Read, or sleep, or … read; what to do??

Here’s the scenario.

It’s late. I’m reading an amazing story, one of those hard-to-put-down books. I am so tired I can hardly keep my eyes open. I rest my eyes a moment, my book slips and my head jerks up. Really, I was just resting my eyes! I try to read more but then … yawn. Heaviness. I shake my head, find where I left off reading, try to continue. … Oh darn. What did I just read? Blink blink.  *sigh*  ohhh, I give up.  😦  I like this story and I don’t want to miss anything, so,  *yawn*   I give up. Time for sleep.

I crawl into bed, snuggle down and … 

BOING!! my brain jolts into overdrive! My eyes fly open, my mind will not shut down, yet I know I’m too weary to read. What to do?

Ever been there?

All that to show you this great quote:

What do you like to read, what would you write?

If you have been here before, you may notice that I changed my blog theme.  I like that now the comments link, where you share your thoughts with me, is located at the top of the posts.

Thank you so much for taking time to come here and read what I have to say, and for leaving comments for me. I look forward to reading next week what you write to me this week. Time away from my computer for the next few days will be used for reading and hopefully a little writing.

In all the reading I am doing I’m discovering more about my varied taste in books – from children’s picture books, middle grade, young adult, to adult novels in different genres. If you want to check my 2011 “have read” book list page, I’m keeping track there, as I did in 2010.

I have been learning what I am not very interested in, what I like but with qualifiers, what I get totally lost in, and what I would love to write myself.

Lately I have been wondering about something, and I would love to hear from you on these four questions.

1. What do you like most to read? Themes, genres, authors?
2. Do you have favourite authors and would read anything written by them?
3. What have you found that you are not interested in spending your time reading?
4. If you were to write a book, what would it be about?
