So I’m halfway through March Madness and here are a few things I’ve learned:
play Temple Run 2 procrastinate too much
~ It is impossible to read while blow-drying your hair
~ it is possible to read while applying makeup but not advisable
~ having March Madness coincide with the last two episodes of True Detective was not helpful. Once you start reading all those online opinion pieces you can’t stop and precious reading hours are lost
~ if I had used the time I have spent reading Peppa Pig’s Big Day Out over the last two weeks reading my chosen 10 books, I would be finished already. Honestly, one day it was 8 TIMES IN A ROW…
~ Ender’s Game represents 2 hours of my life that I will never get back. I spent the whole time thinking, ‘I could be reading, I could be reading…’
~ there is a reason I read an average of 4 books a month. I just don’t have the time for this amount of reading, although I would love to
So, to bring you up to speed, I have read 5 of my chosen 10 and am a third of the way through my 6th. I will check back next week to review The Ice Princess by Camilla Lackberg and This is Water by Davis Foster Wallace (which felt like it shouldn’t count as I read it in 20 minutes). In the meantime you can follow my progress on Twitter – @cathy746books – and we can all rejoice that I am now into the 720’s!
I am a 40 something book buying addict trying to reduce the backlog one book at a time!
