1.Nadia says that I shouldn’t blog about the books I’ve read, or not read, as the case maybe.
My DNF rate last month is over 20%, probably closer to 30% – out of 15-20 books read. So basically, I was really mean in January.Or maybe the books I thought would be good to read were really really bad.
The problem is probably not the books.The problem is probably me.
I need to stop looking at novels like they are vitamins.Good for me, take 1 a day.
3.I just have very little patience for fiction lately.
I read because I crave mental stimulation. The best to drive me insane is probably to lock me up in a room with nothing to do.But most novels don’t seem to do that any more. Short stories are like popcorn, light, fluffy and not substantial at all.
I want that substance. Not in terms of size or heft, but something for the various bits and pieces of my brain to chew on.4.
I signed up to be a guest reviewer for Book Chick City anyway. Why not, right?Plus, I like to talk about books. That’s why I used to review books online and read reviewer blogs and stuff like that.
Maybe if I talked more about what I was reading, it would kick-start me out of this slump. Though, at this point, it feels like it’d require nuclear fission to do that.
