19th December

Take 2 of Christmas shopping. You know when you are on one of those days where you don’t feel like buying stuff so nothing is appealing to you? Well, that was me last week. Got out to try and buy a present for my mother and got nothing. Although today, I had to go buy a present for a last-minute Secret Santa dinner for tomorrow and got to get back home with not only a present for my mother, but also for my cat and dog. Your little furry, four-legged friends also need some treats at this time of the year.

With a morning lost on shopping and an afternoon filled with writing Christmas posts, I haven’t picked up the book. After dinner, I read for an hour or maybe less since I’m not in the mood to read. I just want to lay down and go to sleep. It was a long day.

This is really bugging me. I don’t feel that I’m in a mood to read this book or any other in fact. I can’t concentrate on the story and it’s starting to annoying me since half of the book is just drawings. I’m enjoying the artwork and how it relates to the story, but I’m not 100% invested in the book which is a shame. I don’t want to force myself to read just because my goal was to finish it today, that would be unfair. I can get a bad idea from it if I’m forced to read, like the required reads in school.

I’ve made some progress but I have to get ready for my Secret Santa dinner I don’t know at what time I’ll be home but if it’s soon I’m going to try and read the rest before going to sleep, even if it passes midnight and counts on the other day. I already have one book yet to finish, so I can’t start accumulating them, or else I’m not going to read 12 books until the 24th.
