This Is Me, Unfortunately #1LinerWeds

Seriously, it’s gotten to where I don’t have the patience to read anymore. I know, it’s an unforgivable sin for someone who writes as much as I do not to read, but there you go.

I should qualify that: I read nonfiction (particularly technical books) and y’all’s blog posts. Fiction, though, is something I just don’t have a feel for anymore.

  1. I’m still reading and wish I could give myself the gift of just taking a day to read all day. As it is, I read at night before bed so it takes me a while to finish a book because I usually fall asleep after one chapter.


  2. It’s been a while since I read any fiction–maybe two years ago. I haven’t really been reading any books period over the past few months. Watching TV has become an easier recreational informational outlet for me.

    I do want to start reading again.

    Tossing It Out


    1. I’ve considered audiobooks, but I don’t think I have the patience to sit and listen to them for very long. I buy technical books, but they’re not the kind you read cover to cover. I use them more as reference material.


  3. For me it’s a strange feeling to not be able to concentrate long enough to get interested in reading – and that goes for any new books, or old favorites. Blogs though are just short enough and varied enough during these unsettled days to be my reading material for now.
    Also, getting my A/Z posts going – that’s coming along pretty well. 🙂


    1. I know the feeling about A to Z posts. I’m about a quarter of the way through with my own and have to get started on the ones for the challenge blog.

      I read a lot when I was recovering from the stroke and in rehab, and I think I just tired of it. Usually Mary and I read the Janet Evanovich books when they come out, but with this last one, I read about a third and put it down, saying “I’ll read this later” and never got back to it. I read a lot of blogs, and I figure that’s the kind of reading I prefer.


  4. During my career as an insurance underwriter, I read insurance lingo for years. I don’t read anymore except for blogs. With that said, long posts don’t hold my interest even if they are well-written.


    1. There are, and I have the attention span of a magpie…. I’ve considered audiobooks, then I ask myself if I really want to spend that amount of time listening to something. I can barely get through podcasts…


    1. I remember when that came out, it was my Dad’s favorite commercial, especially the last verse, when they’re all singing different things at the same time. He sang in barbershop quartets (he was a bass, not just a baritone) and he used to do that a lot…
