I’ve been distracted.
I’ve been unmotivated.
I’ve been uninterested.
I have no idea why I’m all weird right now. Nothing major is happening in my life but I’ve been super distracted. I changed up my blog look because I felt it needed a fresh coat of paint but it did nothing to reengage me. Work has been so-so and pretty much the same as well with home life. Maybe I’m bored? Ok not maybe, I’m definitely bored. I’m not sure exactly what to do but I have a few activities planned for the upcoming week so hopefully that helps.
I just wanted to post a quick post, show I am alive and well if not bored out of my mind. I’m postponing my book reviews for a while because it’s taking way to much time to finish a book right now. Updates might need to work in the mean time.
If you’ve ever been in a funk how did you get yourself out of it?
That is me every time I attempt to read Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness. I have a hard time giving up on books. My curiosity screams at me, “We must know what happens” and unless it’s a HORRIBLE book, I just can’t. This book is not a horrible book but It’s just so heavy with unimportant events and a slow moving plot and uninteresting characters. Hence my continued struggle to make it through Shadow of Night, I mean look at my updates…
Since January I’ve returned this book twice to the library. I’m so over reading this book. I dislike giving up on pretty much anything so I decide to find an alternate route to get this book finished. Last night I found and requested the audio version from the library and hope that the audio will be easier to get through. As much as I want to know what happens and how things develop, I’m not reading another word! I’ve heard the lady who does the audio book is fantastic so that is a plus!
Question for readers. At what point do you let yourself give up on a book? Do you toughen up and just keep going or do you throw the book away and be done with it? If you did power through a book, did you feel like it was worth it?
