Please let this be over, now!

I am a voracious reader. Reading was one of the activities I most anxiously anticipated when I headed into my retirement.

I peruse

best seller list to choose which books to reserve at the library.

Earlier this week, I stepped outside of my usual fiction genre to try a book about a post-apocalyptic vampire infested world. If an author is good and can draw me in, I am consumed by the story.

This morning, Paul said to me, "Why do you keep reading that book? You aren't enjoying it." Yikes!

 Once I got past the fact he reads my mind, I agreed. What was I thinking?

I won't even watch a movie if I know it is the least bit scary or sad.  I had read several hundred depressing and dismal pages. Enough. Back to my own little bubble.

New book today.

Why do people read that stuff?

Very funny! My wife can read my mind too! I don't know the answer though, I find myself reading stuff and wondering why quite often!

I can understand. I think we heard the phrase - "finish what you start" so much growing up, that we just have to try to live up to it even if it isn't a good idea! I'm glad Paul brought the sanity back! Another thing to be thankful for this Thanksgiving!
