Readers Block

We have all heard of writers block, but you don't hear much about readers block. This is when you just find it hard to get motivated to read. I am battling my way through Proust and some days it is all too much.

So what is the cure?

I have found the best cure to be reading a light book such as a thriller or mystery, one that doesn't need a lot of concentration. It does work and after a gory thriller I am now back reading Proust and some of my more serious reading.

May the force be with you...

Meaningless confusion
A tumble of chaotic
Who is living
In my mind?

Awake but not alert
Struggling to find

Trying to raise above
The surface of my
To be myself
