Same here Tracy, as I'm not commuting my reading has basically halved, so far I've only read 3 books this year.  Normally it would be 5 or 6 by now.

I heard as a suggestion that you use the time that you would normally be commuting to read.  Easier said than done I think but just a suggestion.

20, some of them have been very short and I'm obsessively reading at the moment, nothing too tough. I think it's a climb down from several weeks of high stress - my husband had a stroke at Christmas and though we knew he should make a full recovery he wsn't an easy patient!

I have only finished reading 3 books.

I am maybe 20% into The Brothers Karamozov which has really slowed me down and I have put it aside for awhile. It is a 700 page book also.

I am currently reading Rules of Civility which is enjoyable.

Next up will be Snow Falling on Cedars.

Which would mean getting up an hour earlier!  I am trying to avoid really long books at the mo, one of my plans before all this was to finally read the first 2 books in the Wolf Hall trilogy, however I don't think I'd be able to concentrate on them without having something a bit lighter to read in between.

That makes sense. Certain books can be intimidating after all.

I've read 11 so far. A record for me. The main reason is because I broke my wrist last month, so couldn't do any of my other hobbies! Plus I've recently discovered that I can read 2 books at the same time if one of them is a physical book and one is an ebook.

I've just finished my 11th book of the year.  I got bogged down in Dostoevsky (The house of the Dead) so that took longer than I had planned but I love Dostoevsky and I do enjoy struggling with my fiction so the time wasn't wasted. I ended up buying the e-book version because the print size in the paperback was too small. So I flitted between the two, which was interesting.
