So I also did some rereading of books this month, and they’re not on this list. I definitely expected to read more, but what are you gonna do. Apparently I just read much more slowly now. And have other things going on in life. When I don’t read because I’m writing, I don’t consider that a fail, and I plan to do a bit more of that, because reading fiction while trying to write it is awful and ill-advised. Also, I’m just starting to hate reading. I really need it not to be assigned or required anymore. And I need to not have to do it on a schedule. I should probably stop writing these posts, but I don’t want to, because they remind me that I should write more in-depth posts on some of the books that I read.

I just really need to enjoy reading again. I want that so bad.
