Books

Reading is something I used to love doing. Reading made me love to write and in fact, made me a better writer. Reading for the sake of enjoyment is something I have completely stopped doing. I used to make time to sit down and enjoy a good book. I couldn't wait to get home and read whatever book I was in the middle of. Picking up a book is something I never do anymore. I'm not sure if it's because I am busier now then I have ever been. Or it is the amount of writing I do professionally that has made reading sound less desirable. Whatever it is, it's to blame for my "book funk." I could also attribute my lack of interest to having not read an absolutely amazing book in a long time. I've read some pretty good books, but nothing that left me wanting more. There is nothing better than finishing a book that leaves you thinking about it for days. Maybe I need to try Miss Marina Star's approach and set an annual goal for myself. Forcing myself back into the habit I used to love so much. Suggestions?
