Plugged In (1)





I'm going to make the best of the fact that I can only manage audio books and the occasional e-book right now and tell you each week what I'm "reading" in a new feature here on Lost in the Library called Plugged In.

This Week:

(Love love this author and scientist)





(I'm so far behind in this series)

What are you plugged in to or reading this week?

When a Reader Can't Read


  In October this past year I was in a pretty bad car accident. I was stopped, I was hit from behind and pushed into oncoming traffic and hit again. It was awful. Among other injuries, I suffered a concussion which months later I'm still recovering from. I had no idea the impact a concussion could have on my daily life. Headaches, blurry vision, ear and eye pain, sound sensitivity, dizziness, fatigue and nausea to name some of the symptoms.
   I'm also so limited in the amount of reading I can do. It takes me two/ three days to write a blog post, and I can't get through more than a page or two of text without feeling woozy or dizzy, or needing to re-read the pages because my brain just isn't taking in the information.
    I love to read. It's one of my most favourite things to do, my favourite hobby, it grounds and centres me. It recharges me, and not being able to read even one book these last 6 months has been extremely difficult. People ask me "what are you reading? " and my answer is nothing.
  In addition to not reading, I'm out of the loop. I've lost touch as a book blogger to what's new, what's popular, what are people saying are must reads?

Help me create a must read list for the future

So friends, I'm asking for your help. I want to compile a list of must reads for when I'm better and a list of audio books I can start on now.

What should I add to this list?

With thanks always,
Jen
