Hello, Friends!



At this point, I don't even know if I can call myself a blogger let alone a book blogger. But here I am blogging today.

I haven't read a book in over a month. Not even an audiobook. I just can't get into it. I want to but I feel like I don't have the brain space. The Readathon is coming up at the end of the month and I think I am going to join in. I'll be finished working by then so maybe it will jump start my reading.

The reading part of my brain

What have I been doing?

Cross stitching.

Listening to lots of podcasts. I just started S-Town. I haven't read anything about it. I don't want to know anything until I finish it. I'm halfway through. I'm not sure if it's real or not. It seems a little too neat to be real, you know? I have some issues either way: 1) if it's real it seems exploitative, or 2) if it's fiction it perpetuates stereotypes that may or may not be accurate. As someone from a economically depressed area too, when someone "from away" writes about our, let's call it, uniqueness, it puts my back up. So I have second-hand anxiety about this podcast. I'm still loving the storytelling though.

Watching Netflix. I'm caught up on Jane the Virgin. I was not happy about where certain things went. And now we're in the future, I guess? What is happening?
I'm on season 3 of Grace and Frankie. It is so good. I love those ladies and their new business.

 
What else? I got a Silhouette Cameo for my birthday. That's an electronic cutting machine. You can design graphics, print them, and then use the machine to cut them out of say sticker paper or vinyl. I've been printing out stickers for my planner. It's a neat machine.

Other than that I'm waiting for spring to finally get here. I need to get back into running.

So, that's my update. Not much reading. Sorry. I hope there is someone left reading my blog! Say hi in the comments if you're still there!

  1. It's good to hear from you! I wish I was creative enough to make stickers like that.

  2. Hello!! I still think you count as a book blogger, you'll get back into reading more whenever your brain decides that it's ready I'm sure :) I read an article just last night on S-Town, dum de dum I won't say anything though ;)

  3. Hi! I'm still here, and you're totally still a book blogger! As soon as I found out the "twist" in ep two S-Town, I took it off my to-listen list -- I think that's hella exploitative and gross, and that's without all the other reveals that start happening as the podcast goes on (which I read about on the internet), which sound deeply unethical too.

  5. Hi, girl!!! Keep on cross-stitching! I haven't been doing that but I have been reading. So we balance each other out I feel. I think we are all feeling the end of winter blahs. Hang in there!

  6. I'm still recovering from Ulysses. The books are being read but not at a fast pace. I really need to pick it up if I ever plan to finish my review copies.
