Have you ever had one of those weeks where you had everything planned only to have it all go kablooey on you? Bah. This is why planning never works especially for someone who is afflicted with some form of an attention deficit disorder. I had four books on the go last week, but only managed to finished one. I wasn’t even able to touch a couple of them, but I am, however, in the midst of An Ember in the Ashes.
Because I’m completely useless when it comes to keeping track of book release dates, I’ve had to re-prioritize my reading queues. So that’s what happened last week. I tell ya, a couple of years into blogging, I promised myself I will not submit to any type of reading pressure whatsoever. But look at me now. It’s different this time around, though. For some reason, I don’t feel nearly as overwhelmed. I mean the books that I’ve been getting for reviews are books that I wanted to read anyway, so it’s not like I’m forced to read them. I think that was the problem a couple of years ago.
As time goes by, I’ve noticed that I’ve become hungrier. I’m pushing myself to read more, not because of a goal, but for the simple fact that I can’t get enough. Has this ever happened to you? Have you reached a point in your book-loving life when reading has become as addictive as exercising is to gym rats?
This week, the books on my pile are review copies. I wanted to get ahead because there are way too many books that I’ve been meaning to read for a while now. I wanted to catch up with In Death series, and read a few of Sandra Brown’s backlist.
