What is your longest reading dry spell? Mine was two years!What is your longest reading dry spell? Mine was two years! Theresa #questionnaire
Yikes, I hope mine doesn’t last that long! Had one since the end of April. I read half-a-book in May! Half! This reading slump is madness.
Mine would have been quite a few years when the three kids were little and there was just no quiet time unless they were asleep and then I was asleep too ?
I don t think I’ve had one…
Maybe a few days, at most a week…
Five and a half years… because my mom wouldn’t teach me before kindergarten. =P
About a month or so during my first trimester of pregnancy. Everything made me nauseous including reading, unfortunately.
I didn’t know reading could make someone nauseous. The human body is weird.
Maybe a few days? Even that would be pushing it. I can’t remember the last time I didn’t read before falling asleep.
You mean not reading at all? Two weeks maybe, not including course literature or newspapers.
Couple years. Then over Christmas break i read 10 books in a few weeks and now I’m back in my dry spell.
4 days. I almost died. 🙂
1 year after finishing A Dance With Dragons. I had marathoned the whole series and couldn’t get into anything else.
6 years!? I had kids?
I haven’t read since December 2017. I want to read so bad but I just can’t make myself pick up a book and start.
Same. Add kicks my butt
I can’t go 2 days!
no more than a week, though you’d think with having kids, especially the first I’d have problems…no, usually when I nursed I read or if I could not sleep I’d read…sometimes after waking up and taking care of the baby I’d stay up…weird because with the others (4 in all) I was like drugged LOL…so tired.
There have been days that I haven’t read all day until before bed…
Maybe a week
If I don’t include HP…3 yrs. I read HP once a year no matter what.
I’ve never had one that I can recall.
Before I actually got into reading so about 13 years.
For about 6 months after I had my daughter
A few years in high school. Got back into it at age 20.
A month at most
Never had one.
I never stopped, I have been reading since I was 5 and I always read
About a year. I just couldn’t concentrate or sit still long enough to read.
About a year, it was 3 years ago and I hope it will never happen again!
2 YEARS!!!!.if i go 2 days i panic that im wasting my life..
Almost a year…due to pregnancy and baby and harmonal changes issues :/ wasted a year
About 15 years. I just finished my Master’s and was burnt out on reading. Then my dad and mom got sick and had to care for them. Then broke off my engagement. My dad passed then my mom….
A few months
I think birth to age 4. And once I was dragged on a week-long visit to a house where there WERE NO BOOKS, ex the one I’d brought for the car ride. And one my mom bought for me at K-Mart.
Approx 3 years. ?
