Sunday Salon December 7.

I haven't really been finishing any books for a while now. I am reading a lot of non-fiction which has to do with my thesis, but I already blogged about some of those books in an earlier Sunday Salon. I am still not done with the thriller I mentioned in this Sunday Salon, and while I quite like it, I just can't seem to get into it. Now it is just a matter of finishing it. Last weekend I visited my parents. They live way out in the country-side and my sister and I went there for some pre-Christmas joy and to relax a bit. I was supposed to study while there, but as both my parents are avid readers and because I could not get into the real study-mood, I found one of my mother's old paperbacks, Life Support by Tess Gerritsen. I have read several of Tess Gerritsen's books, and some I liked, some were not very good. This one is an okay read, but just like the other book I am reading, I have a hard time really getting into it. I only have a few pages left, so I think I will be done reading it tonight. To conclude it all, I do not think I have had the most interesting reading-week this past week ;o)

I find that when I am heavy into non-fiction reading I have a hard time getting into fiction. I also go through times when nothing I read seems to interst me. Not sure if it is the books I am reading or my mood.

(Replying to your comment about all little boys around you: we have the opposite problem - if you want to call it that - I am surrounded by girls. My mom has six grandchildren and only one boy.

I know what you mean about reading so much non-fiction that there is no "room" for fiction. I may that which is my reading-problem these days ;o)

Oh how I wish I could buy gifts for a lot of small girls...seems like such an easy thing to do, whereas the boys are always difficult...But I guess it is equally difficult when I come to think about it ;o)

Thanks for stopping by.
