The Question:
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?
The Answer:
I don’t tend to read a lot when I’m sick. I’m a very pathetic sick person, and I generally lay around and watch television until I’m feeling well again, particularly because my illnesses tend to be of the head cold variety, which makes me feel tired and lazy. If I’m sick or injured in some other way that does not make me feel disgusting and exhausted (rare), I will read, but I don’t have a particular genre or anything that I stick to; I just read whatever I’d be reading normally.
