What happens when reading becomes a struggle?
The last few months I’ve struggled with reading. At first, I didn’t think much of it. Now, I’m actually worried.
Reading has always been something that comes naturally to me. I almost always have a book in my hand (or on my phone, or Kindle, or MacBook). This development is new.
I can’t seem to finish anything.
If you opened my Kindle right now, you’d see about 10 unfinished books. The same goes with my Playster audio book account.
Both of them are reminders that I’m not reading. Staring me back in the face.
As of right now, it’s June 21st and I haven’t finished a single book this month. Last month, I’d only read one book up through about May 21st. At first, I wasn’t worried because I had friends visiting from out of town, then I was sick with the flu. So, I didn’t have time to read.
But it was sort of the same story. I read three books last month in total. And two of those were crammed into the last two or three days of the month.
I felt like I was cheating. I specifically picked two books that were super short so I could just ‘get through them.’
You’ll see the results in my summary too. I gave them all three’s, I wasn’t feeling them.
