What Are You Reading?

Posted by MANDI at 12:39 PM
I don't know about you, but some weeks I struggle to find anything I want to read.

This isn't one of those weeks...

I read The Hunger Games earlier in the week. It only took a few chapters to completely pull me in. Then I went back to the shop yesterday and bought the second and third books in the trilogy. And read them both. Yesterday.

And now Hubby is totally refusing to listen to my "I'm tired and my eyes hurt" whining. He says that if I got up and put my glasses on when I picked up the first book, and maybe didn't read the second book the same day, and definitely didn't stay up till after midnight so I could finish it then perhaps my eyes wouldn't hurt and I wouldn't be so tired. And while I can see that he might, just maybe, have a point I can't let him know that!

Oh I wish I had time to read... The only thing I read these days is magazines (usually food ones), work things and sometimes books like "Save our Sleep Toddler" rivoting I know!

Hello!!!!! I know, it's been such a long time since I've visited your blog (and mine too for that matter!) so I've just spent a little while catching up on all your news. I hope your health issues are all sorted and that the kids are now well and truly settled into school. Seems I've had similar issues as you mentioned with my Miss E going into year 1.
As for reading....I have just given up on The Road by Cormac McCarthy. I very, very rarely give up on a book, but this one just seemed like it was going to be dark and depressing the whole way through, with no redeeming qualities, wise observations or anything to justify me finishing it. So next on my very large pile is a book called Martin Sloane. I've no idea what it's about yet, it was chosen by a bookgroup member, I'll let you know how it goes.
