I started to realize my reading was slowing down. I'm not sure what to attribute it to exactly except maybe some type of burnout and the fact that I have felt like my work has been overwhelming me lately and I haven't been able to keep up. So I had this great plan that I would space out my reviews a little more than usual this month and by doing so I could use only the reviews I already had written. Then I could just read, read, read this month and have tons more reviews to choose from in the coming months. What I didn't anticipate was that my reading would slow even more! I haven't finished a book since May 1st which makes it now two weeks officially. I never go that long without finishing one! Normally I'd have read four to six by now! So that sort of spoils the plan of having tons to choose from for next month. So now I need to come up with a back up plan.
Part of the reason I haven't accomplished much of anything in the past week or so is I randomly became sick this past week, but worse than usual. I had a fever and was practically immobile a couple days. But instead of listening to my body, I tried to push myself to work. Well, even when I did stay home, I wasn't doing anything even remotely using my brain because I was too tired even for that. And like I said, the week prior to that I felt overwhelmed with work.
So, hopefully things will pick up this week. I keep getting amazing books in the mail that I'm so excited to read! OH! And because I haven't been reading or using my brain much, I also haven't been online much and that means not commenting as much as I've wanted. No worries, though. While I'm a little behind, I still plan on catching up on some blogs!
Hope everyone's getting more reading done than I am! ;)
