For the past week I've been in an epic reading slump where two pages read feels like an accomplishment. It's infuriating.
The thing is...I'm not a person who reads when I don't want to. If I feel burnt out on reading or feel like I just want to do something else for a few days..I do it. I don't feel compelled to read if I don't want to. I might always have a book with me, just in case, but I might not read for a couple days. And that's okay with me. I don't want to force it if I'm burnt out.
But the thing this time around is that I can't tell if it's the current book I'm reading (The Signature of All Things by Elizabeth Gilbert) or if it's ME. I can't tell if I'm just super stressed with job hunting and other things or if I'm burnt out and I don't know it.
The book is quite slow, yes, but I don't mind that typically. I don't have any opinions of it really at about 18% in so I don't know if I want to put it down or not. I just seem to not want to pick it up and I hate that I can't figure out if it is the book or maybe I'm not in the mood for that TYPE of read or if it's just ME and no matter what book I'd pick up would be the same.
Does my dilemma make sense?
