42 Books in 2 and 1/2 Weeks (Help!)

Jester reading a book

So I sit down with my laptop and three books, supposing to type a short post for WordPress before spending some free time reading a book. I do have 42 books to read before the end of the year, and that is what I hoped to make progress on. However, I opened my Reader on WordPress – first mistake – and that’s all it took. I kept finding more articles, short and long, that interested me, and I kept scrolling down and down and further down the page. It did not seem like much later when I glanced at the clock. It had been an hour. I was supposed to be reading one of those 42 books during that time, but, yet again, WordPress – more aptly, the authors of various blogs – snared me again. It was lovely to swim through that lake again. I don’t regret it, by any means. 🙂 I always seem to enjoy the poetry of The Mirror Obscura and others, photography by Elementary Posters and others,  and I enjoyed a revisiting of a Charlie Brown Christmas Special by Patsy’s Creative Corner, as well as many other posts. So thanks to all – mentioned and unmentioned – for the wonderful reads. I accidentally chose your posts over a book. 🙂 It was worth it, and I will get to those books, never you fear. 🙂
