Apparently there’s such a thing as too much reading.

Last week I had some trouble with my eyesight. Both the doctor and the optometrist agreed it was eye strain. I had to drastically reduce the amount of time I spent reading and using the computer. As a consequence, there will be no posts this week.

At this stage, blogging should resume as normal next week. However, my recovery has been slow and I may need some extra time. I’ll be sure to let you know if that turns out to be the case.

In the meantime, I’m keeping myself entertained by listening to the archives of the Reading the End podcast. The Demographically-Similar Jennys are utterly charming and make podcasting seem like a lot of fun. They review books across a range of genres (though tending towards the literary), play games and discuss their thoughts on common tropes. I highly recommend them.

Hope to see you all next week.

      Thank you! They’re already improving, but I’m struggling with the reading restrictions.

    Oh dear!! I hope your poor eyes get better and that you have plenty of audio material to occupy your mind. I’m glad at least you’re enjoying our podcast — thanks for all your lovely words about us! 🙂

      Thank you! I’ve been enjoying the podcast so much and keep wanting to respond to things, though the episodes I’m listening to are now over two years old. I might have to start writing you emails for the current episodes.
