So Bout of Books is officially over – how did I do?
Well, I did great the first half of the week – I read Monday night when I got out of work, read all Tuesday morning before I went into work, was exhausted Wednesday night after work & went to bed early without reading at all – not even on my work breaks. Woke up Thursday feeling as if a freight train had hit me, and slept pretty much all day Thursday and Friday. I read about 20 pages total those two days.
Saturday I felt a little better, I did a little work on the blog and wrote a couple of reviews for the two books I finished, went out and ran some errands, but by that night I felt a lot worse again… just couldn’t breath.
I ended up going to the doctor’s on Sunday and I have an unknown sinus / lung “issue” that isn’t infectious but is causing me to not be able to breathe, which is causing my exhaustion. I’m on predisone and some other heavy drugs to help open up my airways, and I have a regular doctor’s appointment on Thursday for a follow up. I’m feeling better after the predisone, but I still can’t breath right, so I’m exhausted, and my blue lips are very attractive, so I’m told… 🙂
Needless to say, I didn’t read at all on Saturday and Sunday; I just couldn’t concentrate.
So my goal was…
I’m planning on reading at least one of my Christmas gift books, one book I borrowed from my father in law, and I’d like to try to finish three of the books I’m currently reading
How did I do?
Well, I didn’t read any of my Christmas books, I didn’t read any of the books I borrowed from my FIL, but I did manage to finish Wallis, In the Belly of the Elephant, the Christmas Carol, and read a little more of the Last Bastion. So overall I’m pleased with my reading – I finished two review books, and one book just for me.
