As I said in my last post, I've spent the week with the flu, which has led me to wonder:
How does your being sick (or injured) affect your reading? Do you read more? Less? Do you pick out a different book than you had already planned? Do you have a "comfort book" that makes you feel better?
PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Musing Mondays post, or share your opinion in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks.
One of the things I remember the most about sick as a kid (I never really got sick, but managed to catch every cold that went around) was curling up in my mum's bed and watching The Sound of Music - my all-time favourite movie. It always made me feel better. I was thinking about this today, and it suprised me to realise that I don't have/do a book equivalent.
When I'm sick I pretty much just lie around and read - as long as I don't have to actually move, then I'm good. My reading is usually punctuated by a lot of dozing so while I read almost all day, it's in little 10 minute spurts.
Most of the time I'll read whatever I'm currently reading until it's done. This time it was Middlesex, and I managed to read over half of it in a day and a bit. After that I try to pick up something easier on my poor brain that's been shook around from all my coughing. I read the first seven books of Daisy Meadow's Rainbow Magic series - the huge font was heaven :)
