Back-ish, by Popular Demand

I'm only working two jobs now; that's down by one from a few weeks ago.  Reading has kinda gone on hiatus in favor of sleep.  I haven't had the frame of mind or energy to sit down and read in a while.  Hopefully that will change, but I really don't see it happening until next year or so.  Whenever I do sit down to read I think I'll be looking at a lot of small or smallish books that go by at a quick pace to help me get a sense of completion.

It's not so much a reading funk and certainly not that I've run out of books of interest.  Hell, I've got a book by Nicole Krauss at home from the library that I haven't read, and she's my favorite writer ever, that I haven't found the strength to even start.

But in the realm of starting to read again, and short things that go by quickly, I do have a copy of Jennifer Brown's newest novel, Torn Away.  It's never taken me more than a few days to get through her books and they are consistently awesome (so I assume; there are two that I'm kinda staying away from...).  So I may find some time in the coming days to knock this out.  I also want to finish whatever the name of the book by Tad Williams that I was reading a month ago.  I got about half way through it and was actually enjoying it, but then fizzled out on reading energy.

Not to say 'I'm back' and reading like normal, but I haven't fallen off the planet either.

Glad you're back! Sorry about the work, although probably the getting-a-paycheck-part is nice. I look forward to reading your thoughts on books, and other things, regularly again.
