Monday Musings…Got Reader-itis?

Reader-itis is when the thought of picking up another novel tires you and yes, Reader-itis is made up. I love to read, but lately every book I have picked up has made me tired just looking at it. Now, if I pick up a book by a favorite author or something that can just grip me from the first page I’m okay. It becomes a problem with these books that start slow or are just okay. I have found myself tossing books aside for being boring, for having annoying protagonists, for feeling like I’ve read this book already, etc. And, yet, I’m not quite ready for the cure of taking a break from reading (though I have slowed things down a bit).

I’ve tried a cure called reading what I don’t usually read and let me tell you, there’s a reason I don’t read certain books. I was hesitant to pick up a book for days after that wierd novel. In the future, I think I’ll just stick with what I know.

Anyone ever felt this way? Anyone know of a good cure?
