Everybody has a sudden urge in something every once in a while. Mostly it’s food, but this time I have the munchies for reading Nancy Drew. It’s probably because of the TV series and watching the film on Prime last weekend. I’ve got the first in the series, written in 1930, which I read several years ago.
Yesterday I looked into the Nancy Drew book series and it turns out there are multiple series. The original one has well over 100 books, but the total of Nancy Drew books is over 400. So that’ll keep me occupied for a while.
I went through a Nancy Drew phase in my early teens. I can remember the paperback books had orange spines. It’s probably why I became a Murderino.
It’s been a while since I got the reading munchies. I take it as a sign my reading slump is slowly passing. It also helps that I’ve thrown out all my reading goals and I’m just reading what I feel like. Also, during the last two months new books in some of my favourite series were released. Which is great, but it now makes choosing what I want to read harder.
April was a good reading month, comparing it to the last nine months or so. I’m not reading as much as before that, but I’m not avoiding reading anymore. During the last couple of weeks I’ve been diamond painting less and reading more. I just need to find a good balance between all my hobbies, and that is proving a bit hard.
It looks like we’re going to have to deal with social distancing and going outside as little as possible for a good while yet. Which means more time to do what I like. Whether that’s reading, something creative or watching TV I don’t care. Like with my reading I now just do what I feel like doing.
