Hey everyone. I'm quite sorry I haven't been around lately. I've been busy and a bit down so reading hasn't much happened. I've been spending a lot of time distracting myself from those things that upset me. I know that reading should work perfectly for that, but for me it doesn't. It's a vicious cycle with me. I can't focus on reading when I'm depressed, and then I get depressed because I haven't been reading.
This week I'm off of school so I hope to work at least one more book into the month. I'm still reading A Question of Guilt, but I have to be honest I've not gotten very far. I've also picked up Ten Top Stories edited by David A. Sohn. This book was published in 1985 and a friend of mine at work told me to try it. It has the following short stories in it:
So Much Unfairness of Things
Hoods I have Known
See How They Run
Planet of the Condemned
Flowers for Algernon
The first story is Flowers for Algernon and I'm about halfway through it. See, not much reading getting done. Hopefully I'll at least be able to finish this book this month.
How has every one's January reading been? So far are you making your goals? Living up to your reading dreams? Or are you like me, good start and waning towards the end of the month?
