Procrastination Setback #1: Book Reviews. It's always the book reviews. I got my awesome new pack of reviews and promptly read this series fiction chapter book, and did not promptly write the the review. So then, I started carrying the book with me and after a couple days of that, I gave it away! What was I thinking? Now I have no book, no review, and no idea how I'm going to pull this off. I'll have to count on my amazing memory for details. I'm sunk. But as the internet as my witness, my reviews will go out next week!
It's not that this book isn't good, it's just slow. I'm a fan of intricate and fully developed characters. I'm a fan of different narrators and points of view. I'm even becoming a fan of baseball, but added together I'm just getting bored. I'm waiting for this book to go somewhere, and so far, it's just not happening. I'll hang in there since I'm determined to finish a book club book, but I think that I will bow out of book club next year. It's just not my scene.
To all of my fellow procrastinators out there--fear not! All this work will get done. Someday. Probably not today, but maybe next week, after a long weekend full of napping. Maybe.
