Sniff

What is it about colds that make it so hard to read? You'd think that when you're feeling under the weather and don't really have any desire to do much else besides lay on the sofa that that would be the ideal time to lose yourself in a book. Unfortunately, it just doesn't work that way for me, so my reading time hasn't been taken advantage of today. Hopefully I'll be feeling better tomorrow...

I'm reading Blackbird House by Alice Hoffman and am enjoying it when I feel like reading it.

My reading time is either getting ready to take a plunge or get boosted in the next few weeks. I was offered a job at our downtown library on Friday (yay!) and am going to start taking advantage of the Park & Ride service instead of driving, to save my sanity and, more importantly, on gas. Hopefully this is going to give me prime reading time before and after work, but I may also use it for knitting/crocheting. That would almost be the best of both worlds, though, since I could listen to an audiobook while knitting. I'm sure I'll get all obsessive about how I divide that time. Reading in the morning, audiobook/knitting in the evenings? Reading one day, audiobook the next? I'm sure I'll find some way to make this way more complex than it needs to be!

I read on the bus twice a day! That's where I do a majority of my reading I love it!

I'm the same way when I have a cold. It's just hard to concentrate for me. Congratulations on the job. I'm a little envious of the free time while commuting. I always have a difficult time deciding how to divide my time between reading and knitting. Although it usually works out that I knit a lot more during the winter months than I do in the summer months.

I can't read with a cold either. The headache gets in the way. Hope you're better soon.
