I'm not reading as much as I would like these days, because I have been working overtime for most of this week. I love getting a bit more money into my savings account, especially as the freelance translation work has all but dried up, but the last thing I want to do when I get home after staring at words on a computer screen all day is to stare at some more words on a page.
