Back in the Game!

The past two Sunday Salon Posts I have posted have been about how I can't get into reading. Thanks to many of your helpful suggestions, I am back again! Thank you to all who suggested things. I will probably have to refer to your helpful suggestions many more times.

I has The Little Prince sitting on my shelf of borrowed books. I had planned to read it as my classic for the month, and for Dewey's Books challenge. In two sittings, it was done. It very much reminded me of Alice in Wonderland. This made me feel accomplished, so I started reading All I Ever Needed to Know About Being A Girl I Learned From Judy Bloon, a book of essays about the effect Bloom's book have had on various female writers.

I decided to abandon any other books I had attempted to read over the past few weeks, The Pillars of the Earth, The Notebook, and all! I'm starting fresh now. I have a new stack of library books to prove it, they are light but interesting reads. And get this, mostly nonfiction!

Right now I'm reading two books that have me equally entertained. My life has suddenly gotten a bit more crazy. A new semester of the classes I am taking at the community college along with normal high school classes has begun. I'm glad to be reading and taking notes again! My high school classes haven't offered much to me. For the first time this school year, I read out of a textbook last week.

Reading funks feel terrible but they do eventually pass. Glad you're starting to enjoy reading again.
