What do you do when you just can’t get into a book?
I’m reading Unbroken, which everyone raves about. It’s constant: “Ohhhh, you’re reading Unbroken?!? That was amazing!” That’s a TON of pressure to put on a book, and I kind of expected it to pick me up and carry me away. You know those books that somehow seem to read themselves with no help from you?
I don’t want to offend any fans of this book, I think it’s very interesting. But for whatever reason, I just can’t seem to get into it. I seem to be suffering from a case of reader’s block, with no idea how to cure myself. I’ll read a few pages, then stop. Read a few more, and stop. It’s almost painful.
Every time I think, Oh, I should be reading, I think of a million other things I’d rather do. The motivation I’ve been lacking for weeks magically appears, and my entire “To-Do” list gets done! That’s how hard I’m avoiding this book: even laundry seems more fun. To make matters worse, I have this book on 2 week Kindle loan from the library, and one of my weeks is already up!
The clock’s ticking, and I have no idea how to drag myself through this book. I seem to be the one person in the entire universe who is not completely enamored with this book [yet]; is something wrong with me? Or do I just have a bad case of reader’s block?
