BEDA Day 13

Yesterday afternoon Rickie directed me to India Knight‘s Blog and her list of ultimate comfort reads.

When I’m poorly, if I’m not sleeping then reading or watching a DVD tends to be next on the list – mainly because reading keeps me reasonably calm and then I can sleep again if I feel like it.

I tend to read what ever I’m reading at the time. But I guess if I was off for more than a few days I’d be calling into favours to my friends to mail me books or lend me DVDs.

    Just saying hello! Thanks for visiting my blog 🙂

    You should move the Scott Pilgrim books to the front of the list. They are the best! We’re going to see the movie in the theatre tomorrow.

      Scott Pilgrim doesn’t come out here for another two weeks so I’ve got plenty of time lol. I just need to make it into town at some point!

      Also the books aren’t really in any particular order – it seems to change every week as to which I want to read first lol.
