Get A Life: “With her nose stuck in a book”

This week marks a truly amazing celebration in my opinion – National Reading Is Fun Week!

I have been a little slack in all things recently due to working, traveling and being ill. Whilst drawing and writing blocks happen maybe once or twice a week depending on my mood, reading block happens once or twice a year and it baffles me as I love nothing more than curling up with a book and becoming someone else for a while. Nothing beats escapism, and I find it hard to relate to anyone who doesn’t enjoy reading something. Anything.

In a bid to shake off my reading block, I have reverted to reading a couple of things this week, each as different as the next. I began the weekend with a little mystery in the shape of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes as the stories are beautiful as well as being easy to pick up and read within 10 minutes. Today as I’m off work sick I wanted something dog eared, basic and fun so I pulled out some Young Adult books. Continuing with the profoundly passionate, I have a thick collection of Bronte novels to drown in over the weekend (Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre and Agnes Grey) which I’ve been looking forward to, especially as I picked it up for £1.50 in second hand store. What are you reading a the moment?

P.S I was most upset to find that today is Eat What You Want Day. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to participate in this to my full ability as I’m currently fasting for a blood test! Somebody eat a cookie for me.
