I somehow read over 100 pages again yesterday...Go me! It's frustrating because I want to be reading a lot...I'm literally laying around in bed all day and I got news from the doctor yesterday that while my infection is pretty much cleared, it really set back my recovery time so I'm looking at at least 2 more weeks of laying around doing nothing...sigh. But it is sooo hard to focus on these painkillers! Even if I just woke up from a nap, I read 5 pages and I can't seem to keep my eyes open and then I jerk awake because I just fell asleep and dropped my book on the floor and the sound woke me up, lol. I keep longingly looking at all my 800+ page unread books on my shelf, thinking, "I have all the time in the world, I could probably read you in like, two days." But I can't. And it's kinda pissing me off.
I feel like I'm wasting away doing nothing but watching YouTube makeup videos and watching Netflix (usually falling asleep through anything over 15 minutes long as well). Reading is pretty much my favorite pastime, and it's honestly one of the few things that's managing to cheer me up right now. On the rare occasion that I can focus for an extended period of time, I almost forget about the pain I'm in and how bored and lonely I am. I love laying here with a candle burning and a cup of tea in my hand, escaping reality. Even the cheesy chick-lit I'm reading has been wonderful, because I can get lost in the character's drama and forget my own problems. I just really wish I could do it more often right now.
I hate to be so whiny, but this site is kind of my book journal so that's why I'm venting my current book-related frustrations. I'm planning on doing some reading now...I want to finish Sugar and Spice by Lauren Conrad tonight, because I'm really enjoying the series and I'm eager to see how it ends. But that would mean reading about 280 pages/close to 3 hours of reading, and I don't know if that's going to happen. But I'm sure gonna try! :)
