    does this happen to you?

    you pick up a book a few times and can't get into it.

    then you pick it up again, and you are finished with it in two or three days?

    this has been happening to me a lot lately. I don't know what it is.

    Yep, it happened to me just recently. I've had a book for years, never could get past the first page. Finally I'm reading it, and am really involved. (The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying.) A little every evening; I want it to last.

    Yeah, this has happened to me, though not very often since I'm usually game for anything. It's annoying when it does though!

    That happened with me and The Prodigal Summer. I think it was my fifth attempt at picking it up that I suddenly zipped through it and loved it.

    I get that loads! Sometimes the first few chapters are just blah then the story really gets going. I try to make myself read the first 3 chapters before I decide if I want to finish it or not.

    all the time. sometimes, you are just not in the mood or right frame of mind for that particular book or writing style.

    Even if this does happen I make myself read it. I would rather read a bad book then agonize over what the ending would have been. I still obsess about books that I didn't finish years ago and now I can't remember the titles. I have racked up some serious library fines doing this...
