Me, Right Now

Me Right Now

Hello, all. Just thought I’d stop by to let you all know what I’m up to.

Not much.

I’ve been reading a thickish book and it’s taking me longer to read it than I thought it would (Summer of Night). It’s good but it’s slowing me down and my other reading is taking a backseat because of it. There are so many books I want to get to right now.

Also, I’m adjusting to having a college aged kid. He works a ton of hours and when he is off, he goes to school so we hardly see him. I was horrified to learn that he might have to work on Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving!!! Our day of PJs is in jeopardy. It’s like a very different world right now and it’s weird.

I find myself in this pensive mood lately. Quiet. Thoughtful. Pensive. Everything seems to have meaning to me. It’s a tad exhausting to be thinking all the time but I’ve been doing it. Maybe it’s my age. Maybe it’s just THAT time of year. It’s not a bad place to be in but time slips away from me and before I know it, another week has passed.

And, for whatever reason, I’ve lost all craving for meat. I seem to only want vegetables. This happened to me in my 20s and that led to a vegetarian, sometimes vegan diet for a good three years. Will it happen again? I wonder if it has to do with my iron levels being normal now.

That’s basically it. Things are good and quiet but different. How about you? What is going on with you right now?

Q&A

  • Reading on the couch or reading in bed?

I do both but I prefer the bed, while on my stomach with  my book or Kindle propped up on the pillow. But now, because of my neck I am not able to do this anymore. Sadness. Utter sadness.

  • Main character: Male or Female? 

I am more of a guy’s gal so I prefer a male POV.

  • Sweet or salty snacks while reading?

I cannot eat while reading. If I snack, it’s something savory but I’ll put the book down to eat it. I cannot stand smudgy prints on my book.

  • Trilogies or quartets? 

Honestly, these days? Neither. I always find that the first book is great and sometimes the last but the stuff in between not so much.

  • First Person or Third person POV? 

I like first person.

  • Night or morning reader? 

I am one of those extreme readers. I love reading very early in the morning and very late at night.  I think that those times are tied to solitude so there you go.

  • Libraries or bookstores? 

I’m torn! I love an old library but the ones by me are very modern and full of “talk” or study spaces. It’s a new age for libraries  but I  don’t get the warm fuzzies when walking into one. So, I guess I prefer a good bookstore. One with a coffee shop!

  • Books that make you laugh or books that make you cry? 

I have laughed out loud while reading. I guess I am easily amused but it takes a lot to make me cry. I prefer books that make me laugh.

  • Black or white book covers? 

I associate black covers with vampire novels so I prefer white although they probably get dirty pretty fast for most people. I carry my books in a Ziploc bag! I’m a freak!

  • Character driven or plot driven stories? 

Character driven all the way.
