Bob's probably dreaming about the JETS game later on today. He's a big football fan. It's one of his favorite things about the Fall season! He's a little upset because his favorite jersey doesn't fit him anymore! Bob has become Bigger Sexy Bob. I think the Vet will probably want us to put him on a diet. Oy!
I hit a bit of a reading slump this week. I hate when this happens...and I'm in the midst of reading some good books. It was liked I suddenly had very little interest in anything I was reading or in reading at all! I think I was more concerned about the medical procedure I was scheduled to have on Tuesday. It was canceled because the machines the hospitals uses weren't working. It sounds strange since it's a major hospital! Maybe it's something like a computer glitch. So, now the procedure is scheduled for October 25th. I have a lot of other things on my mind, too. Maybe that's that problem. I have to figure out how to empty my brain!
I'm still reading The Sea of Poppies by Amitav Ghosh as part of Erin Reads Reading Buddies project. It's an interesting and very well written book. There are several different story lines involving a large number of characters. I am having difficulty connecting with the characters. I noticed that when I hit the midpoint of the book or just after, the characters stories and their personalities seemed to open up more. Hopefully when I'm able to pull myself out of this reading slump The Sea of Poppies will prove very readable. The True Memoirs of Little K by Adrienne Sharp, for the Book Club run by Jen of Devourer of Books and Nicole of Linus' Blanket, is very good. Little K is a passionate, very opinionated and obsessive character. She's lot of fun!
Today I'm trying to finish two books The Grief of Others by Leah Hager Cohen which is a very good book about a family dealing with a shared tragedy as well as their individual issues. Finally, I'm reluctant to finish The Radleys by Matt Haig because I'm enjoying it so much but there's only so long you delay the inevitable! Maybe these books will help me conquer my reading slump today!
What are you reading today?
Everybody else, have a great Sunday! Happy Reading!
