  • Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense. --Ralph Waldo Emerson

You should probably look into doing audiobooks. I've switched almost entirely to those. You can get them on CD, layaway, or download to your iPod if your library has a downloadable service (they probably do). Then you just put one on and go about doing your chores. Makes the time pass very pleasantly as you clean the bathroom, cook, or whatever! Of course, I work at the library, so I might be prejudiced in favor of continuing that reading streak you're on!

*playaway, not "layaway"!


I always think that learning to read was the best gift (ever!) that I was given. I like to start and end my day with at least 15 minutes of reading time. Some books I will re-read because it is like visiting with old friends. My library card is the best card life has dealt me.

I'm heartened to know he even feels like going to the library! Six days post op, and I don't want to go anywhere that would require getting out of the recliner! He's a brave man!


Reading! I love reading, but I know what you mean about getting caught up in a book and other stuff being forgotten... :-( I have an ereader, but still love the "real thing" - always at least one of each on the go. And I love the library because it gives you the chance to try authors that you wouldn't normally look at.
One of your commenters suggested audiobooks - something I've never tried, but I think our local library is trialling them. I do like the actual act of reading, but may have to give an audiobook a try. - Will that be 3 books on the go at once? :-)
Pleased that Wayne continues to get better.
