Rekindling My Passion For Books

I’m annoyed. I’ve been trying to read a book for about a month. I bought the book early last year on a spontaneous trip to Barnes and Noble. I have talked extensively up here about how much I have loved to read books throughout my life. Back in 2017 and 2018 I reignited my love for reading. I read so many books in those two years, I chronicled my Goodreads journeys and book reviews in various blog posts some of which you can check out: here, here, and here. I don’t know why I have fallen off with reading, but it is frustrating me. I actually haven’t even purchased a book since last year. Like WTF?! I even considered re-reading some of the books in my bookshelf, but I can’t get the urge to do that either. Maybe I should take a trip to Barnes and Noble or my local library to get the feeling back. I don’t know. I typically read a variety of genres. I like fiction and non-fiction. Historical fiction is very interesting. I love memoirs/auto-biographies as well. Some of the books I bought last year, I tried to read and didn’t have much luck. I think in total last year, I read 2 of the 4 books that I purchased. Maybe I should try audiobooks. I really don’t know. I’ll see what I end up doing. I certainly have enough books in my bookshelf to try something.

  1. I am an avid reader but I go through periods (sometimes for many months at a time) where I don’t read anything. I recently started reading again after an intense period of stress and I read a whole bunch and now it’s slowed down again. It’s a bit frustrating but I know I’ll get back into it. I hope you find your rhythm with it all again!

    1. Molly, thanks for reading. I took a trip to my local Barnes and Noble today and bought two new books. I’m currently reading a book that I had bought last year, that I’m just getting around to. I also donated some books to my local library.
