Today #insixwords: Doctors, libraries, and finances – oh my!

11.30 – Morning! I read a little after midnight last night and this morning. Not much but think I went from page 184 to 221. Have a doctor’s appointment this afternoon and a stash of books to collect from the library so I might turn into the mad reading lady wandering around bumping into tourists and pigeons.

18.25 – I’m back from the library and the doctors. I didn’t bump into any pigeons or tourists but that’s mostly because I ended up texting Hanna instead of read-walking. That’s sort of better for visability! I gave the librarian a big list of recommendations so hopefully they’ll be getting in some Paige Toon and the missing Richard & Judy Summer Book Club reads soon. 😀 Would love to join in with Vicky’s challenge if I can squeeze them in. And I picked up my reserved books. Two steampunks, The Great Gatsby, the Iain M. Banks book for next month’s Fantasy Faction Sci Fi book club read, and The Statistical Probability of Love At First Sight because cute summer reads. Popped off to the doctor’s to see about my upset stomache thingy and got many things lined up to be sorted. Hurrah. And even my doctor is ordering me to read Me Before You now. Oy! I put a reservation in at my library.

22.15 – Ended up going for a drink with the friends upstairs tonight so really haven’t had chance to read much today and have such a splitting headache though I imagine that’s dehydration after not drinking a lot today. But for now, I’m going to bed with a glass of squash, half a sliced orange and my book. Hopefully I can manage 100 pages by midnight but looking doubtful.
