I haven’t posted in a while. It’s been one thing after another in my life. And now I’m in the process of doing a long-distance move, heading back to Colorado. So writing review–and even doing much reading–has taken a backseat to other activities. (Like madly cleaning out my house since December to be able to downsize!)
I also came across an article posted on BookRiot about reader burnout. Yup, I have to admit this spoke to me loud and clear. While I did have a lot going on since the holidays that took up much of my time and energy, I also suffered a bit from reading “overload”. It made me not want to read anything. I’m sure there are others of you out there who can relate.
I am a big fan of audiobooks and that has helped me through this period of reader’s slump. Books read by a friendly voice are great distractions from whatever I’m currently obsessing about as I lie awake in the night. I’m currently listening to the Spellmonger series by Terry Mancour. I’m on book number 2 and am loving the series so far.
I have started doing some reading again — familiar authors and series — the equivalent of book “comfort food” and it feels good to be getting into the reading groove again. I am currently reading the 4th installment of the Amos Decker series, The Fallen by David Baldacci.
The movers come Monday. I expect March will be a blur. And I’m moving into a very different lifestyle which hopefully will “upgrade” my life. But, I’m starting to feel that readers’/blogger’s itch again, so I do plan to post reviews soon again–just perhaps at a slower pace. See you soon in The Brown Bookoft, Readers!
