Today’s Prompt: Reader’s Block

What’s the longest you’ve ever gone without reading a book (since learning how to read, of course)? Which book was it that helped break the dry spell?    https://wordpress.com/read/post/id/489937/91046/ or    http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/readers-block/

The longest I’ve gone without reading was about 5 years.  I love to read, but I was going through some major life transitions at the time; moving to a new state and trying to land a decent paying job, getting married, moving again.  None of it was easy.  I was also trying to discover who I was, but instead lost myself for a long time.  I was trying to survive and not doing that very well either. Before that, I had always been an avid reader. For some unexplainable reason, I literally couldn’t focus. I can’t really say which book re-ignited my passion for reading.  I’m grateful that whatever happened straightened out.

Then it happened again!  Another BIG transition occurred; Divorce.  I quit reading for about two years.  I couldn’t focus.  Thankfully, I met an awesome man who turned me on to  Megan Lindholm AKA Robin Hobb’s book series.  I couldn’t put them down!

Hopefully, nothing will interfere with my passion for reading again.
