Yes, I’m fine without new books (for right now). As the holidays approach, I am finding myself more and more busy with life, teaching, and my editing apprenticeship…so there’s not a ton of time for reading, mainly because I usually fall asleep as soon as I start reading every night.
However, when I can stay awake, I am reading Erika Robuck’s forthcoming House of Hawthorne, which I can already characterize as rich and well-researched, and it has a beautiful cover.
I’m also working on a manuscript evaluation for my editing apprenticeship. I’ve got a full plate right now, it would seem!
So, back to reading and working, and focusing on getting everything done. Hopefully I’ll be visiting the Twittersphere again soon.
Great journey. Sounds like you learned a bit more about yourself and still no dearth of books. You’re an inspiration to add some restraint for the rest of us. Nicely done.
Well, thank you! I certainly have plenty of books to read and not enough time to read them. I might take a break from buying books for a longer time than just three months!
I’ve got the same problem. Being a student, there isn’t really much time left for reading. And falling asleep while reading is another problem a lot of us are suffering from. I liked your post, definitely thumbs up 👍
