I have been having a very difficult time lately with my reading. I just can not engage. I mean, not at all! I lose interest in what I’m currently reading and then I’m not certain if the book sucked or it’s my mood at the time I read it. Ugh. It’s very frustrating. I have a huge TBR list and it feels like work when I read. I’ve tried every genre lately and nothing is working. I usually hit a historical romance for a palette cleansing but that isn’t cutting it this time.
I have even stopped watching four of my current TV series so I can have more time to read. Then, what do I do? That’s right, I live on Candy Crush. Don’t even say it, I’m not giving up my Candy Crush! I totally immersed in my book funk and I hate it! It wouldn’t be so bad but this funk is coming in on the heels of Kate and Anne’s recent book funks.
Anyone out there have a suggestion to bust me out of this funk? Anyone?

Hi. My name is Anne and I'm in a book funk. My book funk has been going on for about 2 months. (Yikes! I only just realized it's been 2 months!) I've got nothing for you, Kay. If only the drama in my life would stop, then I think I could get back into reading. If I try to read right now, I'm very cynical and overly critical. Reading is normally my escape, so I'm not sure why it isn't working. I know I miss that escape, though! ~Anne
I thought I'd just come across a stretch of really bad books lately, but now I'm wondering if it's me and not the books. Grrr. Either way, I've not been the productive reader that I normally am. I'm wondering if I going to meet my goal of reading 200 books this year. Did anyone else set reading goals this year? How close are you getting?
I set a goal of 150 books and I've passed so far. Maybe I'll try for two hundred now?
I had to look up my goal. Apparently I wanted to make it easy on myself and I set it for 100. I'm at 120 now, and I totally get why I set the goal for 100- I feel like I've accomplished so much! I'm just basking in my success here! ~Anne
