It’s okay that I’ve been suffering with extreme eye strain, right? I’m not alarmed because I’ve got an eye doctor’s appointment at the end of the month. It’s been a cross between using the computer and reading small print. It’s rather annoying.
I’ve taken on reading “IT” by Stephen King this summer. I hate clowns more than I hate mosquitoes so that should say something about me. It’s been a really good read but the print is small. The book’s size is also overwhelming, 1098 pages. Add it that I’ve been having nightmares from it makes this challenging on another level. I can’t read it before bed. Yup, it’s freaking me out that much.
My bedtime reading is Eileen Fulton’s “As My World Still Turns”. I miss the old guard soaps that used to grace the airwaves. There are only 4 left on the television anymore and that saddens me 😦
I miss Erica and Jackson from All My Children and Lucinda and Kim and Bob from As The World Turns and of course I miss Reva from Guiding Light. So I picked this non-scary book to get me through my night time reading.
It’s been filled with anecdotes of Ms. Fulton’s rise to fame on As The World Turns as Lisa, the one time bad girl who became a friend to all. No nightmares from this story.
IT is really good and I don’t like putting it down. Not just because my paperback version has Tim Curry as Pennywise on the cover but because it’s a good read. I also think knowing very little about the story has been good as well.
Everyone knows about Georgie and is floating boat but that’s pretty much the only party of the story I knew about. I will never see the movies. I do not like scary movies. Even though I’ve seen some of them in my day I’m not particularly fond of them.
I looked at the pile of books at my bedside and beside my spot on the sofa and I’m overwhelmed by how many books I need to catch up on. The pressure sometimes parallelizes me but I’m motoring on with high hopes!
My reading isn’t helping the eye strain blurriness at all. Again, I motor on.
The summer has been so humid. You would think I would be read more just to stay inside in the air conditioning, lol. Oh well, Back to the grind. Wish me luck!
