A few days ago I blogged about paperbackswap.com. I have become addicted. I have been swapping books like crazy the last few weeks and I now have to put myself on restriction. You see I have absolutely no self control what-so-ever once I have started a book. I have to finish it. I’ll read all day and stay up all night if I have too. Then to make matters worse, if it is a series book, which a lot of the ones I am reading right now are, I will start the next one right away. Starting the cycle all over again.
What does this mean? Well I have been spending a large amount of time reading, which means I have been sorta not working as much as I should. Bad me. However, my real problem is that I don’t have great eye site. Now my eyes are very tired and are not focusing very well. I wear glasses for distance, so this isn’t a blurry, I am not wearing my glasses while reading issue. I don’t need reading glasses. I wish it were that simple. I just plain am wearing my poor eyes out. Or at least the one good eye anyway (I am almost blind in my left eye). I fear I am straining the poor thing. Add my countless hours of looking into the computer ( I have been writing a lot too) with the countless torch time hours, then add in two straight days of reading. It doesn’t add up to a great picture. So I am off to rest my poor eye a bit, before I start staring in the computer screen again and then getting my torching done.
Too bad I can’t find a hobby that rests my eyes….
I have seven books lined up waiting for me to read them. I am feeling tortured.
