Ha, just realized my list of “Books I’m Reading” hasn’t changed in quite a while. I should retitle it to say “Books On My Nightstand,” since I seem to have stopped reading – at least stopped reading novels and non-fiction.
Hard to imagine – I have been a bookworm my whole life. But with all the writing and revising of my own work, and all the critting, (reading others’ drafts), and the research (reading stories in magazine’s I’m targeting with my own fiction), I’ve pretty much lost my energy/appetite for novels.
What about you? Are you finding it hard to keep up with your reading?
Yep, I’m in the exact same boat, and it makes me VERY sad. After all the hoopla around the movie, I FINALLY read The Hunger Games last week. It was kind of sad that as a YA writer I hadn’t read it already, but I’m glad I finally did it. I really missed reading.
Understandable — and I’m right there with you. Being a s-l-o-w reader doesn’t help matters, either. I’m enjoying Perdido Street Station immensely, but I’ve been at it for three months already.
