Let me just fire off a quick, rambling, pointless post before I go to work.
I am in a reading slump. I don’t think I’ve read more than 10 books this year. The majority of the ones I have managed to read are under a hundred pages or audiobooks.
What’s worse is I’m wondering if maybe I’m getting dumber? Like…Maybe I can’t read books with lots of words anymore? Even the comics/graphic novels I’ve read haven’t quite interested me.
Or is the internet to blame? The more time I spend on the computer the less I seem able to concentrate. That’s a thing, right? I know I’ve taken breaks from the internet before and found it easier to concentrate, but then I find myself disconnected from people (You’ll have to forgive me if I prefer to get my social fix via blogs and Twitter. Talking to people in real life can make me anxious…or angry.)
I read at whim and I can also be a mood reader. But what do you do when you don’t know what mood you are in?
Ugh. Just ugh.
Dear universe, please send me a book that completely engages me (but not too many words, ok?)
