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.

What are you reading this week?

  1. Reading slumps are the worst! When that happens to me, I pick up a book to read which is an old favorite. I hope you get out of your slump!
    What is this meditation challenge? I’d love to learn more.
    I’m reading A Study in Charlotte and The Vagina Monologues right now. They are both wonderful in very different ways.
