Normally I'm not too much of a complainer, but this has been quite possibly the most dismal week of my life. I've been through colds, allergies, broken bones and pregnancy - but no matter the illness, reading has always been an escape from sufferings little or large. Not so this time.
Apparently, a sinus infection I thought had been treated through a dose of antibiotics, had actually just moved from my sinus cavity to a space behind my eye-socket which sparked an infection in my tear ducts and the thin layer that covers the eye. OUCH that's all I can say. But 100% worse was realizing that reading was going to be completely out of the question for at least a week. Thankfully it seems to have completely cleared up, as I was on the verge of a book-withdrawal-breakdown.
So now I'm trying to get caught back up with my reading pile, which continued to grow even while I wasn't able to read. My wonderful hubby treated me to many bookshop trips while I was not feeling well, probably not the greatest thing for my TBR stack ... but oh well it was sweet!
So here is the damage:
Now I plan to spend the entire week lazing around the house and reading whatever happens to grab my fancy, which right now happens to be The Gargoyle, Go-Go-Girls Of The Apocalypse and Lamb - The Gospel According to Biff. Since it has been muggy, damp and raining non-stop for 4 days with no sign of slowing down, curling up with a book is perfect - besides the idea of socializing with people and listening repeatedly to the phrase "It's not the heat, it's the humidity" is not too appealing right now. Maritime weather - gotta love it!
I suppose along with reading I should also get some reviewing done (so so behind) and get caught back up on my Weekly Geeks mini-review posts and the weeks author photo theme.
Happy reading everyone!
