Why Can't I Decide?
It was on January 1st that I happily declared that I was participating in the Historical Fiction Reading Challenge. I have been looking at many other sites to see what people have decided to read for the challenge. I have had a few suggestions from people and I have started to make my list. Why then am I still sitting here, six days later still trying to decide what I am going to read for the challenge? This isn't a life altering decision that must be made... but these days it sure feels like it!
Most decisions I make during the day directly affect my children or the children I teach. Now, as I must make a decision that should bring great enjoyment into my life, I am sitting frozen in place. I am not sure whether to read the books in the Royal Twist or the Twilight Twist...books that inspired the Twilight series. **sigh** How sad that I am dragging my feet on making a decision that should be relatively easy, but the mole hill is turning into a mountain.
So instead of announcing my picks for the challenge, I now am shamelessly reporting back to you that I don't have a clue what I will be reading. I still have 24 days to make a decision and get the book read in order to fulfill the first month's requirement. I also will freely admit that it doesn't help that I am in the process of reading 6-7 other books right now and this may be distracting me just a bit.
Feel free to give me feedback, suggestions or if you want to commiserate with me that would be helpful too! Thanks for reading.
