READING A BOOK

800px_COLOURBOX1961560

 I have a number of books.  Most of the books I have are on History, Photography, Instructional, and The Civil War.  But, there is a big problem that I seem to have.  That is I just can’t seem to sit down and read what I have!  I’ve had this problem for a long, long time.

Just why I have this, I have trouble explaining.  I can remember back in HS, when I was told to read a number of chapters in the book, but never really did.  I should have.  Would probably have gotten better grades.  Why do I still have the same problem?

I will go buy or order a book that has my interest.  I want to read about it and what the Author is trying to tell the reader.  I want to know what is being told, but I just don’t do it!  I have just received books I ordered named “The End of Detroit, The Story about the Purple Gang in Chicago, and The Story about Scarface and the Untouchables”  They have been sitting around for awhile now.  I’ve picked them up, read a few paragraphs, then put it down.

I’m finding that if the book does not hold my interest from the very start I’ll get bored with it!  Then later on, I’ll try again, but the same thing happens.  I’m told that reading a good book is very good for your brain and well being.  Is it?  Don’t know that.  Maybe what I should do is just force myself to start reading and hold yourself to it.  Read slowly and understand what the Author is telling you.  Maybe I just don’t have the patience to keep reading?  Not sure.

I’m going to keep trying.  With constant doing I just may get into more reading about what I want.  Maybe some of you out there have the same problem?  Leave me a comment, if you want.

 

Thanks for stopping by.
