Under normal circumstances, I am a slow reader. It isn't uncommon for me to take awhile to get through a 400+ page book. Under normal circumstances, I get restless when I've been reading the same book for a week when I could've had it done by then. Regardless how good the book is, I do reach a point when I'm ready to tackle the piles of other books waiting to be read.
My past week has had me reading under anything but normal circumstances. In fact, it has turned me into a Grumpy Reader!! I hate being a grumpy reader. I'm reading such a good book and I'm loving every minute of it. However, I feel like my reading time is constantly diminished or interrupted by life. Whether it's been my temperamental car having a few issues, or life dipping into my few stolen moments of reading time, I have been reading the same book for too long! I want nothing more than to curl up and ravish the story that awaits me. Instead, I'm defusing interruption after another. MAKE IT STOP!!! THIS GIRL WANTS TO FINISH A BOOK!
Granted, I'd rather be a Grumpy Reader with a good book, than a bad one. Still, I miss getting quality chunks of time to devour this wonderful book.
