Moby-Dick: I’m shelving Moby-Dick for now. I am absolutely enjoying the book, but I feel my mind wandering. It isn’t wandering because I’m bored or overwhelmed. I just find I am making myself read a little bit of Moby-Dick so I can get back to The Game of Thrones. This means I’m not really focusing on what I’m reading. I want to fully immerse myself in both novels, but I cannot. Maybe if I quit my job and hired a nanny and a maid, but that isn’t really feasible.
What’s Up Next: I swear I will take a break and read something else before digging into A Clash of Kings. I WILL read my Classics Club Spin book (The Professor) and Trollope’s Doctor Thorne.
General Malaise: I am so behind on reading. I see so many folks finishing book after book. Granted my reads are a bit thicker now, but still! I feel like such a fakey-fake book girl. To compound the problem I have an intense desire to go book shopping, and to go to the library, and to pretty much overwhelm my life with books. I may have to break up with book blogs for a while; they just seem to underscore my stagnation. Except I’m not stagnate! I am reading for at least an hour to three hours a day, but I am having trouble completing things as quickly as I’d like. I’m whining (stamps foot).
