no sooner settle in to read one thing when something else comes up that I have to get – the list gets longer.
I’m dangerous in a book store. I went on vacation with some friends awhile back. We stayed in a cabin in the woods. I bought $50 worth of books just in case I had time to read. I bought a book at some little country grocery store. I don’t remember if I read all of the others, but I did read the one from the country store. It was the first of the Dragonlance Series.
All this reading wouldn’t be a problem if I could read a book a day. Unfortunately, my life doesn’t allow for that. So I guess my compliant isn’t that I hat reading; I hate not having enough time to read.
I know you understand.
What do you want to read, but haven’t gotten to yet?
Man, i have a terribly long list of books I’d love to read. I should have time, its more lack of motivation. Even to do something I enjoy! I haven’t done many things I enjoy for a while. I miss it, I started trying again last night when I couldn’t fall asleep. I wrote, I read. It was nice. I passed out at 5:30 am.
Hope after all the fun, sleep was sweet.
Sleep isn’t so good right now. I woke up just a few hours later, still tired. In fact, I’m still tired, haha. I just tried to take a nap but my mind wouldn’t let me.
I know how that can happen. I envy those who just put their heads down and sleep.
When I can’t sleep, I watch TV. I listen to it with my eyes closed and fall asleep. It gives my brain something else to do besides think.
I had more bad sleep again tonight. I fell asleep talking to someone on messenger on my phone.Woke back up, told him goodnight, and think I got some sleep at 2:30. However, I woke up at 6:30.
