Actually, I got up earlier today than I did yesterday, but I didn’t focus much through the day. Watched my husband game, talked to our daughter, read a bit of a novella …

Remembered a weird thing about my reading habits. Sometimes, in a lovely, lushly described work if I care for the characters, I stop reading early, especially if I can see how very much the characters have to lose. I don’t want to be torn apart inside as they go through hell. So I tend more toward light, escapist reading than heart-wrenching, award-quality reading. More true for longer fiction than short. (This is problematic for award nominations and voting, yes.)

Anyway, eventually eked out 656 words.

And wow, it’s late! I must to bed.

I'm the same with TV shows. With the exception of Game of Thrones I can't stand anything that's people being awful to each other, which has seriously restricted my viewing choices and I was gutted when I ran out of Gilmore Girls.

With books it's easier. If it's getting too much I read the end. :D

I only do it if reading gets too stressful! Which isn't often.

But you can just assume everyone dies, which takes away some of the stress. :D

I started reading them, and gave up on them, before it was cool. ;)
