(I wrote this about two months ago when Ethan was still breastfeeding a lot. He’s so efficient at breastfeeding now that I don’t have much time to read right now. :()
I’ve finally got some reading time again, since I sit with Ethan as he breastfeeds throughout the day. I’ve found, though, that there’s one thing that I don’t like about reading.
I don’t like starting a new book.
I KNOW! Weird, right? Instead of being excited about the possibilities, I feel apprehensive that I won’t like it. Most books need some time to set the stage, so to speak. And I get it! I do! But the whole setting the stage part is generally something that I have to slog through as I get into a groove with the story and the author’s voice.
My favorite part is being in the middle of a book I love, and I hate finishing a book, because I know I’ll soon be starting another book. I’m saying goodbye to an old friend, and now I have to make a new friend.
Is there anything you don’t like about reading?
