I just cannot seem to get into the "reading" thing. I have tried buying books that seemed interesting enough or recommended by someone. And sometimes, I even crack it open and try to begin reading. But I don't get far before I am bored and ready to do something else. Then the book(s) is neglected and I walk past it watching it collect dust. It isn't that I didn't find the book appealing. But an overwhelming since of dread and reluctancy just to perform the act. Crazy right?? Can you help?
I hate reading.
Dear I hate reading,
No need to be upset or worried. Everything isn't for everybody! And I do not believe that you don't like reading in particular, you just do not enjoy sitting down (designated time) and reading a book! You read constantly all day long—text messages, emails, advertisements, etc. I believe it may be a connection with a past reading experience. Maybe an earlier reading/book experience has made a certain impact on your reading habits.... just a thought. However, I have good news for you!! Many authors have converted their books into.....wait for it...wait for it.... audio books!!! *crowd cheers here* So, now you can just listen to them while driving to work or on a road trip like you do the radio!! Quick fix! And if there isn't an audio version available, may I also suggest e-books or an e-reader. Just download it straight to your pc or reader and maybe you can trick yourself into not thinking its a book!! (LOL!) I hope this helps!!
If you have your own personal book reading stories, please share them with us!! We would love to hear about them!!
