I can’t seem to finish a book anymore. I have favored the immediate gratification of eBooks lately, and am quick to shop (so Barnes & Noble loves me), but they seem to just pile up on my virtual nightstand.
I’ve tried a variety of genres, from romance to historical fiction, from inspirational to biography. I have even tried reading along with my son’s English class.
I blame the convergence of chemo brain, a busy schedule, an ever-decreasing attention span, my own writing and 100 other little things. There’s always an excuse.
I’ve noticed, too, the frequency with which I find my son sitting in front of the TV with his computer on his lap. Dual-sceening (or what that be duel-screening). It’s slipping into a problem and I am setting a less than stellar example.
So, just as soon as NaBloPoMo is over, I’m setting my sights on not just reading, but finishing a book a month!
I’m taking suggestions – for books and for finding the time. Virtual book club anyone? Let me know!
