As I wrote the title to this post, I'm reminded that I may have already written about this dilemma I have. I'll have to check.
Reader's Block is sort of like Writer's Block. There are three varieties.
1. No time to read. Which, in general, is not an excuses I'll accept. There are short periods of time when I don't have the time to read, but none of these last more than a week or so. Unless I've recently gotten a season of CSI on dvd or something, and then that takes precedence over reading.
2. I don't feel like reading. Usually this could be some sort of indicator that there is something seriously wrong with me. I read constantly. But I do have periods of time when I'm just worn out from reading. This year, for instance. Last year I read like crazy. Over 22,000 pages. In 74 books. That was extreme. That was twice as many pages as I'd ever read in a year (at least since I started keeping track). I may have read more the summer I was 10 or so and I read every Babysitter's Club Book I owned at least twice, probably three times. So far this year I've read 8,013 pages in a whopping 24 books. This time last year, I had read more than twice as many books and more than twice as many pages. I think last year wore me out a bit on reading.
3. I can't decide what to read next. This is where I am now. I have books I own that I haven't read and would like to. I have a list of books I would like to check out from the library and read. It's just that none of them are screaming at me to read them next. I should post a list of all the books I've read in the last 8 years (since I've been keeping track) and have you, based off the books I've already read, suggest new ones. You could be like my personal librarian or small book shop owner. But that would be a really long post, 264 books worth (a few repeated).
So, what should I read next?
