I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

I'm sorry...

I've failed.

Reading became a chore and I didn't think that would ever happen. I've still got review books but I'd stand in front of the shelf and nothing would grab my attention. Not even the new books I've purchased recently (just because I'm not reading doesn't mean I've stopped buying!)

I haven't finished a new book since January! I have started back to reading but so far I've only re-read nine books and it's taken me all month to do it instead of a couple weeks. I wish I could say I've gotten a whole lot of other stuff done but I can't.

Should be coming back next month, a little at a time

Just don't worry about not being able to read. I too have such phases. And I always come back to reading. So you will.

Fretting won't help. Go and chill out on other stuff that interests you. And you will always find us here.

I'm feeling a little bit of that now too. Will be right here waiting for you to come back. :)

Sometimes a break is just what we need. You're in my google reader so I'll see you when you get back :)

I hope it's just a reading slump and that you are doing okay in the other realms of your life! Don't pressure yourself to read, it'll come back and we'll be here.

Looking forward to your return!

Hang in there. Sometimes life happens and we need a break. We'll see you when you return.

Hope all is well! Miss seeing your posts :)

This is something that is common with people who read lots of books. So, you're not peculiar and should not worry, give yourself some time and you'll be ok.

Good luck
