Straggling between the lines

Me: And now, for some night reading.
Body: This bed is so comfy.
Brain logic: Pillow > Book. Shutting down… zzzzzz

(via All Other Things.)This has been me the past couple weeks. I seriously think I’m a borderline bookworm as of today since both my pile of overdue books and to-read list grow and grow and grow… Too many books and too little time!

I feel like I’ve been treading in a sea of school, dance rehearsals, and music practices, neglecting my favourite relaxing activity for the confused scramble of chasing things that I can’t always remember. It’s one of those hectic parts of life again. One with not so much sleep and lots of much missed reading.

Not just for books, but blogs as well. Ever since joining WP I have a growing realization of just how diverse the blogosphere is. There are less hours in day than needed to read everything I want to posted on that one day. So high fives all around to you bloggers, for producing the content that you do.

In the meantime, guess I’ll just keep carrying a book around everywhere as usual, in hopes of finding a few minutes to devour a chunk of text treasure.

Do you get reader’s block? What are you reading right now?

Thanks for reading,

  1. Yup, I do indeed gets readers block. It sucks. So many things I want to do and so little time.

  2. I don’t get reader’s block — and I’m going to tack on an “unfortunately” to that statement, because I’ve been known to read books to the detriment of the rest of my life. If I find a book I can’t put down, I actually don’t put it down. And then I fall behind on work and social commitments and it’s bad news bears. Lol.

    Right now? I’m reading The Friendship of Mortals by Audrey Driscoll (here’s a link, it’s currently free on Smashwords: It’s a very creepy, very interesting book about a young med student who dabbles in necromancy.

    • You’re very lucky, it’s an awful problem to have. I know what you mean, there have been many times where I tell myself, just this next chapter, or a few more pages, and end up finishing a book entirely. It’s an awesome feeling to be transported into a another world and back. Thanks for the link and stopping by, I’ll be sure to check it out!

  3. Tihihi! What a cute shot 😀 and readers block is my new fav expression :-p

  4. Love the photo. It’s brilliant!! I have just started reading “Composing A LIfe” by Mary Catherine Bateson. I read about it on a blog post and had to read it. I am only part way through the first chapter and I am loving it. She writes about the challenges of living in our rapidly changing world and needing to improvise to create our lives and be ever-changing and adaptable. I underline the books I read and already this book is using up a lot of ink.
    Thanks for visiting my blog by the way and the like.
