I’ve started reading the Young Adult fiction Twilight. I picked it up after I saw my sister-in-law with it over the holidays. I’m a sucker for Vampires as Protagonists type of stories, whether they be in writing or on TV. Or even in the movies. After I watch all of the new episodes of my shows tonight, I’m going to curl up with Twilight and try to finish it. Mainly because I am not very productive when I have a book hanging over my head. Do you do that? Do you have trouble being motivated or productive when you’re reading a really gripping book? This is why I can’t read more, I don’t seem to have the ability to put a book down and move to other things. I’ve been known to carry a book around with me for days reading every spare second I can get in order to finish it. And I most definitely can’t read two books at once.
I’ve noticed that LilZ does the same thing. He brings his book in the car on the way to Target, which is 10 minutes away. He carries his books to school and gets in trouble for sneaking reading in during class. He takes them to family functions and friend’s houses. You just never know when you’ll get a chance to read, so you don’t want to be caught without your book if you get one of those chances.
So – are we weird? Or do you all do that too?
Update from 2020: WE ARE STILL ADDICTED TO TWILIGHT. This is the pandemic year and we even custom-ordered t-shirts that said “Quarantined in Forks” because we watched the movies constantly and Nikki read the books and we even built our Mother’s Day around the movie. This entry made me so happy.
