That goldfish feeling.

I am right smack-dab in the middle of Before I Go To Sleep and had to put it down. I only slept five hours last night (lightening storms) and have got a sort of goldfish feeling going on this afternoon. It's when you pick up a book, read a few pages, and then completely forget what has just happened. For example:

1. Sally walked into the store.
2. ???????
3. Sally walked out of the store.

What the heck? I'm going to have to go back and reread that.

2. She robbed the store.


The book is about a woman who loses her memory every time she goes to sleep. So I've also got a Groundhog Day feeling going on whenever I pick it up; her day starts out exactly the same over and over again.

It's all leading to me feeling more confused than a sheriff from Mayberry at a Willy Nelson concert. I think I'll take a nap and read more later. After finishing the amnesia novel I might start on the George R.R. Martin I've been putting off.


  1. Haha, I do this way too often. And then I find myself reading the same sentence over and over and over again, but not computing.

    Also, George R. R. Martin is great. On book three of Song of Ice and Fire. Hoping to finish it way faster than I did book two, which dragged for way too long in the middle section. So far, book three is moving right along!

  2. I have found that large amounts of coffee help.

    I look forward to starting GRRM when I have the time. I hear it's hard to put down so when I get into something like that; I want to be able to read it as quickly as possible.
