I'm Not Really Suffering From Reader's Block, More Like a 'I Don't Know What to Read Next' Reader's Block!

Hello everyone! I hope that you're all just fine this morning - I certainly am! :) Anyway, I just wanted to give you an update on how I'm doing so far.

To be perfectly honest, I haven't really been doing that much lately. Actually, I really haven't been feeling all that well for the past couple of weeks. I do have a doctor's appointment next month, but since I keep a good eye on my blood sugar levels, I'm not that worried about my diabetes.

I'm having some difficulty walking properly, but mentioning that to the doctor has only resulted in being told that she couldn't do anything more than prescribe Tylenol for me. I know that it sounds like she thinks I'm a hypochondriac or something, but that's not it: I'm just on a medication that would react badly with Advil. So, basically the only pain reliever that I can take is Tylenol.

I'm actually still working through an amazing backlog of crossword puzzles and sudoku puzzles from the newspaper. So far, I've done approximately 143 sudoku and crossword puzzles from the newspaper, although I have also done some sum-doku puzzles from my puzzle books, too! I have also started doing jigsaw puzzles again as well. So far - or as of Monday afternoon, March 27th, at least - I've done seven jigsaw puzzles out of the giant box of twelve that I have.

As regards my own reading, the most recent book that I've read was The Doctor's Wife: A Novel by Elizabeth Brundage which I finished on Friday, March 3rd! Actually, I have one other book by this author on my bookshelf already, although The Doctor's Wife: A Novel by Elizabeth Brundage is the first book of hers that I have read. I suppose it makes sense since this was also Ms. Brundage's debut novel.

I started reading Psychward by Stephen B. Seager, M. D. on Thursday, March 9th! This is actually a reread for me from approximately six and a half years ago. Although I've read 70 pages out of 251 - approximately 28 percent of the book by Sunday, March 12th - my reading pace is still remarkably slow.

I've since put the book aside for a while - and although I have spent the last two weeks trying to find another book to read - Mareena just let me know that she had requested a book for me several months ago, and that it arrived two days ago. I think that my Reader's Block is finally working itself out!

Till we Meet Again, Glow Brightly as Moonlight

Hello and welcome to my blog. I'm a newbie as far as book blogging goes, having been blogging at my daughter's blog for only about two and a half years. Now it's time for me to get my feet wet on my own. Please be gentle with this blogger. Love to hear from you all. Have a great day! :)
