Happy Wednesday, fellow reading addicts!
Well, I made it back to the United States, safe and sound. A minor issue with TSA when I landed, but I was patient and a little snarky and it all ended up all right. And after 36 hours of being awake, I was home and sound asleep. I’m still catching up on the jetlag issues from everything. I was told it takes a week or so to iron out your system. At least this trip seemed to have reset my sleep pattern, which was desperately needed.
Now to catch up on everything I got behind on while returning and catching up on sleep last week and this week. No rest for the wicked.
Fun reading-related question for the week: What is your beverage of choice while reading? Is it the same, or does it change with the season or time of day?
Second reading-related question: Do you read seasonal-themed books during that season? Ie. Halloween stories in October, Christmas stories in December, etc.?
Enjoy and happy reading!
