I went through a phase like that. It lasted years. Now I can't read quickly enough, although I'm currently in an audiobook at bedtime phase. I used to go out with someone who had one book on her bookshelf - an anthology of Burns' poems.

I dont read.

I find it difficult to settle with a book these days, although `i used to be an avid reader.

i dont have the attention span any more, I find it very difficult to concentrate or find the time to devote to really get into a book. Forumlnad kinda suits me btter these days, because I can pick it up and put it down, refresh pages on the way past.

I miss my books though, and really enjoy reading about what others are reading.

Thats it for me anyway - always on call, no time to settle down and indulge.

tbh though, Im somewhat bemused now as to the point of fiction anyway . Seems like such a waste of precious time

What do you do when on the toilet Stinkymouse, apart from the obvious ha ha.
A book is the best thing for the bathroom, especially if you run out of toilet paper. :D

I've now renamed my bathroom 'The Library'.
Reading is almost the only thing I can concentrate on.
I need a good book or I go crazy.
I sometimes put subtitles on tv when watching a film, so it keeps me interested. That's weird eh?
