Total pages read: 643 – This is for the past couple of weeks and is just a guesstimate since I wasn’t keeping track of my pages read after my laptop went down.
Total # of books for the year: 16. With everything going on, I haven’t done much reading. There were several days in a row in which I didn’t read at all. Every time I thought about picking up a book, all I could see were the boxes still needing to be unpacked and all the stuff that needed to be organized and put away. No matter how smooth a move goes, it seems inevitable that some things get misplaced and end up being found in the most random of places. I am not someone that handles that type of chaos very well, and so I couldn’t justify the reading time I desperately needed until most, if not all, of my new apartment was put in order. I also had to get my laptop back up and running with a fresh install and then take the time to reinstall all the drivers and download what felt like endless updates. I’m still not done since I need to transfer my files from my external hard drive and install all the programs I use. On top of that, I’ve got a stomach bug that has kept me from doing much of anything, including running my weekly errands. So, this week will probably be light on the reading as well, as I catch up with the grocery shopping, laundry, and other adult things that I wish I had the money to pay someone else to do so I could read.
