It’s true. Well, almost. I read a collction of quotes by Oscar Wilde while on the train a couple of days ago.
And that’s it.
I follow some people on Youtube that talk about books with passion and love and I haven’t been able to read. I’m so out of the loop, I don’t know what books are popular, I don’t know what people are talking about and I hate it. I don’t think that is what reading is all about but it’s nice to be part of a community!
Last year I read 38 books out of the 60 I had planned. Still, 38 is a good number.
This year I haven’t even started.
The problem is, I’ve been dealing with my anxiety and reading doesn’t help me with it.
I can’t concentrate and I can’t listen to music while I read or I won’t understand a thing.
Reading doesn’t keep my brain busy enough from spiralling and going down the rabbit hole. I wish it did. I really do.
It just doesn’t.
I miss it. I really do.
I’m trying to get back into it but it’s really hard. Amazon is giving me 90 free days on Audible and I hope this summer I’ll be able to listen to a couple of them.
I’m just desperate to get back into them. I want to talk more about them, avoid my anxiety from controlling my brain and letting me enjoy my reading experience.
Do you have any advice on how to get over this horrible slump?
