Today’s muse:
This week’s musing –courtesy of http://collettaskitchensink.blogspot.com — asks…
Do you snack while you read? If so, what is your favorite reading snack?
My response:
Unfortunately yes.  I say unfortunately because I am so wanting to lose weight.  I have been trying to snack on fruits, yogurts, something healthy.  However, I also will snack on pretzels and soy chips.  I find that lately I have been snacking more, because due to medical issues, I tend to doze off while reading.  But if I’m snacking, I don’t.  This week will be a test, since I signed up for a Read-A-Thon, to gauge if wearing a CPAP mask for sleep apnea is helping.   I have a severe case of apnea and it is the cause of me falling asleep during the day.  I feel as if the positives are starting to kick in so this week will definitely let me know if I am right.
What about you?  Do you snack while reading?  And if so, what do you snack on?

August is being hosted by 5 Minutes for Books
Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia of A girl and her books and is now on tour.
According to Marcia, “Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.”

1. How was your weekend?
I was quite busy with doing work for Partners In Crime Tours. Even though it was all work related, it’s work that I enjoy and pride that the company, in one year, has become so successful. I also watched and listened to the weekend’s Olympic events while working.
2. What is your favorite kind of candy?
Chocolate.
3. If I say the word ‘high’ what do you think?
High fives!
4. What are you most looking forward to about Autumn?
No humidity, however, I’m not really looking forward to the cooler weather because along with that comes the change of clocks whereas the days seem too short and also knowing that winter is right around the corner, which I definitely don’t like.
5.  Did you watch the closing ceremony of the Olympics?
Most of it.

  12. Good luck with your C-pap test!

  13. I love snacks, but I don’t snack while reading. I’m too afraid that I’ll get my books or ereader dirty.

  14. Good books! I hope you enjoy them and also get your medical issues resolved. I don’t sleep well either.

    I’m a snacker too! Not necessarily when I’m reading, just whenever I feel like it. And chocolate is always a good thing! 🙂

  15. I think that’s where I am blessed; I have dyslexia and ever since I was a child I’ve had trouble reading, but I’ve always loved to read. I had great marks in reading comprehension because I learned to really concentrate on the book. I read slow, but I was totally locked in; no snacks, no TV or radio. With my e-reader the dyslexia is gone, but I still zone in when I read, so I’m faster, but still no distractions. So dyslexia is a blessing!

    I actually didn’t watch any of the Olympics.

  16. I hope you enjoy all of your books!

  17. Thanks for linking up at 5 Minutes for Books this month!
