Books are a big staple in my home. I have entirely too many books to be honest. My bookshelves are double lined with rows of them. What doesn’t fit onto the shelves are stacked on desks, tables or other various flat surfaces.
And then to add to my own collection, my children are the same way. In fact, as I look around my living room, I think that maybe we borderline having an obsession…
Even with as many books as we own, we spend quite a bit of time borrowing from the local library. We’ve already visited three times just this past week.
(I’ve also been to the local book store this week too.)
With this being said, I find myself being in a reading slump. I can’t seem to get hooked on anything. Each one that I pick up, I get a portion of the way through and then have to force myself to finish. And most of these books are written by authors that I normally love.
I’ve tried different genres, authors, best sellers, not best sellers, you name it. Usually, I can devour a good book in under a few days. Lately it seems to take me a couple of weeks to finish a standard sized book. Or I become so bored with it that I never finish reading it.
What I want is a really good book.
Have you ever had this happen to you? If so, how did you work your way out of your slump?
