In a slump

This weekend I’ve managed to finish one book (Hey Nostradamus! by Douglas Coupland — review coming later), but then the air sort of went out of me. I’ve started four books and am getting nowhere in any of them. Simply put, I’m in a slump.

I get like this sometimes and don’t read for weeks. I hope this one won’t last that long, though, as I have a couple of pretty easy work weeks coming up, and I’d really like to spend that extra free time on reading. Perhaps I shall re-visit old favourites for a bit of comfort reading.

    I hate when that happens, that is, being in the middle of a more than one book and feeling like “what’s the point.” In general, when I’m in a reading slump, I get so depressed. I don’t know how the rest of the population gets by without reading. When I have a book I’m excited about, my life is automatically happier. Hope you ride out of your slump!
