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?
I often read much more and read differently. I will take the opportunity to read something different, since I will have more time. When I had back surgery in 1998 I read quite a few things that I normally wouldn't have - I actually got through Kane & Abel (a chucky book to say the least).
If I'm sick for just one day. I love to read Richard Bach's Illusions or Rachel Carson's Gifts of the Sea.
