On Saturday during the read-athon, I finished two books, Stephenie Meyers’s “Breaking Dawn” and Jane Yolen’s “Briar Rose.” I was within 25 pages of hitting 1,000 pages that day, but I just couldn’t do more. Since then I’ve read maybe 80 pages of “Capote in Kansas” by Kim Powers. Although I’m enjoying “Capote in Kansas,” I’m feeling a bit of a reading funk. In order to try to remedy this, I’m imposing a reading semi-ban through Friday.
I will allow myself to work through “Capote in Kansas” during lunch time or if I get cold enough to take a hot bath at night, but that’s it. Any time I’m at home, if I want entertainment, it will be television and popcap.com games, all the way. I may not be as good at getting on LibraryThing or my Google Reader either, so if there’s something I really should see, feel free to email me.
Oh, and don’t expect any reviews this week. They’ll be back next week. I may update how this challenge is going, and I’ll likely post for the Tuesday Thingers and Booking Through Thursday memes, but this will be a quiet week here.
Why am I doing this? Simple. I figure after a week of TV I’ll be so glad to get back to my books that I’ll forget this funk ever existed.
Neither ‘funk’ nor ‘reading funk’ turned up anything interesting in google image search. =(
