Colds & Flu Reads

It's that time of the year here in Australia - cold and flu season that is - and people are being knocked off their feet and into bed for days on end by this dreaded flu season.  However, I've noticed that when I'm sick, I read like you wouldn't believe, and I don't stay in bed for long.  Normally, I force myself out of bed, have a boiling hot shower and get my butt out into the Winter sunshine and have a good, thick book in my hands while there's a hot cup of tea in the other.

So, my question to you guys is:  do you read while you're laid up with the colds and flu?  Or do you listen to your ipod, surf the net or make tons of popcorn and watch all the dvds in your collection?  What do you get up to during the times you're sick; seeing you know what I get up to... until my next post, happy reading!


  1. I just got over a cold the past few days and it is officially summer here. I usually am wiped out and exhausted when I am sick and want to do nothing but sleep, stay in my pajamas or maybe watch television and read emails. As I begin to get better I'll continue my reading ventures and do more surfing on the computer etc.

    1. I can't stand being in my pajamas all the time... or stuck inside. It's just something that I've been taught; to get out of bed and into the sunshine to warm up. And usually the sun and fresh air will help get rid of the cold faster too. :D

    2. Hanging out in my pajamas all day and staying indoors, isn't what I call fun either... But when I'm sick, I usually feel too crappy to care one way or the other about my appearance or being indoors during the early stages of a cold. Once I begin to feel better, I do get out of bed and make it outdoors as i begin to have cabin fever!
