Readers Block

So I’m sure most people have heard of writer’s block. But what about reader’s block?

I can’t be the only one who goes through periods of time where I just don’t feel like reading. And I don’t get it. I looooooooooved reading as a kid.

I think I had more book friends than real friends. I could always be counted on to have a book with me wherever I went.

Now… well, I seem to have lost my oomph for reading. I still enjoy reading, don’t get me wrong. However, I don’t always carry books around with me. (Unless you count the book apps I have on my phone.)

Sometimes I wonder if my attention span has gotten shorter as I have gotten older. Sheesh, that makes me sound ancient. I ain’t ancient. Just so you know.

I think this is just a temporary thing. I seem to go through bouts of reading, and not reading.

I do enjoy listening to books. Probably because I have more time to do so. I can listen/read at work. Once I’m home I like to play. šŸ™‚

I think I started re-reading some of the books I enjoyed as a kid was so that I could get back into the reading groove. It was going pretty good until I read the “Alien” book. (See previous post.)

That kind of knocked me off my reading game. Weird how strongly that affected me. But, I shall persevere! I will read again!

Imagine me wearing my glasses, fist held stoically in the air, and marching off to the library to find the next great adventure to read. šŸ˜‰
