Reading Slump ~ Blame the tablet:

Well, I have to say I’ve been in a reading slump for about a month but I’m finally getting out of it.   My tablet stopped charging and I lost all my books back then.  Actually, I didn’t lose them all as they were still out there, I just couldn’t get to them since my tablet died.  I like to use overdrive and get books through the public library for FREE.  I did install the app on my laptop but reading books on a big laptop vs. a handheld tablet was not my cup of tea.   If you’ve never used OVERDRIVE, it’s a great way to read books.  I still love picking up an REAL book to read and actually turn the pages once in a while though. 

In the meantime, I picked up a book I tried to read once before but yet again couldn’t quite get into it (Three Cups of Tea).  I’ll try this one again, later.   Why I can’t get into this book.   I really can’t stand it when one of these scenarios happens.  Someone says they don’t care for a book and then it ruins it for you or you hear a lot of hype about a book and your expectations are so high it ruins the book for you in this instance as well.  This doesn’t always happen but it doesn’t help either!
