I'm mostly still in my mood. I've almost finished a travel book, but that is the only thing that's held my attention. I want to escape into a really meaty novel, but nothing appeals to me. I think travel books are my reading for the rest of the summer. I have a couple on Italy and one about Wales. I like them because they are exciting and full of adventure, but you can read them in small doses without losing the flavor of the book. I am attempting to read The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger -- we'll see how it goes!

I am having a reading depression. Everything I pick up dissatisfies me and I am very frustrated by my lack of interest. In times like these I usually turn to magazines or books that you don't have to concentrate on. I've been reading back issues of the Ensign and a travel book that has short chapters. I thought about starting a classics reading plan and I checked out The Color Purple, but I lost interest after the 2nd page. What is wrong with me? Do you ever get in these weird moods? I know it will go away soon, but dealing with it in the moment is irritating.
