Reading While Sick

I hope you all had a great Christmas/holiday break. My break was spent in bed sick while trying to take care of sick kids. My husband is sick too but he returned to work yesterday.  Christmas evening we were all in bed by 9:30pm. Rare for our household. Needless to say, it’s been quite an interesting few days.

I’ve been slugging along towards my 2012 reading goal even though I know I won’t finish it.  I think I’ll be happy if I end the year with 80 books read. That means only 3 more books to read within 5 more days.

Since my cold makes it hard to concentrate, I’ve been taking the easy way out and reading some lighter fare. I’ve discovered a new culinary theme cozy mystery with Footprints in the Sand by Mary Jane Clark. Next on deck, when I my sinuses allow me to read, is another food based novel, Vanity Fare: A novel of lattes, literature, and love by Megan Caldwell.

Hopefully by the time I finish Vanity Fare, I will have recovered from this cold. I think I’ll try to tackle at least one book from my currently reading list on GoodReads. One of them have been on the list since April! Yikes.

I also hope to post a couple of more reviews by the end of the year.

How are you finishing out 2012?

  1. I feel for you. Been fighting vertigo for the last week and half, which makes reading really interesting. Had lots of time to do it, but little stomach for it. I know I’m behind goal for reading this year, but I’m okay. It was still better than the previous year. BTW, I did read Vanity Fare a couple weeks ago. Cute light read–I think you’ll enjoy it. :) Hope you all feel better soon!

  2. I hope you’re feeling 100% soon. Being ill is a great excuse to lounge about in bed and read..but it’s still no fun!
