Ugh, the flu. Forty-eight hours on the couch seems like an ideal opportunity to get some serious reading done. But when I’m sick, I always seem to end up watching a zillion hours of television I usually wouldn’t even glance at. Reading requires investments of thought and energy that watching television doesn’t. Besides, if I have to get up to vomit or fall asleep sometime during the middle of a show, I’m not really missing anything, right?
What about you? Do you read when you’re sick?
