The Reading Slump
The reading/blogging slump seems to be going through our community right now and it's made it to We Be Reading. I'll admit that it's more than slightly due to the Olympics. I am watching about eighty percent of the sports and it is taking up almost all of my reading time. I always love the Olympics (as you may remember from the Summer Olympics a couple of years ago when I disappeared for a week or so) but they are extra fascinating this year as we are somewhat familiar with Vancouver and have even stayed in the Pan Pacific hotel where the press is staying during the games. It's exciting to see and I wish we could have gotten it together enough to go up there!
Also, I went a bit overboard for my participation in the Hello Japan! film challenge -- as you will see when I post about it in a couple of days. I think my time spent on this challenge will total about twenty hours! That doesn't leave much time for reading.
Finally, I am just not feeling excited about most of my books right now. Maybe I need to just forget challenges and review books for a week or two and spend some time with beloved favorites. I've been craving an Alice in Wonderland re-read lately with the SyFy Channel miniseries and the new film coming out.
