Question – Do You Ever Feel Like NOT Reading?

Question Visual Again

I love to read. You love to read. We all love to read. But sometimes, I can’t read as much as I would like because of life and other types of crap. At those times, I feel like I’m missing an important part of my day. A piece of my soul even! Okay, maybe not that last one, but I do feel like I missed something important that day.

I can’t say that I have ever (since ‘returning to reading’ anyway) NOT felt like reading. I have felt less than enthusiastic about reading because a book was not good but never have I lost the urge to read completely. But I know that some of you have…

So this week I would like to know if YOU have ever felt like NOT reading. Just because. And if this has happened to you, did you ever figure out WHY?

  1. Usually if I don’t feel like reading it is because I don’t feel good or I’m exhausted and even reading takes too much effort. Other than that, I usually want to read if given the chance.

  2. I go through changes. Some weeks all I want to do when I come home from work is read and read some more. Other times, I will go a week and just binge on Netflix and read very little. It changes depending on my mood.

  3. Barbara Elness says:

    Nope, I’ve never felt like not reading, even when there’s nothing to read, I’m reading signs, and advertisements, etc. I just can’t stop. πŸ˜€

  4. Oh yes! I have gone through couple of reading slumps. Lately they are more genre focus, so that’s better, because there are other books I still enjoy.

  5. This sometimes happens to me in small spurts. I’ll go a week without reading anything, and then read a complete book or two in one day.

  6. Like most other commenters, my reading intensity varies, but I read almost every day. I read an hour or more a day at work on breaks/lunch no matter what. I read for an hour or two before bed most days. The variance comes in whether or not I take any time to watch TV/movies/games or fill all the rest of my time reading.

    Only days I don’t read are days I don’t work, don’t feel like reading while at home, and don’t go to bed until I can’t keep my eyes open any longer.

  7. Melanie – It’s amazing how when we are sick, it’s hard to read. You would think that our brains would want to read then the most to help us calm and heal lol

    Amber – Netflix is a powerful alternative to reading πŸ˜‰

    Barbara – You go Barbara!

    Bookaholic Cat – Thank goodness they are genre based. I would really worry if it were ALL books πŸ˜‰

    Sarah – Wow. That is a lot of books in one day! *jealous*

    Iain – Games <--- the reason my husband no longer reads πŸ˜€
