In library news, I need to get another card somewhere. I went to my preferred library the other day and couldn’t find anything to read! (Except for some Patricia C. Wrede books, anyway.) And since interlibrary loan costs $2 a book, it’s time for me to get a library card in a slightly bigger system. Le sigh.
Meanwhile, I’ve got a few old!library books (besides the Wrede ones) to finish reading before getting some from the new!library, but none of them look very good. Even The Thinking Woman’s Guide to Real Magic, which I’m more than halfway through, hasn’t been calling to me just finish it. Its been over 2 weeks since I started and I haven’t read a page. Boooooo, me.
In fact, I’ve been in a reading slump on for the last week or so. Or maybe not a slump? More like a slow down. Or something. I keep starting books and not finishing them. The only one I did finish this week was Searching for Dragons. And that probably only happened because it was short! It still took me three days to actually finish it, geeze.
On the other hand, I have been reading things other than books. I’ve been reading a lot of articles and blog posts, and I’ve even started to read my way through my backlog of magazines. So I have been reading, just not…er, books.
But I know I’ll get over it eventually. I always have before! I just need to be patient and wait until I feel the urge to read read read again.
How do you work your way through reading slumps? Usually, I just wait them out. What about you?
This post brought to you by Google Voice and my smartphone! It worked out pretty well, don’t you think? I can even do punctuation, which is really neat. Writing a post by dictation is very strange though. It’s high tech and old fashioned and I feel a bit like a time traveler.
