Grown-Up Saturday Morning Cartoons/Article Round-Up: April 29 – May 4

Good morning, y’all — I’m a bit fuzzy-brained this morning after staying up waaaaaaay too late reading, so I’m nursing a behemoth cup of java as I write this.

For me, at least, there are few things more enjoyable than getting totally sucked into a book. I love it when I can’t bring myself to put a book down, even as my eyelids start feeling like they’ve been weighted with anvils. (Eventually the need for sleep wins out, but this is basically the only context in which I’ll fight off the desire to head out to dreamland.)

The only problem with this situation comes when my body decides it wants to wake up early, in spite of having stayed up late the night before. Habits die hard, y’all.

Anyways, this week’s article round-up is below; grab a beverage, read, and enjoy!

    I am the same way with books! I sometimes stay up super late reading a good one but then my body wakes me up early – hate that. Lately I’ve been trying to finish a book but can’t seem to read more than a few pages before falling asleep so it’s taking me forever!

    I completely commiserate with your literary-induced sleep deprivation! Books have the ability to keep me awake practically all night, so I have to set an alarm on my phone to remind myself to turn off the light. Does it work? 95% of the time, no. Pinterest is beginning to have the same effect, which is very unfortunate. I feel okay about staying up all night to read, but salivating over food porn is another story. πŸ˜‰

    Thanks again for the great link-up! I’m off to peruse… πŸ˜€ Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend! ❀

      Omigod, I can completely relate — my Kindle might join forces with Pinterest to ensure that I never sleep again. I spend waaaaaaay too much time searching for inspirational quotes and food porn…and design porn…and humor…ok, basically, I get sucked into the Pinterest vortex by almost anything. πŸ™‚
