why do i feel so inspired to read when i can't possibly read, and never inspired to read when it's available to me?
yes, yes, i am still struggling with finding reading time since the commute was stolen from me. (i am very bitter. nope.)
last night i thought "this is it!"
let me set the scene:
10pm. the house blanketed in peace. joel fast asleep...new lamps on either side of our couch. all other lights off - all sights and sounds feel very library-esque. my book beckons (remember i am still really trying to get into this book i promised joel i would read (see left) ), only my computer is right on the way to my book. i can't go to bed because i have clothes drying in the communal laundry room. i have to stay up...so yeah, the computer is the most logical choice.
i am not a tv watcher, really. i mean, i don't just sit and peruse through tv, we don't even have it. but i can watch certain series IF i have them. since i don't have any i am watching, i am not even tempted by the tv. instead, my bane is the computer. it sucks my time like no one else, i will shop, chat, read, research, shop, chat, and shop.
all this shopping steals my reading.
and now, as i sit at my quiet cubicle at this souless mortgage banking company, i realize that i want for nothing other than a comfortable chair, a big cinnamon roll and coffee, and my book. even if it is Robert Jordan.
and i have to finish it because i think i decided that my next bookling is A Wrinkle In Time. Yes, i have never read it! (and i just realized that i don't own it! gasp.)
in other bookling news, today David Sedaris' new book, When you are engulfed in flames is released. Third Place Books in Seattle is hosting a reading by Sedaris, and you get two free tickets (tickets required) when you purchase a copy of the book. i have done this! yay, i love book readings and i happen to really laugh with Sedaris.
if i can't read today, i wish it for you, sweet sweet soul.
