What A Strange Non-Reading Week It's Been

He can't read. If he could, page-turning would be a challenge.

Color me crabby. After my terrific reading streak, I went into a slump, and I haven't been able to settle into a book since last Wednesday. The most I've done is dip into a couple of re-reads, skimming and skipping at will.

Here's what I've been doing with my time:

  • Packing
  • Going to the post office
  • Trying to figure out what is deserving of international postage
  • Trying to interest people in my stuff
  • Watching old episodes of Family on YouTube
  • Making stacks of books
  • Eating bungeoppang
  • Working on the Nano project
  • Doing conversation tutoring on Wednesdays

Although my life is full, I still feel the need. The need for read! 

Age 2. I couldn't read yet.

Dear Annoyed (makes me feel like Dear Abby), don't sweat it. You have a whole lot of stuff to take care of before you repatriate yourself. You head has to be spinning these days with everything you want/need to do before heading home. Good luck.

If that crab shows up in my nightmares you're gonna hear about it. And you should try Boys in the Boat to beat that bookish malaise. ;-)

That's one darn uncomfortable state, but I speak from experience when I say: It'll soon be history.

In the meantime... I've found that stomping like a pre-reading 2-year-old actually helps.
