Lazy, Lazy, Lazy

Do you ever have those times - a few hours, or maybe days, even - when you just don't feel like doing anything productive? If you're a faithful reader of this blog maybe you've realized that I am going through one of those times, except it's been stretching on for weeks. I have a hard time wanting to do anything but eat popsicles on the porch with Isaac or lie on the couch with my feet kicked up contemplating my laziness. Actually, what has been filling most of my non-childcare-dominated hours has been books. Books and books and books. Here's what I've been reading instead of doing productive things:

(If you want to add me as your friend on goodreads, you can find out my opinion of these books - you know you're dying to - and I can know what you're reading so I can read it, too! Loving that site lately.)

That's in no particular order, since I'm too lazy to try to remember when I read them all (laziness is the theme of this post). I did read them all since the last time I posted on this blog though, so this has been the most prolific reading I've done in, well, probably years. In school they used to call me "The Girl with the Book," but it's been a long time since I've lived up to that title.

 Anyway, I'm calling shenanigans on myself -- I'm going to try harder to be a productive person again. I've missed blogging and crafting and creating, even if I'm sure you've filled the void of my absence with other things ;)

What about you guys? Read any good books lately? I'd love a recommendation. Or what do you find is your go-to timesuck?

I always used to go through a huge reading phase, all at a time. I would read like 15 books in 6 weeks, and that's all I would do. Looking at your lineup of literature makes me want to do that again. A few of those I have been meaning to read anyway... Hmm...

I sent you a request to add you as a friend on Goodreads. I'm not very good at updating though. And I don't think you can consider yourself lazy when you have read all those books! Just a shift in priorities, right? :)

Reading isn't laziness, it's brain food.

I've been so poor at reading lately I've only been successful listening to books on CD. Pretty much all of them have been read by the author. See my blog someday for a review of them. One was a David Sedaris book, one was a Malcolm Gladwell book, my favorite so far has been "On Writing" by the great Stephen King.
