It’s not you, it’s me. For the love of reading.

I used to love to read. I gobbled up at least one book a week. Now, I am reading three books at once and can’t seem to finish any of them. I get bored and start a new one, thinking okay this one looks good. I might get through a chapter and I’m bored again. After a couple of days I pick up one of the books and I get through maybe three pages before I set the book or my Kindle down. Now I know it’s not the book, because it’s a good book and I want to know what happens but I just can’t seem to read that far. I didn’t have this problem before I became an author. Now all I see is plot and structure and characters, I can no longer see a story. I don’t know if I’m in a funk or if I will just get used to it and find a way to see the stories in books again? Anyone else have this issue? If so, please let me know how do you fix it.

  1. I have started picking up more than one book too. I find it’s overwhelming when I have more than one started because I like finishing all the books I start. I have been thinking about this as well. Perhaps you (and me) are just in a funk and need a few days to focus on other things? I hope you get out of the funk soon!

    • LOL, This has been going on for a year. I think I’ve read cover to cover maybe four books in the last year!

      Thank you for the reply. Good to know it’s not just me!
