You know things are bad…

… when you can’t even enjoy a good book.

Sigh.

Dealing with some unexpected stuff in my “real” (aka, non-book-related) life that’s turned kind of icky. And the worst part is, when I try to escape into the pages of a book, I’m completely unable to concentrate.

Not fair!

When life sucks, the book cure should always work!

Tried to listen to an audiobook while driving home, as I usually do, but it was completely pointless. I kept having to hit the “back” button when I’d realize that my mind had drifted away.

I shall persevere! I refuse to let the yuck keep me from my #1 cure for everything.

If only I could get my brain to turn off the distractions…

But I’ll be brave, march forward, and go stick my nose inside my book one more time! If I try hard enough, I’m pretty sure I can make the rest of the world go away.

After all:

    • That’s really tough. I think we all experience that from time to time. Luckily, sometimes it only takes one great book to snap us out of it!

    • Thank you so much for caring! There’s just a lot of *&$%$% (trying to clean up my language!) going on the moment, and it’s really distracting me from everything else, and the fact that I’m so distracted is just adding to my bad mood. Sigh. Hopefully, I’ll either snap out of it by the weekend or the ickiness itself will start to lighten up.

  1. oh sorry to hear that! I’m always hitting the back button under normal circumstances. I’ll take me forever to finish an audio book if I were going through I hard time šŸ™‚
    hope things get better soon!
