Okay, so it has been months that I have been stuck on a book from Book Club. It just has not kept my attention even though it is actually interesting. Perhaps it is because it is depressing and it not really told in a way that makes me properly connect with any of the characters. I think it is fiction based on true events, but in any case I am struggling through it. Now, some people might say to just put it down and leave it. However, my reading nature will not let me…once I start a book it must be completed! I know….
A month or so ago I bought two books. One on the Kindle that I could read on my phone since I use my iPad mini for the book mentioned above. This way, I thought I would enjoy reading when I am waiting for something, but not allow myself to get fully sucked in until I finish the other one….
Then, seeking a book of some intellectual stimulation I bought a paper book (yes they still make these!) to read when I go to the beach or the pool since reading digitally can become difficult when the device gets overheated or the sun is glaring a bit too bright. 😉
The problem with this method is that I end up not reading any of them because each book has been mentally allocated to a particular purpose. I thought perhaps I just need a good page-turner (James Patterson or something) to kick start my reading frenzy again. I still have not decided.
However, I have put more effort into finishing the initial book because I think once it is done and dusted I will feel freer to read other things…only 10 more hours to go on it according to Kindle. 😛
In the meantime, I am putting together other titles to add to my list of possible summer reads. I am getting excited about this as I write, so I guess maybe I will be reading more soon!!! 😀
