TSS (April 11): Post-Read-a-thon Lethargy

The Sunday Salon.com When I woke up this morning I was feeling rather energetic, like I could read a million more books today and not even break a sweat. But now I just want to sit and stare at the TV for a while, and I haven’t read any books.

I hate this post read-a-thon slump! I want to read today, not sit around like a lump. But I can’t make myself focus, and so instead I think maybe I’ll write some reviews, or something. Let’s hope this lethargy leaves me alone by tomorrow, or I don’t know what I’m going to do.

In other news, I’m closing in on my 100th book read this year! This is so exciting– I wonder what it’ll be? If my current reading trend continues it’ll probably be a memoir or a classic; who wants to guess which genre it ends up being?

Currently reading:
I’ve been on a hankering for both memoirs and classics, and as I don’t particularly want to read any of the memoirs I have at hand right now I decided to go with classics. So I’m reading The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde! I don’t expect to read more than a few pages today (trying to recharge after the ‘thon, after all), but I’m hoping I’ll enjoy it.

  1. I know what you mean about the readathon lethargy. I was a cheerleader and only stayed up until 1am last night and I’m having a hard time starting any of my books today. Congrats on all of your reading that you got done!
