Has another week passed already?!? As I write this late on a Monday night, I realize that I am approaching a terrible reading slump! My reading is so rare these days that this portion of my weekly ramblings is going to get very dull, very quick!
I am STILL reading The Passage by Justin Cronin. With last week being the FrightFall Readathon, I was really hoping to get in some fabulous reading, but it was not meant to be. I read a grand total of 59 pages! That is an average of a little more than 8 pages a day. Ugh!!
There is really not much to report in the writing world either! The most exciting news of the week was that I went to another journaling meeting this evening. I love hearing the words and stories of others, and it really helps to motivate and inspire me. Last time, my writing increased for the week or two afterwards. I guess we will see if I have a similar result this time around!
Life ... I am trudging along. Work is busy. Kids' activities are busy. There is nothing extraordinary to report this week to be quite honest. Therefore, I am going to log off and attempt to read at least another 8 pages in The Passage! Have a great week!
Tell Me: How was your week? Was it as uneventful as mine? What spooky reads are you reading this month?
Sorry to hear that you may be on the verge of a reading slump. It's depressing when nothing looks good or can hold your interest. Hope you find something to grab you and propel you out of the slump! As for me...I've been able to read, but can't seem to motivate myself to write reviews. I'm blaming the cold weather. :)ReplyDelete
Alexia561 ... I think it started with just a lack of time, and it has gone downhill from there! Writing has been affected as well, but not quite as much. Sounds like both of us need a bit of luck these days!! :)Delete
I'd be joining you in that reading slump if not for audio books. Mostly I'm listening while washing dishes or driving. By the time late afternoon rolls around, I'm just too tired to read.ReplyDelete
Amateur Novelist ... That is exactly my issue! I am so exhausted lately by the time I usually pick up my book at night that I end up just going to sleep. I REALLY need to get back into audios!Delete
Tif, that's all that I'm doing. I haven't read a book in a few weeks! I've started doing audio books when I clean the kitchen, which is twice a day. That's about an hour of listening a day. :)ReplyDelete
Amateur Novelist ... If I could get back into listening on my commute, I would have at least that if not more! I vow to pick up an audio the next time I'm at the library!Delete
You guys don't have OverDrive? I no longer get CDs if I can help it. Downloading is SO much easier.Delete
Amateur Novelist ... Don't laugh, but I have no idea what OverDrive is!! I am old school with CDs or do the playaways!Delete
Not laughing! Lots of patrons don't know and that says so much about the library staff! :(Delete
You are with the St. Louis Public Library, correct? If so, here's the link: http://getitnow.slpl.org/D822771F-AE8B-4B11-98D7-285841B40C98/10/506/en/BrowseAudio.htm
Your library calls it "Get It Now," but that's an OverDrive service. You can download audiobooks, ebooks and movies without having to "go" to your library. The service has finally upgraded to where you can virtually send the item back with done verses wait the time allotted.
Amateur Novelist ... Wow! Thank you so much for the info! I'm not sure where I would download this, but I am going to definitely look at my options. Love this idea!Delete
There should be info on the website along with compatible devices. This service has save me so much time...and money!Delete
Amateur Novelist ... Definitely something that I could use!! :)Delete
