I wrote a while ago that I was going to start trying to alternate my recreational reading, between books I've been meaning to get around to, and fun, fast young adult books. It had been going well for a while, but the last young adult book I finished was Will Grayson, Will Grayson -- which was a while ago.
Since then, I've been pushing my way through Moxyland, a relatively recent cyberpunk book I've been meaning to read for about two years now. And it's not that it's a bad book. I don't think it's a bad book. But I'm finding that I'm having the same sort of trouble I always have in getting through it. I get to these points where I just don't want to pick up a book in my free time.
I'm not sure whether the young adult thing is working -- because I really want to get to The Fault in Our Stars, and that has been prodding me to pick up the book more than I think I might otherwise be doing. But I'm crawling through this book, and I don't want to be.
Talk to you tomorrow.
