How does your being sick (or injured) affect your reading? Do you read more? Less? Do you pick out a different book than you had already planned? Do you have a “comfort book” that makes you feel better?
- For me it depends on how sick I am and what it is I have. If I’m just feeling flu’ish I can still read but if, for example, I have an incident like where I cut my cornea in my eye, I couldn’t read. If I’m really sick then no, normally I read less because I can’t concentrate. If I can read I will normally pick up something lighter so it requires less concentration but no, I don’t have any comfort books. Or wait, maybe I do, I consider my Harry Potter books comfort reads so I could see myself heading for those in bad times.
How about you, does being sick or injured affect your reading? Do you have comfort book you turn to in those times?
