On Strike

My brain is on strike. It just is not interested in reading. I tried picking up several books last night and it just simply does not want to concentrate.

First I tried The Whole World Over. I don't think that will get read at all. I'm just not feeling it right now. Maybe another time? Maybe not?

Then I picked up Beautiful Lies. It seemed ok but again, just couldn't get into it. I think I'll try it again this weekend though because I do want to read it.

When I went to bed I read a chapter or two from The Romance of Libraries. I'm interested in this book because I love libraries and I know a few people in university who either met in libraries or spent much of their relationships in it (sweetly the library was mentioned in a groom's speech at a wedding I attended last year). Each chapter is full of little short stories from people all over the world. But I even had a hard time concentrating on that.

I need something that is just going to suck me in. I need good characters. I need interesting plot. But I need it not to be heavy because my brain is exploding at work. sigh.

I WANT to read. I'm just tired. And mentally exhausted at the end of the day. sigh.
