Poll: Reading books

I have a difficult time focusing on reading books and long magazine articles.

I guess it’s the meds and depression.

Do you have a hard time reading books?

Same with me @lekkerhondje . I’m reading a book now but I keep having to go backwards and reread or I can’t remember what happened

Yes, but I have improved. I have a difficult time reading books for long periods of time but I can read in short bursts. I can usually read a chapter or 2 at a time.

I can read books,

It just takes longer than it used to.

And my comprehension isn’t as good.

I’m slowly starting to read again. But I’m trying not to read anything “heavy” in subject matter, that requires an enormous amount of concentration.

I figure, if I can read posts here, then I can read at least small amounts of a book. It’s just a matter of getting the motivation. I have desire, not drive.

Not sure, last time I tried to read I was able to read 12 pages non stop. But I find reading boring unless it was for studies.

I don’t have the attention span for it these days.

Can just about cope with the TV, internet and music.

Don’t really read much at all unless it’s on this forum or basic news articles
