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.

L O V E this review of Perish by Book Ruminations!

“I have never felt the urge to do this before, but I would literally rate this book a 6 out of 5! How the author managed to make this book so hooking, leaving me sucked in the moment I picked it up, I will never know.”

Just read Perish, the second book in the Jack Harper Trilogy. The story twists in such unpredictable ways, I can't believe the author pulled it off so well! Extremely excited to see what happens to Jack in the finale of the book. @LCBarlowAuthor

Purchased these #beautiful #journals on #Etsy, and they’re even more gorgeous in person. Made by WalkingFishShop in St. Petersburg, Russia. Took forever for them to arrive, but the wait was worth it.
