Am I the only one having trouble reading? I find myself looking at the same words and sentences page after page. Apparently, I’m not alone. Many of us are hitting the wall when it comes to reading. For those of us who have to write reviews, its even more difficult.
Here are a few ways I’m trying to get myself back on page.
- Short Stories: Great for short attention spans. I love A.M. Homes and anything by Dani Shapiro.
- Light it up: Try some romance novels. You know the book is going to end happily ever after, so it’s easier to get into it. Check out anything written by Sophie Kinsella, Jasmine Guillory and Abby Jimenez.
- Everyone’s talking about audio books: While listening you can do other things like errands around the house while listening.
Worse comes to worse, pour yourself a glass of wine and veg out for a bit before trying again. We’re in this together. Don’t worry, you’ll be back on page sooner rather than later.
