After I finished Loot in the hospital last week, I started The Sun Does Shine by Anthony Ray Hinton. It’s a good book. But I’m having a hard time with it. I’m sure it’s not the book. I just haven’t felt like reading much this last week. It happens every few months or so. Every book I pick up doesn’t hold my interest. I start and stop like ten different books. Eventually, I know I will find one that holds my attention. I’m just frustrated because I don’t feel good and haven’t been reading and, thus, haven’t been blogging. Not that I’m really good at it anyway. But I made a commitment to myself to post more than just reviews here. Now is my opportunity.
So, I’m throwing this out to anyone who reads this. How do you get yourself out of a reading rut or a book hangover? Is there any thing that is tried and true and works for you? Do you just wait until your attitude improves? I’m interested to know how other book works deal with this very frustrating thing.
So far, I’m just forcing myself through The Sun Does Shine. It’s the book club book and I need to pass it to my mom when I’m done. I will finish it this weekend. And I’m going to try not to let my mood influence of my feelings about the book.
