Imagine going from reading approximately 14 books per month to barely finishing one. I’m telling you, the struggle is too real. It’s time to face the facts; I’m simply not reading as much as I used to.
My love for reading is definitely still there but where I used to put books above all, I’m now putting other things first. Priorities and all that. Apparently life outside the blogosphere is a thing. Who knew?
Currently I’m reading like a million books and I can barely remember the page numbers I left off on. I’m getting into that mood where I’ll just put books on hold and come back to it when I know for sure that I can finish it. I’d rather do that than enter a reading slump because all readers know how uncool that is. You want to read but at the same time you can’t bring yourself to actually read anything and you just end up hating the story which is totally unfair.
My Read pile is bigger than my Unread but I’m starting to worry because with the way things are going, I’m going to have more of the latter than the former. Maybe I should just stop buying books in general…HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA as if that’s ever going to happen.
I wouldn’t mind reading less if it wasn’t for the fact that I want a functioning blog. My blog is not something for me to stress about, in fact it’s where I release my stress but the longer I take to read, the less reviews I can schedule beforehand. And that’s what the main issue is. This is why audiobooks are a gift. Listening to them in the car instead of the radio, chilling with it at night with all the lights off as you’re going to sleep, taking a morning jog and have the story play out in your ear.
These days when I finish a book that’s more than 200 pages I get so excited because it feels as if I completed a marathon. It has gotten to that point where reading a big book causes me to forget how to English. It might be a problem but I’m not going to make it one.
I like to get lost in the book I’m currently reading so with all the movement going on around me, it gets difficult to concentrate. Also, I look like a couch potato that has nothing worthwhile to do and that’s a no no in my house. These are the struggles of our lives hey. I have this grand idea of reading so much that I’m so far ahead with all my posts and I finally end up taking down that TBR but I have to be realistic and face the facts. That’s not going to happen any time soon. It’s a thing.
Anyway, another random post on another random day. Cheers and adios.
Thanks for stopping by
