I must say that my journaling got a bit distracted by a book. I've been lost in books this summer, it has always been a good distraction for me. I learned to read at an early age and found the escape of books a great way to spend my time. I've learned to judge my mood by my ability to read knowing I feel good when I can and that I am on the road to troubled times when a book can not hold my interest. My bedside table is piled high with recommendations from friends, newspapers, blogs ect. ect. I have no particular interest although I do love a good mystery. Yesterday I went to a used bookstore and spent my pedicure money on books!! I bought "Blindness" the Noble prize winning novel by Jose Saramago, he died just a few days ago and someone at work recommended the novel to me. I hope those of you who read are enjoying a good book.
