It’s Monday December 28. What Are You Reading?


I feel only capable of reading a book of quotes right now. My kids know me very well with this beautiful bookish gift, and so this is what I will read today.

But I’m stuck. Just when I thought I didn’t have the right word for how I’m feeling (reading-wise) I came across Capricious Reader’s post with the word, Gobbledybooks. It’s when “you want to read all the books and so you read none at all”.

I’m still reading the short stories from last week but I really want to just hunker down with a novel that will make me ignore everything else around me. I haven’t had that feeling in a while. My only excuse is that even though I am off of work a few days with the holidays, I’m still distracted with all the stuff to do. I hosted 20 people on Christmas and so that equates to many days of prepping and recovery. And we’ve been binge watching the Harry Potter movies with the kiddos so that’s been really fun.

Who knows. I have a ton of backlist books sitting on my shelves at home and maybe one will do the trick.

What are you reading this week?

  1. “you want to read all the books and so you read none at all.”

    I am all too familiar with this feeling. Sigh. I’m in the middle of several books at the moment, making progress in none of them. I hope I regain focus after the new year.

    It sounds like you had a lovely holiday. Binge-watching Harry Potter is the best.

  2. Oh no! You have it too! The gobbledybooks are the worst. I really want to hunker down with a great novel too. I hope we both find one.

  3. Love that description of wanting to gobble up all the books and then reading none! As you’ve been so busy over Christmas no wonder you just want to watch HP movies. Nice way to just relax.

  4. I know the feeling and need to check out Heather’s post…love the name! The last book I really sunk into was The Handmaid’s Tale (which I finally read for the first time). I also enjoyed Brave Enough…flipped through a few pages before bed before Xmas.
