Misery | Stephen King

This weekend past I took part in the #24in48 readathon. I managed just over 16 hours of reading, which was pretty reasonable since I was sick. I loved my tbr stack and made it through 3 books, Misery, The Running Man and Final Girls (which was thrown in at the last minute).

The Outsider | Stephen King

In The Outsider, what starts out as an impossible crime leads to the characters banding together to track down a #maneating #boogieman, for whom #misery is like a gourmet meal, and put a stop to him #onewayoranother

#OctoberXFiles #day4 #Misery For me, having all these amazing books to read & owning the eyes of a 90yrold migraine sufferer is total misery. As soon as I get on a roll with kicking my #bookslump without fail I get an eye strain headache that turns into a migraine. I have an appt to get my eyes tested again but new glasses for me, coz my vision is so bad, cost over $600, which we don‘t have. Excuse me while I go sit in a corner & rock quietly.

Susannah I'm so sorry. That is a misery. Do you like audiobooks? Can you find any of these on audio through your library? 😢 (edited) 1y
Rissreads I‘m really sorry you are having such a hard time. I know how miserable I would be if I couldn‘t read. Yes, have you tried to source some of these books to listen too as @Susannah suggested? I often get the bigger books on my tbr shelf on audio to listen too. Fingers crossed you are back reading soon 💙 1y
Rissreads Do you have an account on audible? I would love to gift you one of these books if you do. 😘 1y

Lizpixie @Susannah @Rissreads thank you for the suggestions lovelies, I‘ve actually been an audible member for over ten years & have accumulated around 500 audiobooks so far! I love them but sometimes I just want to lose myself in a print book, especially if it‘s a complicated story. With audio, it‘s easy to get lost if you miss a crucial plot point. But yes, I do love to listen when I can‘t read. I‘m actually audio booking A Discovery Of Witches now.👍❤️ 1y
Rissreads Would a kindle help with the eye strain? Apparently you can change the print size and lighting and background colour? I know it‘s not the same as holding a book in your hands, but, it‘s still reading.... 1y
Lizpixie @Rissreads oh, thank you for the offer you wonderful litten! I still have 2 credits on my account to use, but you‘re an angel to offer.😇 1y
sisilia I‘m so sorry, @Lizpixie Would large print edition help? 1y
JennyM Hugs to you Liz xx 1y
Cinfhen I‘m sorry, Liz 😞I love all the wonderful suggestions & offers!!! #LittensAreTheBest 😍😍😍 I do wonder about Large print editions?? Have u tried?? 1y
LeeRHarry Oh Liz I‘m sorry that reading is giving you migraines 😔 large print books sound like they could be worth trying, I hope you find a solution very soon xx 1y
julesG Hugs! 1y
Chrissyreadit @Lizpixie are you in the US? The Lions Club is a national organization that helps with eyeglasses. Not sure of your situation... Also there is an organization for the blind or people with limited vision that provides a large magnifier for Books. My grandmother used it when she still had some vision and it helped significantly. 1y
2BR02B Have you considered creating a GoFundMe page to help with financing your glasses? Litsy is such a generous community, and I'm sure many of us would be willing to donate a few bucks for the sake of a fellow reader. 1y
Amandajoy I‘m sorry to hear. I understand the frustration with expensive glasses, I gave the same problem. Can you use the same frames? (I know that only cuts down costs a little bit, but every little hit helps.) 1y
Suet624 I‘m so sorry to hear this. 1y
GlassAsDiamonds Tad late but if you‘re in Sydney; my optometrist is a wonderful, wonderful guy who prices really well. Would large print, blue light reading lamps or reading in prescription sunglasses help? (Glasses wearer for many years so I totally feel your pain. If any of these could help, just let me know!) 1y
Lizpixie @sisilia @Cinfhen @LeeRHarry I know my local library has a big section of large print books, plus I‘m going to buy one of those magnifier bookmark/ruler from Dymocks @JennyM @julesG @Suet624 thank you all for the love 💕 1y
Lizpixie @Chrissyreadit I‘m in Australia unfortunately, glasses just aren‘t covered which is ridiculous. Thankyou for the suggestion❤️ @2BR02B thanks for the suggestion lovely, I‘m sure they would coz Littens are the best people! But I‘ll manage, we always do😘 @Amandajoy I‘m actually considering that option, thank you!👍 @GlassAsDiamonds thanks lovely, I‘m considering large print & reading magnifiers. I‘ve not heard of blue glasses?🤔 1y
GlassAsDiamonds Depends what‘s causing your headaches - sometimes the tint can help (there are even ones with one red and one green lense!!). Blue tint ones can ease eye strain, especially if you‘re reading under bright lights for the clarity. 1y

I've been meaning to read Alexievich for years, especially this one. I'm sure there's no shortage of #misery in these survivors' accounts.
@Cinfhen @Robothugs

SkeletonKey I‘m currently reading it but very slowly because...ouch. 1y
Cinfhen I‘ve already stacked this book...it does sound like heartbreaking read & now @SkeletonKey comment has me nervous to even try reading it..... 1y
SkeletonKey @Cinfhen - It‘s worth it, I think the stories these people have to tell should be heard for sure. 1y

When a good series goes bad, it is #misery for reading fans. I loved the first 15-18 of these books. But now, they are just ridiculous. It makes me mad. And miserable.

#octoberxfiles @Cinfhen @Robothugs

sisilia In my case, it‘s Patricia Cornwell‘s Kay Scarpetta series. It started really good! 1y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @sisilia Yes! I read a LOT of those but just got bored after a while. 1y
Owlizabeth Oh LKH, how I wish I could quit you. 1y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Owlizabeth I hear ya. I‘m two behind right now. But I‘ll prob have a moment of weakness. And then I‘ll be miserable. 1y
Cinfhen I couldn‘t agree more about favorite series going off the rails 😫😫😡🤬and yet, we keep reading, hoping what we once loved will return!! 1y
