May came in with temperatures around 80 in my little corner of the world so wheeee! Bring on the heat! Bring on the flip flops, sunscreen, and sandals! Hand me a Popsicle or a long, cool beverage and then don’t bother me. I’ve got reading to do.
It’s not that I don’t read during colder temps; it’s just that I read snuggled up in bed (because duh, I’m cold) and before you know it, my eyelids are getting droopy. Bottom line, it takes me ever so long to finish a book when I do my reading late, late at night.
But when the sun’s shining and the deck’s nice and warm, I take my book (or Kindle) outside and Libs lounges about, too, watching me read. (And just so you know, I get all my writer business work done in the morning, and I write later in the afternoon, so I’m not a complete scofflaw.)
Lately, I’ve had a couple of self-pubbed books at the top of my To Be Read pile. And I thoroughly enjoyed these stories, even though they’re outside the genres I generally read. However, I do have a small bone to pick; you’ll have to zip over to The Muffin to read Self Publishing Pitfalls to get the details. And then you’ll have finished your work, too, and can join me for a lovely after-lunch read on the deck.
Two weeks ago, we were completely snowed in. A few days ago, it was 85 degrees and humid. I think we’re finally settling in to regular spring temps now! So I confess to being a little jealous of you in your flip flops. I’ve learned not to fall asleep when snuggled up with a good book because you have to snuggle up a lot when you live in Minnesota. (I’m drinking hot coffee now. 🙂 ) And off I go to read your muffin post. (P.S. Libs is so stinkin’ cute!)
Couldn’t agree more!
Heading to The Muffin! And that Libs is obviously a wonderful reader buddy. So cute!
