I’ve been noticing this issue I’ve been having more and more lately. I don’t know if you guys share the same problem, but I just had to ask and make a post about this.
You know when you’re reading a book and you’re really into it? The moment where you finally get to the good part and have to -gasp- put it down to do something else? The “something else” can be things like chores (due to annoying parents), attend class (can’t we cut?), or even go to the bathroom (ahh, life)?
And then when you’re finally done with whatever you had to do and you pick up the book again, you don’t get that same excited, oh my god I love this part feeling you just had before you put the book down. Some of that excitement had died down and you just continue reading the book, hoping to feel that earlier feeling again…until you’re done with the book and realized that nope, it just doesn’t feel the same; you just can’t get that earlier feeling back again. You shouldn’t have put the book down – the rest of the book just doesn’t compare to the feeling you once had.
Sometimes this problem can affect how you rate a book, when really, it’s not the book’s fault, it’s just timing problems.
More and more, I’ve been having this problem lately and well, there’s sadly nothing I can really do about it. I don’t know if I’m the only one alone with this issue. Am I?
This issue is why I try to read an entire book in one setting, but 85% of the time, I just can’t because of life. Either the train reached my stop or I have to go to work or my class just started. It’s either cut school or don’t read at all until I can finish the book all at once and both solutions are impossible for me to do.
Do you also face this same problem like I do or do you just think I’m plain weird? (Don’t be afraid to tell me I’m weird, I already know I am. :P) Do you have a solution to this problem?
