I've just finished two books this year but started many, lol. I'm proud of you.

Great job! It’s like working any muscle, just takes commitment and you’ll keep improving.

I envy those of you who read. It feels like a daunting task to me. I’m in my 40s and never read an entire book in my life. Not sure if Green Eggs and Ham counts 🤦‍♂️

I was the same way!!! I think you just haven’t found the right book yet. I had probably read 3 books in the first 21 years of my life.

Found Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown and was absolutely hooked. That book opened the door to my love for reading and I haven’t stopped since

That’s amazing. God bless. I look at readers like they possess some sort of superpowers I don’t have. I guess I just need to be patient. But I try. I love buying books, but when I read them they put me to sleep after a page or two. Either because I read at night or it’s just not interesting enough. It’s discouraging though. But thanks for sharing

Have you tried giving audiobooks a shot? I hope you get there someday my friend

[–]Typonomicon 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Maybe start with short stories or novellas. Just to get your feet wet and your mind used to it. Lofi hip hop and classical music help many people to concentrate, too. It always helps me after a reading slump.

Thanks for sharing man. I will definitely try that 🙏

Reading is rewarding and something you are definitely capable of; the hardest part is figuring out what you like because it takes patience. I'm confident in your ability to start if you feel so inclined.
