In a General Slump

This year hasn’t been great for reading for me. No surprises here, since this year hasn’t been great for pretty much anything. Despite having enough time on my hands in Summer while I was working from home, I couldn’t bring myself to finish whatever I was reading. I was not in a reading slump exactly – it was more of a general slump (apathy in other words)!

Last month was a little better though for I was able to finish two marvelous books. Now that the bookworm in me has slowly crept out of its den, I hope it will be making the ambitious November proud. Out of the eight unfinished books that I have on my nightstand (oh, my), fingers crossed, I have planned to read the following three books (small steps, if you will) to the end:

  1. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
  2. Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World by Haruki Murakami
  3. The Plague by Albert Camus.

Happy reading to everyone out there! 🙂

I am drowning in a sea

Of unfinished books, calm and unafraid,

Don’t throw me a raft, I do not want to be saved!

  1. Sometimes the funk happens. I too get these funks for no reason at all and, like you, despite having all the free time in the world, I can’t bring myself to do the things I’m supposed to do. The good thing is I still force myself to though. Even though it feels like I’m just going through the motions. Here’s to wishing that you momentum returns soon!
