I have problems.
Thankfully, not the kind that they lock you up for. Usually.
During summer, I always try to keep a rational balance between enjoying sleep, gearing up for next year's classroom, and reading.
This summer, I haven't really read much. It's not because there aren't many books worth reading right now, because there's a ton I can't wait to sink my teeth into. The thing is, reading is like Pringles. Once you pop, the fun don't stop. (Also, Pringles make a wonderful reading snack.)
I have a problem with reading a book like any rational person. Apparently, I only know how to read in frenzied spurts. Once I pick up a book that I am interested in, I usually only put it down to take care of essential tasks (getting more Pringles). I don't know what it is about reading that draws me in so. I was the kid who took library books to Pep Rallies. I devour them. I try to limit myself to one or two chapters at a time (and 10-15 Pringles) and to go on about my day, but I always end up sprawled out at 2 in the morning, throwing a finished book down as I brush off chip crumbs and look for the empty Pringles can.
I really need to find balance in my life. And apparently more Pringles again.
Which books capture you?
