Reading More or Less???

I might have screwed up.  I planned on reading 150 books this year.  Doesn’t seem like a lot, right?  I’ve done that before.  Yet, when the shit hit the fan and we were quarantined at home, my book reading tanked.

I understand this pandemic will be over – eventually.  But right now reading just isn’t hitting me like it used too.  Does that make sense?  Of course, I want an escape from all this.  Yet nothing is really grabbing me and keeping my interest.  Yes, I want to read – I just have no desire to read.  Which is killing me.

Maybe I sabotaged myself because when this all went down I was like – Ohh, I’m going to read all my TBR books and ebooks on my kindle.  Jinxing myself.  Way to go!

This week I’ve been puppy and pool sitting.  High hopes that I could sit by the pool and read.  The puppy had other ideas and we ended up playing hours of fetch.  My right arm is now sore from tossing a bone.  And this too shall pass!   Once she was tuckered out, I was able to grab my book, JINX by Flora Burgos.  Yes its a novella, it was perfect to whet my appetite back to books.

Are you struggling with anything during this pandemic?  Reading?  Mentally being separated from family and friends?  Health?  Job?  Life?

I keep reminding myself that this too shall pass.


I hope sooner rather than later.

Stay safe.
