Occupational Hazard

It's happened.
The dreaded occupational hazard that lurks around every page and at the end of any unsuspecting book.
It can't be predicted. 
It's not the same for everyone.
But every book blogger will experience it at some point in their blogging life.

A Reading Rut.

I can't seem to get past 12 pages of any book I pick up.  The more I read...the fewer pages I finish.
My eyes glaze over at my Nook or a paperback.
Even the books I've been dying to read for months are tossed aside like empty candy wrappers.
Maybe it was the election.  Maybe it was football season.  Maybe it's the impending holidays.
I can't identify the cause...but I do know that this is not the first time I've experienced a rut...nor will it be the last.  But I do know, I will crawl out of the literary hole I am in, and will be refreshed by the time away from pages and words.
In the mean time...I hope your reading flourishes, while I am trying to find my mojo.
Check back in after Thanksgiving.  We are taking a road trip to Disney World...surely 16 hrs trapped in the car with my kids will force me to take refuge in a book.   Because that's not just reading...that's survival.

I hope you have a great trip and you find something soon that strikes your fancy!

What Tricia said! Also: all ruts have to end. Eventually.
