ABOUT THE PHOTO
It only rains a handful of days in San Diego. In our first year here, I think we've had a total of five rainy days. Which is why the fact that the skies have opened for the rain to come pouring down in the last ten days is really bumming most people out here. Right as last week's storm began, Jake and I went to the famous San Diego zoo to see the newly-born fossa. While there, I managed to get lucky with a shot of this beautiful feline. We can't remember if it's a snow leopard or a Siberian lynx or something else. It sure is beautiful, though. Taken with the 70-200 f/4.
Concentration Levels of Zero or Below
Anyone who's read my site regularly knows that I adore reading. It's one of the few activities I have consistently enjoyed since the age of four. Despite a short break during the school years in college, I've read at least one book a week for years and years. Even when I was in college, I spent my summers reading avidly just to catch up.
So one would think that throughout the struggles of my pregnancy, I would take solace in my reading. I would bury myself in books. Well, not exactly. In the last six months since I've been pregnant, I've read a total of eight books. Four of these were on vacation in Turkey. That's barely one a month. Before the pregnancy, I'd been reading two a week. I still read the New York Times every Sunday and do a lot of other article reading, but books have been going so slowly. I started Franken's "Lies and ..." two weeks ago and I am only a quarter's way into it.
I seem to be able to read fun books that don't require any concentration, but when it comes to a normal book, my attention span is all of two pages before either my eyes close or I get up to pee. Putting pregnancy reading aside (that's another entry for another day), I really miss reading. So I was hoping you might be able to make some recommendations of easy reading that's really a page-turner. I read everything but romance and fantasy. I am open to all suggestions. At this point, I figure any reading is better than no reading.
Any good suggestions?
