I've been reading ('furiously', according to my friend) for the past week in a bid to ignore this horrible pain and not feel so sorry for myself. Averaging a book a day and wondering what books to put on my to-read list. What are you reading? I've just started 'The Bookshop on the corner' by Jenny Colgan and the last 4 I devoured were:

Father Unknown by Lesley Pearse
Please don't take my baby by Cathy Glass
Possessing the Secret of Joy by Alice Walker
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

I love reading but struggle now to follow a page and end up rereading it before getting frustrated and giving up!

I wish, i could use something to pass the time, unfortunately on top of my ailments, I'm dyslexic. Lol

Happytoseethesunrise perhaps find out if you like audio books? I've just discovered podcasts as well, maybe listen to a couple and see if they're your thing?

Lol! Stagefrightgirl, that happens to me a lot now. Some days, I'm totally mixing in characters from an entirely different book. The joys of fibro fog 😊

Not long ago I had started a post on reading. Several had posted where they go to get books and what books they have or are enjoying. You might check that.
