In case you can’t tell from my silence last week, I’m still on a reading slump. Yes, despite the fact that I read all those stuff above, I’m on a reading slump. Maybe a book slump – as in, the physical object. Seven of the comics and three of the fiction I read were in digital format, and four of the novels were in audio.

I think I am finally feeling this thing where my work is making me feel like I don’t want to pick up a book. I still like being surrounded by them, though, fortunately.

Anyway, I’m still taking things one book at a time, and as Miles would say, FORWARD MOMENTUM.

  1. If you are on a book slump, I think I’m on a comic book slump. The last one I bought and read was WicDiv vol 7 and I don’t even know what happens to Kamala after vol 6. And yes, this is partly caused by work. Work sucks a lot now but it makes me want to read more books (sf/f). It’s a good thing you still read ebooks because it means I always know what to read next (I was on the verge to buy Tess on the Road paperback at work just now because the one book I bought–yes, the Nebula nominee–was such a mind-numbing and I gave up on it. I like the idea, the concept but it’s just too painfully slow for me so maybe next time). I’m still reading Hexwood and taking my time and loving it! And yes, audiobook is great. I figure out if I just pay attention at the view outside the train window when commuting, I won’t be having difficulties in focusing on the book. I don’t know whether to wish you’ll be out of your (physical) book slump or not but then, as long as you enjoy listening to audiobook and reading digital copy, then just continue doing what you do. I like the quote from Miles! I don’t even remember it 😅

    1. I haven’t read WicDiv 5-7! 😮

      The only reason I’m keeping up with Ms. Marvel is because I get the singles – I haven’t bought the last two compilations. Comics are easier for me to read right now because of Marvel Unlimited – it’s like a comic version of Netflix, I just binge while eating or walking.

      Sorry that you’re not enjoying Amberlough 😦

      I really want to get the next Miles audiobook now but I need to save my credits, and I’m supposed to be alternating with October Daye, and also finish the audiobooks I got through Audible Romance Package (I got mostly YA/SFF romance) before getting something new.
