To be quite frank, I am in a big reading slump. I have completed a grand total of ONE book this month, and while I hope to finish more, I doubt it.
I'm STILL reading Villette by Charlotte Bronte and it looks like these last 140 pages are going to be my nemesis. It is not that I don't like it, I just find it hard to read in large amounts.
I also still have the massive Bleak House sitting on my nightstand and waiting for me.
I have goals of course. I want to finish Villette before the end of the month, as well as one other smallish novel that I am eying, but I am not going to sweat it. I have had quite a bit on my mind recently and I don't need to pressure myself. :)
Anyway, Matt and I are beginning to look for a new place to live. I am not thrilled with where we are. Matt's car has been broken into twice since living here. I personally don't feel like this is the best area for us. And, we just got some new neighbors who are pushing my buttons. On Friday night, they cranked up the worst accordion music in the world and had a fiesta of epic proportions. I asked them to turn it down, which they ignored, so I took matters into my own hands and pulled out the trumpet (I play in a community band). Needless to say, after hitting some high notes for 20 minutes, they got the point and turned the music off.
So, we are looking for a new place. We're trying to find something the same size, which is difficult. But we have a few options, and we're even looking at houses instead of just apartment complexes. I am sure that this is a process that will take up a great deal of time.
I hope to be back in a reading mood soon, but I still have posts for you. :) Happy Reading everyone!
