I’m slightly in disbelief how little reading I am getting done this year. It doesn’t help that the days just pass by in a freaking whiff full of manic rush either chasing the kid or getting work done… BUt, I much rather the busyness than idle time. Idle time makes me nervous. But idle time would be mega good for reading…
Yet again, I am going to make an attempt at posting more often. People may not check this blog anymore, definitely not as many as used to, but I have a few great bookish friends who always check in on my reading so that’s one reason to pop up some updates.
At the moment.. I am reading, or I am attempting to read Shcwab’s Vengeful
The start, the handful of pages I have managed to read, have been good. Have you read it?
In the near future, I also want to post two things: 1. a Friday Five post about the five non-fiction posts that I came across on La La’s blog HERE and 2. a post about my amazing book loot that has been gathering for some time from this amazing second hand book shop in Estonia.
Know what’s really annoying me at the moment? There’s this situation on my Kindle where I have started to read 2 books and they’re both at like 3% and 4% and whilst I am really not feeling them at the moment, I don’t want to give up on them either. So, I don’t want to mark them as unread because I have read a bit of them, and I don’t want to remove them library either but I absolutely get the hives when I see these 2 books just lingering there at sad percent in my ebook library. Things have always, to this point, been in order. None of these weirdly loitering titles…
In other news, Estonia is going to get another heatwave – probably the last this summer and then it’s time for colorful forest views, bonfire smoke smell and raking leaves and smell of apples and fresh, fresh misty mornings. I noticed today that the swallows that were nesting in the eaves (eaves?) have suddenly disappeared. They were busy-busy, oh, about a week ago? maybe 2 weeks even? I guess that was the sign of them prepping to leave for the winter. Apart from the lovely autumn feels and excitement over first fresh snow, roll on new year… I’m ready for a new year now.
Oh man! You know what else is keeping me from reading, the little time I do have for myself? Bloody TV! I discovered Yellowstone TV series. I have been watching as much as I can and I yearn to experience the cowboy life. But not just that, the Native American culture is really something, too! And them views of nature in that show. Lordy lord… That show has me laughing and crying a million times during one episode. And… I never knew I could miss or pine after a place I have never been to. Weird. Do you have a place like this? A place you’ve seen on TV and you just feel how you really want and wish and should be there?
To finish off… I set my Goodreads challenge to 50 this year. Guess who is absolutely not going to make it? Since about 2013, I am NOT going to make it… hahaha…
