July was a bad month for me when it came to reading. I only finished 4 books during the entire month which is my lowest total all year.
Perhaps the more bothersome trend is that I started 4 books that I would just put down. I don’t usually put down a book until it is finished but I lost interest 4 times in the month of July.
Also of note, I didn’t start reading ‘Dark Disciple’ until July 15, 8 days after it was released. Usually, I start a new Star Wars book the day it is released.
About the only good thing I can say about the books I read in July is that they were generally good. ‘Dark Disciple’ was quite enjoyable but the best of the bunch was ‘Strong Boy’.
I don’t know what the reason is for this slump but I can definitely say that for the first time in a long time I was actually more interested in watching TV than I was in reading books.
