I feel like I am in a bit of an intellectual funk these days. I just can’t seem to get excited about all of the books I have lined up to read. I have started half a dozen in the last week or so and can’t seem to get any momentum no matter what I pick up. History, politics, philosophy, novels, short stories, nothing seems to generate interest or zip. I surf the net aimlessly and yet find nothing particularly deep or interesting to say. I continue to write about the election and Ohio but can’t seem to post anything here. I think the combination of football season and the election has just been to big a distraction.
Question for the audience: what do you do when you are burned out on books? Is there a particular genre or type of book (or even a specific book) you turn to when this happens? Or do you just do something else for a while assuming that the reading thing will come back after some distractions? Do you even find yourself burnt out on books? Is it just me?
