Weekend Update & Books

I think I actually had a decent weekend for once. I was able to get some stuff accomplished even though I do tire easily with my anemia. It helped that a friend was able to come over yesterday and help me out for a little bit. We painted my master bathroom and did some dusting in the living room. I’m really grateful when she can come and help me out. I can actually get stuff done that I need to get done.

I also managed to read TWO books this weekend. I haven’t read that many books so quick in a couple of months. It took me a while to get through Guns of Avalon. It took me almost two months to read which is super slow for me. I can easily read a 300 page book in a day if I feel like it and that book wasn’t even that long. So far this year I’ve read 45 out of the 50 books for my goal. Which is pretty awesome. I don’t think I’ve read this many books in a while. I also played some video games this weekend(Siv 5 and Anno 2070) which is always a plus.

The next book was also decided for book club. We’re reading Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness by Susannah Cahalan. I’m trying really hard to slow down while reading it so it can sink in but it’s really interesting so far and I’m having a hard time not just blasting through it. I’ll do a review on it once I’m done reading it.

I also want to get an eReader. I’m pretty set on the Nook Glowlight right now. I just have to decide when I want to get it. I have to travel for work in the next couple of months and it would be nice to not have to pack several books to read. I always get worried that they’ll be damaged in some way. Or that I’ll run out of books! The Nook is also a lot lighter than some of the books I read and I can carry a lot of them on it. Another advantage is that I can rent books from an online library for Oregon and load them on there.

I’m starting my Humira shots tomorrow which is slightly nerve wracking but I’m hoping all goes well, I don’t have a bad reaction to it and that it works for me.

  1. I have a Nook Color and love it. I was always very devoted to actual books and never would’ve bought it for myself, but my boyfriend gave me his when he got an iPad. Don’t get me wrong; I still love real books too, but the Nook is awfully convenient for travel and instant gratification.

    Good luck with the Humira!
