Is there any interest in your life that easily distracts you from getting anything done. Like cleaning or getting dressed or feeding your kids (ok maybe not that last one). But just something that you know you can’t do all the time because you would not complete any task ever again if you kept at it.
Mine is reading. I love a good book! I love all different kinds as long as it has a really compelling story. Something that keeps you turning page after page. I don’t like scary books or ones with a lot of filth I just find those to be a waste of time. it has to get me at the beginning and be one of those books that I think of way longer than after I turn that last page.
When I find that book that just speaks to me and takes me away from the gigantic laundry pile and the most unorganized cupboards you have ever seen you might as well lock me in a room and throw away the key. I have the hardest time putting it down and find myself treating the book like it is a race. Like I will get some amazing treat when I am done. Which is just the opposite instead everything I put off is waiting for me smirking at me and taunting me obnoxiously.
I wish I could just read for a certain amount of time a day and then say ok back to the real world. That is difficult. This is why I don’t read a lot. I distance my books and only will keep reading a book if I really like it.
I have been reading a few books lately. Which means I have stayed up way into the night with sore eyes trying to pass the finish line of the book so I can move on with my life.
My poor husband is very understanding but I am sure he get’s excited when he sees me nearing the end so he can actually get his wife back.
I wanted to share a few good books that I have recently read just because they are too good not to share and what is a good book if it’s not read by a lot of people?
