most of them are mindless drivel that i take out from the library by the dozens.
normally i don't read to think.... i read to relax and escape my brain constantly running through any possible thing it can.
give me a silly book and i forget about everything else for just a little while.
i always read before i go to sleep, whether it be a nap or for the night... 10 or 15 minutes of reading helps me relax.
i also like to read during commercials if i'm watching tv... or if i'm not really watching tv i will just read with the tv on (not sure what the point is of that, but thats just how i roll sometimes).
last weekend was pretty hectic for me and i ended up running around like a crazy person for most of it.
sunday i had to work in the morning then off to the lab to do my gestational diabetes test. for anyone that doesn't know what that entails, you drink a
to pass the time i took with me a book that was not my standard mindless fluff. i was not super optimistic. i'll be honest... i took a backup book in my purse. i sat down and started reading. i did not put the book down until they called me to get my blood taken.
then i went home, scarfed down some food while reading the book.
then i went up to bed and read the book for another half an hour before i took a nap
then i woke up and read for another 10 minutes
then i went downstairs to make dinner
then i ate my dinner while reading the book.
and pretended to watch tv while i read the book.
then i decided to go to bed. so i put the dogs outside and read the book while i waited for them to do their business.
then i set the book on my pillow and brushed my teeth... while thinking about the book.
then i read for half an hour.
then i put the book on my night table and turned out the light.
10 minutes passed
then i turned the light beside the bed back on and started reading again.
15 minutes go by...
by this point i have maybe 15 pages left.
what the hell... i'm just going to finish it. how could i leave it at that.
so needless to say, i went to bed a bit later than i had originally planned to...
still at a respectable time and only about half an hour later than normal since i had attempted to go to bed early that night... but when i find a book like that i just can't help myself.
wondering what book i was reading?
Water For Elephants
i absolutely LOVED this book.
the last time i read a book this obsessively was the second last harry potter book which i got at midnight, went home and read it until i was finished.
i don't know what exactly about it made me love this book so much, but i think i will actually go buy it and add it to my book collection. it totally captivated me.
i will definitely read it again. and probably again and again after that.
i am interested to see what the movie is like.
it comes out on DVD/Blu-Ray the beginning of september and i am most likely going to add that to my collection too.
even if it is HALF as good as the book it will be a great movie.
