Reading Update and Giveaway

I've tried to be a busy and involved reader over the past week but I appear to be suffering from another reading block. This has happened several times this year and I will be adding this to the list of questions/problems to be addressed at my next visit to the neurologist. This is serious people! In 40+ years I've never really had a problem with getting into reading and this year the problem has occurred more than twice in the span of a few months. I don't know if I should chalk this up to age-related problems (I did just hit 50, okay coasted into 50 but still...) or what?


Ah well, on to happier thoughts.
