There has been lots of opportunity to read most of last year, and that continues to be the case early this year. And though I haven't read excessively more than I usually do, and I try and vary the subjects and genres that I read, and do safe activities like physical exercise, I've hit a bad moment of bookworm burn out. I was happily reading through one of my Star Trek books, a perfectly fine book at the time. It was cozy reading it between the aftermath of Christmas and the coming of the new year. It was cozy reading and cozy atmosphere, but I was slowing down before the world became a little scary in early January. My Star Trek book wasn't working as an escape, and it remained slow going for a fair chunk of January. I've loved reading for the longest time, but I feel drained. I've been reading small chunks of non-committal maternal, stuff I can finish in half an hour or less. I'm avoiding even some longer short stories in anthologies I have. I've taken several days off as dedicated non-reading days. I feel daunted by a modest 260-page Star Trek novel, to say nothing of other, longer books. Has anyone else had a bad bookworm burn out? How did you cope, and how long did it take for you to get back in the groove?
