Why is that David Bowie song spinning around in my head? I feel pressure...and I shouldn't. Reading is a relaxing escape, a pleasure, and adventure in another time or life. Sometimes I feel like I'm the main character and I'm living that life. I love that. At times though, I feel overwhelmed by the sheer number of books that I have around the house, all whispering, "Read me, read me." I feel the pressure of them.
Rewind three years ago when I could spend hours, even parts of an entire day reading, lost in my book. Not that I'm complaining (well okay, a little), but my reading time has been reduced to a few minutes before I can't keep my eyes open any more at bed time. This isn't my ideal scenario. At this rate I'll never finish all the books whispering to me. Oh the pressure!
