BEDA 6: Books

I have no school today, so instead of continuing the day the way it's been going with me just laying in my bed, whining about having to go downstairs to get something to drink, I'm going to start this before 10 pm! Yeah!

Ok, well, that ^ was at noon, and this update is coming to you from 7:15. I kind of took a nap and then re-watched some Sherlock and then worked out. So. A for effort? It's still not 10!

I need to read more. Towards the end of 2011 I barely read at all, and I have no idea why. I just didn't and it felt horrible. These past few months have been the craziest of my life, but I've been reading a lot and that has definitely helped. I just...feel better about myself when I read. I've just been to Kayley's blog (http://kayleyhyde.blogspot.co.uk/) and saw her list of books, my best friend does the exact same thing. How do people read so much? How do people get things done?! I need so much more getting-done in my life. What have I gotten done today? Let's see...I ate an entire dark chocolate bunny head without even realizing it. That counts, right? Of course, I did infact have to get up, get dressed, go to class, and then to Mally's with my grandpa to get it first, so really, I have done like, so much today, guys.

I have no idea if I can even remember all the books I've read recently. I guess I'll try, but this is in no order. To make this easier, plays/books read for school count. Also, re-reads for the first time this year (an official rule Kate and I made for our book lists. There's a lot of technicality in book lists).

Books so far in 2012:
The Fault in Our Stars - John Green
The Great Gatsby - F. Scott Fitzgerald
Sloppy Firsts - Megan McCafferty
Second Helpings - Megan McCafferty
The Tempest - Shakespeare
Medea - Euripides
Oedipus the King - Sophocles
A Doll's House - Henrik Ibsen
The Glass Menagerie - Tennessee Williams
The Fellowship of the Ring - J.R.R. Tolkien (mostly, almost done)

That's a little shabby. I'll work on it.

  1. I think you are beating me by a long way! Although I love to read I often don't because I forget or just don't have the time. I'm gonna have to get started too. x

  2. I'm also trying to read more because in 2011 I think I only read like 10 books. :O I set a goal of 35 books this year. Maybe if you set a goal, it'll make reading to that goal easier?

    1. I usually try to set a goal! I just haven't this year for some reason. It does help, though :D
