I was born with a reading list I will never finish.
I find myself with an ever growing reading list...with tons of books I really want to read. And then.....not reading anything for weeks or longer. Then, just as suddenly as I stopped, I am reading voraciously.
I have a terrible habit of reading myself to exhaustion. Going through so many books, so quickly, that I simply cannot read another without an extended break. I go from reading constantly to not reading at all.....I won't even have a "current" book that I slowly work through....just nothing.
Meanwhile, as I am not reading anything, I will be adding new books to my to-read shelf. It's almost as if I would rather read the blurbs and maintain the promise of an exciting read than actually read the book.
It's a strange habit that I a trying to break actually. I would much rather be reading books at a slower pace than not at all. I sometimes find myself in a book hangover which I am OK with. Sometimes you just need a minute before you can move on. But the longer stretches of time without an active read just seem to be wasteful of me.
Just my random thought of the day!
