TSS: A Week of A.D.D.-Infused Reading


It has been a bad week for my A.D.D. In addition to talking about three things at the same time and being distracted by everything from someone on the phone to the wind blowing outside, my reading has been all...over...the...place. I am reading six books at once, plus keeping up with blogs. Like I said, all over the place.

First, I have been continuing to read The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins. I am through the first narrative and have started the second narrative. I was thinking how I should slow down for the classics challenge so I can finish it after April 1st, but at this rate it will take me until April to finish it anyhow. I keep reading other books in addition! And it is not that I don't like the books I am reading, either. Nothing to do with it. I just have had a powerful need to skip around and read randomly.

I am also continuing to read Stuffed by Hank Cardello. I am learning so much from this book! It is a fascinating read so far. I am about halfway through it. I can't tell you how many times I have stopped to take notes on it so I remember things I want to say in my review.

Online I am reading Beyond Good and Evil by Friedrich Nietzsche. This is a deep philosophical read so I don't read more than a chapter at a time. There is a lot of absorbing of the material.

I have also started the book Surviving Grief...and Learning to Live Again by Dr. Catherine M. Sanders. As you know if you have been reading my blog for a while, my father passed away in January. Actually, it will be a month ago on Wednesday, the day after my sister's birthday (thankfully, not on it). This same sister and I went to Barnes & Noble last week and picked up 4 different books on grieving (we couldn't decide between them). She is reading one and I am reading one. My other sister and mother have not shown interest in reading about it. I am learning a lot. Sanders has a different idea about the stages of grief than you typically hear about. I like that she has been there, done that, too. You won't believe how many people she has lost in her life and how close the deaths were to each other. Her experience definitely adds credit to the book. I did not get to go to my father's grave today (I still have not been). But I will go tomorrow. I have to go before that month mark hits or I will never forgive myself.

So, that is four books if you are keeping track. The other book I picked up is Midwives by Chris Bohjalian. I had not intended to begin reading it. I was going through old books that I had put aside to give away that I had not looked at in a while. When I came across Midwives, I remembered that when I had tried to read it I just couldn't get into it. I read the first few pages, thinking it may have just been the timing of when I was trying to read it. It was. I have already read the first three chapters. It was two years ago that I tried to read it the first time. So far it is much better than I remember it being. Have any of you read this book?

The sixth book I have been looking through is the book I just reviewed called Imagist Poetry: An Anthology. It had some beautiful poems in it.

I don't know what the next week will bring. Maybe I will read more of one book than another, maybe it will be another week of randomness and ping-pong between books. We'll just have to see next Sunday.

  1. I'm glad to see Stuffed is good. I've been looking forward to reading it.

  2. It may be April 1st before I finish The Woman in White too, Rebecca. And I think I started reading it before you. :-) I am enjoying reading it too, but I find it is easy to get caught up in something else when I've set it down.

    I have been wanting to read Midwives. I read another of Chris Bohjalian's books a few years ago and fell in love with the author's writing.

    I hope you have a great week.

  3. bermudaonion- It really is. I like how he breaks up the chapters- all about restaurants in one, about grocery stores in another, purchasing agents in yet another. It is a good way to organize the information.

    LiteraryFeline- How far along are you in The Woman in White? I haven't read anything else by Bohjalian before. So far, so good!

  4. I am in the third section, I believe. About 230 pages in.
