Po-tay-to, po-tah-to

January is almost at an end, and so far, I've read a measly 4 books. It's been slow going for me in terms of reading lately. However, unlike most people, I'm not bothered by it, well, at least not yet.

I know I'll get the reading groove back, my reading mojo, my intoxicating paper cocktail. But don't get me wrong; I'm still reading though. In fact, I'm still on track for our read-along for Haruki Murakami's 1Q84. And just to challenge myself further, I made my first book purchase for the year: George Orwell's 1984. Perhaps I can find the connection between these two novels.

Of course, it would be futile to compare these 2 works, I think. It just so happened that one inspired the other. So right now, I'll be going to bed with these 2 books. I wonder which of the 2 will be the more satisfying companion in bed. Hihihihihi.


I am enjoying the slow reading life. I wouldn't want reading to be something I'd feel stressed about. If I don't feel like reading, then I won't force myself to open a book. I'd rather sleep.

I wondered where you'd got to!

Hey - did that interview - the midwife story. Was JUST like reading the book!!! The magazine goes to the printer on Tuesday - I'll send you a link when the pdf version is uploaded to the work website.
