Reading, its one of those things I never quite get around to doing, well it use to be. Ever since I’ve started my new job I’ve been reading crazy.
When I changed jobs I shifted my commute; arriving at 7:40 and going home at 3:40, is all very well when you’ve been in a job for a while but I figured it may look a bit funny if I started doing that in a new job, so I now arrive at around 8:30 and go home at 4:45 (train times, no point leaving at half past I’d just be sitting on the train).
Anyway, the fact that I’ve had a bit more time to wake up appears to mean that I am in a fit state to read something on the way to work. And so far in the last four months I have read 5 books during my twelve minute commute, JPod, The Eyre Affair, Lost in a good book, The Well of Lost Plots, Something Rotten, and The Big Over Easy, now for someone who usually has five or six unfinished books on the go this is good. Currently I’m reading On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, to see if the books are better than the films.
I have a whole book momentum issue normally, so the regiment of reading on the train has helped get past the point where I would often put a book down and not pick it up again. Although there are still some books where it’s proven a bit to much like hard work and I’ve have put them down, so far, Time Stops for no Mouse has proven once again to be to be a book that takes to long to get anywhere, hence I don’t know were it goes I’ve stopped reading it. I’ve also tried yet again to read an Ian Rankin book (Knots and Crosses), but just couldn’t get past the first few chapters.
