I Really Like to Read Books, But It Takes Me at Least a Couple of Months to Start Reading. When I Buy a Book, I Lose the Motivation to Read It. What Should I Do?

I highly recommend listening to audiobooks as a workaround. Studies have shown that listening to audiobooks has the same effect on the brain as does regular reading.

After I got my first masters degree in English, I was a bit burned out on reading because it was difficult for me not to tackle reading with analysis and as work. Audiobooks were my way around that, and I listen to them now while exercising, driving, or eating. As a result, I read about 14 books a year. That’s not an amazing number, but I’m also grading papers at a community college and writing fiction.

Something I have also discovered is that I highly enjoy autobiographies in audiobook form that are performed/read by their authors – such as Carrie Fisher, Eddie Izzard, Craig Ferguson, and David Lynch. I don’t think I would have discovered this without the medium of audiobooks because I primarily read novels in the horror/fantasy genre. But because audiobooks are a different art form, they might help you discover a different way of enjoying reading and, thus, different genres to enjoy.
