Crook as a Chook

I'm not a well person right now.  Over the weekend, I caught a cold off another volunteer at the art gallery I volunteer at and today I was told by the doctor to take it easy and rest, drink lots of fluids and relax.... well, okay, can do!
So, this is what I'm going to do:  I'm going to begin a Get Well Read-a-thon for myself.  Seeing I've only got a good dose of the common cold, I'll read as many books as it takes to get rid of it.  If I need to be well-rested, that's what I will do.  I will be needing a list of books... so here are the ones I hope to get into over the next week or so:

Finishing off: 

'The Drawing of the Three' by Stephen King

Get Well Reading Pile:

'The Wastelands' by Stephen King
'Wizard & Glass' by Stephen King
'Generation Dead' by Daniel Waters 
'The Devil and Miss Jones' by Kate Walker
'The Big Questions: The Universe' by Stuart Clark
'The Big Questions: Philosophy' by Simon blackburn
'Dandelion Wine' by Ray Bradbury

Now, these books are written down in no particular order, which means, they will be picked up in no real order either... however, once I finish off the first book up the top there, I'll be onto the Get Well Reading Pile.
So, while you're crook with a cold or the flu, do you read?  Or is sleep the only thing on your mind?  Until my next post, happy reading.


  1. I've always loved Dandelion Wine. And I really must get to the Stephen King stuff.

    1. I've been meaning to get into The Dark Tower Series, and seeing it's so popular, I thought to give it a go this year.

      So far, it's brilliant! :D

  2. Feel better soon!! I detest being sick with anything. If I am sick with a cold or flu, I sleep/rest, take necessary meds, fluids, etc. and then alternate between watching television or reading when not sleeping or bemoaning the fact that I am sick!

    1. And the worse part of this is that I know who gave me the silly thing! :(

      So, after overdoing it yesterday and nearly collapsing, I have been good today. I washed my sheets, checked the mail, picked up some much-needed tomatoes and other stuff from the fruit market and milk from next door, I've been home stuffing around on the net since around 10am. :D Yes. I'm behaving myself today. :D

      Feeling horrible, coughing and blowing my nose, but not pushing myself too hard. I am reading Dandelion Wine though... got into it last night before bed. :D
