I’ve been MIA for almost a week and missed blogging posts here at The Daily Dosage. Family was visiting from Scotland for the weekend-long wedding extravaganza for my little sister. It was an absolute blast but glad to be back to the regular routine.
This is my first participation in the weekly meme hosted by Book Journey. I highly suggest you pop on over to the site and check out her blog. Especially if you enjoy audio books. She has many great recommendations and listening to an audio book is on my “to-do” list this year.
So a quick little side note. June started out strong for me with books like My Salinger Year and The Book of Unknown Americans. I also attended Printer’s Row Lit Fest here in Chicago and it was fantastic! But then it fell flat. Very flat. To the point where I had to make the excruciating decision to stop reading a few books that felt more like homework rather than an escape to reading heaven. Being surrounded by hundreds of books at work (public library) left me feeling jealous. Jealous of all of the patrons that simply walk into the library, browse leisurely, reading book jackets and deciding right then and there which books to read. As much as I love receiving galleys and books that have yet to be released, I miss choosing a book that I’ve wanted to read for some time and finally cracking it open. So I did just that before jumping into a new release at the end of June. I checked out two that I could not stop second glancing and my reading slump is officially over.
