Earlier this week, I spoke on why the internet can sometimes be an amazing resource to utilize for good. Ignoring all the examples of when it can be used terribly because I’m in a glass half full mood today, we’ll continue that trend with talking about a pretty cool graphic novel that I bought.
Yesterday I sat down The Summer Tree with annoyance on my counter. This was probably the fifth time I’ve done this since I started reading the book. But the reason for it probably isn’t what you’d expect. I’ve been attempting to read this book at a sluggish pace for the better part of two months now (it’s definitely slowing down my reading challenge) and keep running into moments where I have to just sit it down and just take a break from it; and I’ve been wondering why.
I feel like I’ve had this feeling before.
It would be the understatement of the summer if I said that the last two months haven’t been the most productive when it came to reading. ESPECIALLY within the context of keeping up with my 2017 Reading Challenge. In between family, work, and just overall life, it was unintentionally put on the back burner and my pace slowed to a crawl.
A short update on this Memorial Day holiday for my 2017 Reading Challenge!
You never realize how much time has passed until you really get a chance to look back on things in retrospect. At the top of this month, I revealed books seven and eight on my list to complete by April 30th; and here we are on the twenty-seventh as I write this and I’m still sixty pages short in Bill Bryson’s A Walk in the Woods!
