I got on to a really good reading kick a little while back.
The local library is just across the way from my office so it was nothing to saunter across to return my books, borrow some more and settle in at home for some reading time.
One week I was so enthralled with my books, my blog reader [ie. feedly] was completely out of control and in four figures while I eschewed online for the printed page.
As easily as it began, I’ve slipped out of this habit*. I returned my books but didn’t bring home any more. And I can’t quite bring myself to buy one that I know I will probably only read once.
But I have a holidays coming up and surely, some days languishing with a good book will be high on the agenda.
What are you reading at the moment? Or got a long-held favourite? Got any recommendations?
PS. Sir Richard Steele was was an Irish writer and politician from the 17th century, remembered as co-founder, with his friend Joseph Addison, of the magazine The Spectator.
* Not sure reading free romance novels on my iPad Kindle app while the husband watches the football counts as reading, or good exercise for the mind at any rate!
After missing last week’s round-up [I’ll admit it, I was busy having too much fun!], I was determined to make it to this week’s post. My Mac had other ideas and gave me nothing but grief for a good 45 minutes in the time allocated for writing this post! It might want to consider the intent of this post, too, so we can work together this year!
Anyways, here we are for another zesty round-up of weekend reading, and it’s an eclectic mix of interestingness this week.
