Challenges:

Total pages read this week: 121

Total # of books for the year: 9 of 85.  I don’t know what’s going on with me, but I think Anna Karenina pushed me into a reading slump.  I’ve been spending most of my time meditating, trying to catch up on chores around the apartment, watching “The Crown” when the Boyfriend isn’t home, and “Star Trek: The Next Generation” with him when he is, and spending time playing Dresden’s favorite game, “mousey” (he loves stalking and pouncing on a toy mouse attached to an elastic string that I use to drag it around like it’s trying to escape from getting eaten).  I’ve also been catching up on my favorite podcasts or listening to music instead of an audiobook.

Total pages read this week: 507

Total # of books for the year: 9 of 85.  I FINALLY finished Anna Karenina!  I was also determined to finish The Mermaid’s Sister before starting A Curious Beginning.  I knew if I didn’t, I would probably never start A Curious Beginning before it was due back at the library.  I placed it on hold a month or so ago, and I got the email on Saturday that it was available for download.  The only problem is that I only get it for 21 days and there are 3 others waiting for it behind me, so I won’t be able to renew it, if need be, for quite a while.  I’m really not sure why ebooks follow the same rules as physical books, but that’s how it is, so I must read it while I have the chance.
