@Nellie I did not like Nine Perfect Strangers. Did you?
Yes. Started and finished Verity by Colleen Hoover yesterday and just finished Queens of Fennbirn by Kendare Blake
How did you like Verity?
I’m reading Verity now
@Donna I really liked it. It’s the first book I’ve read by Colleen Hoover
Finished a few Wattpad books. Started with Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy..
Nope! Less than 100 pages in to my first book. For me, that’s a pretty good pace for 2 days though. Lol.
Finished my first today, half way through the second and about a 1/3 of the way through an audiobook as well ?
No, but I’ve started three, lol. One is well over 1000 pages and will take me a while to get through, one I read 300 pages of and ended up DNFing, now I’m about 75% of the way through Alloy of Law by Brandon Sanderson and loving it, I should be done sometime tonight.
I still can’t figure out how you guys read so fast! :O
I don’t know about everyone else, but speaking personally, it helps to have a lot of free time, no kids or significant other, and not many other hobbies, lol.
My main problem is falling asleep in the middle of a reading session. Lol. I just can’t keep reading for hours but I wish I could! Stupid work getting in the way! I don’t even have kids, just a husband and cat. Lol.
And it’s true I could read more if I cut down on online time. 😛
I have a complete inability to fall asleep while reading, which helps me out too, I guess. I’ve never been one for dozing off. Falling asleep for me typically requires laying in bed and staring at the ceiling for around two hours ?
I guess both extremes aren’t ideal. ?I never used to fall asleep so easily, but I feel like once I hit 30 it started happening a lot more. Of course when I actually get into bed to sleep, that’s when I’m wide awake!
Are you ladies retired?
I definitely am not! Only about 25 or so years to go…maybe ?
@Jeannie nope! I’m 30. I work overnights at a group home though, so I do get to spend most of my time at work reading.
