Life just gets in the way

I so wanted to be able to post my review of Hex Hall here tonight but I am nowhere near the end yet! It sucks!
I spent a lot of this week with my sister, and obviously when you have visitors you cant really sit there and read, not when its your house and you’re meant to be the host! so yeah I only got about 30 pages read since Wednesday morning and it is driving me crazy. I am so ready to dive into Hex Hall and lose myself!

I did however want to write a quick post about reading though. I have recently gotten much faster at reading, I try to fully emerge myself into a book and ignore as much as possible around me, but I still cant seem to be able to read more than one book at a time… it really bugs me because I’m sure I’ll get more read if I could! I also cant fully ignore everything around me though so I have to stop if there’s too much noise and stuff. Having my sister here reminded me of what shes like when reading. She’s a complete bookworm, she got me into reading and I thank her for that all the time (she doesn’t have the Internet though… strange!) but seriously, I have shouted “FIRE!” at her before when she was reading and she didn’t even flinch.
So obviously, everyone is different and because of this I’d like to know you guys’ reading habits, do you read more than one book at a time? how many? how many books do you read in a week? Do you get so emerged into a book that you don’t hear anything around you?!

  • I read one at a time because I get too involved with a story to bother with other ones. And yes I do ignore everything around me including Phil and any concept of time! And I can read a couple, I can read a book in a day if I want too.

    And I know what you mean about life getting in the way! I will do a dino for you soon I promise ! xx

  • I can only read one at a time, if I’m loving the book and it’s short, around 300 pages I can read it in a non-work day easily but I can’t seem to block out everything, I wish I could just ignore everything sometimes! Lol

    Life does get in the way, i could read more if I didn’t have to make tea! I know you will draw me my dino, sweetie, just concentrate on your Uni work though! That’s more important! 🙂 x
