Procrastination Item #2534: Book Blogger Hop

I need to finish reading Wolf Hall.  Instead--thank goodness--it's [almost] Friday...the Crazy-for-Books blog hop is just the thing to keep me busy doing other things instead.

Wolf Hall is great, but it is one of those books that simply needs to be read consciously in order to be appreciated, and I haven't been finding much quiet-enough-to-really-concentrate time lately.  I've drained my glass of wine (it's night--beverage of choice = wine) so I should be all settled and comfy and concentrate-y, but I'm not.  I need to get my girls to bed (and read to them beforehand).  Then I'll have a couple of good reading hours before I need to go pick up my hunny at the airport.

Sounds like a plan--if I can convince myself to save the book hopping for tomorrow.  Tomorrow morning, with coffee. Sounds great (morning's beverage of choice whilst reading = coffee).

I've come to realize that I have a lot more time for reading books that can be consumed in small snippets than I have time for reading books that require longer stretches of solitude.  It's work finding quiet time in my house!

Off to read about more blizzards to my girls (The Long Winter is no joke--it was a long winter.)  Sorry for the ramble...enjoy the hop!  (and leave me a comment so I can make sure to visit you too!)


  1. Hi, I'm a fellow coffee lover. I find it is a great companion to hopping in the morning. I love the title of you post! Have a fantastic weekend.

  2. Just popping in from the hop. My beverage is Diet Dew, I never aquired a taste for coffee.Have an awesome weekend!

  3. Visiting (and following) you from the blog hop. I truly love your blog! Please stop by The Book Frog if you have a moment.

  4. I'm already a follower just stopping by to say hi.
    Hope you'll stop by and enter one of my many giveaways or sign up to join the Spooktacular Blog Hop or Gratitude Giveaways Hop.

  6. Droppin' by via the hop. My beverage of choice is water or a glass of juice, depends on what's colder. Lol. Anyway, if you have the time, drop by Cladestine Sanctuary

    I also became a new follower. :)

    My Hop

  8. Wolf Hall completely undid me! I couldn't get through it even though I was quite enjoying it. It is still sitting on the bedside and I have read several books since starting it. Currently reading Dracula.

    Have a brilliant weekend and good luck finishing Wolf Hall. I look forward to your review.

  9. Just popping by to say hello.

  10. I tried to read Wolf Hall last Christmas season while working overtime at a retail job. And, the library wouldn't let me renew it (too many holds) or keep it for more than two weeks (new release). Needless to say, I didn't get very far! I'm hoping to give it another shot.

    On another note, I'm impressed that wine makes you concentrate-y. It makes me sleepy!

  11. Hopping over from the blog hop! I am a tea of coffee drinker... anything hot! I'm a new follower. Check out my blog and follow back if you want!

  12. Hopping by, started to follow.

    Come to see Murphy's Library too.

  13. I don't drink when blogging or reading. Blogging and drinking don't mix well, I'm constantly knocking things over or a dog is jumping on me. Hundred pound labs do not a lap dog make. Especially when you discover they've rolled in turkey poop just where you were going to put your hand. Happened this morning. Had I been blogging with my morning coffee, bye bye lap top! So no drinks with the lap top.

    And I'm usually so engrossed in my book that I forget to drink. If I'm not engrossed, I'm not going to finish the book.

    Hope you can visit me. I'll be looking forward to your review on Wolf Hall to see if you were ever able to give it your full attention!
