When it comes to books, I'm a binger and a purger.
I go through phases where I can't read enough - devouring books in 2 or 3 days and then looking for my next fix like a desperate junkie. I'll easily tear through 8-15 books when I'm in binge mode.
And then for no apparent reason I just... poop out.
I'll start to read something, and then stop. I'll find myself with free time, but I wrinkle my nose at the thought of sitting down with a book.
Maybe it's burnout? I don't know. But I'm in one of those droughts right now.
I've been looking at all the books on my bookshelf and itching to clear some out, as I usually do when I'm in a reading dry spell. I'm not the kind who'll re-read a book once I've finished it (unless I really, REALLY love it), and plus, I got a Kindle for Christmas. So if I do feel the need to revisit something, I have the option to upload it - without taking up any already limited space in my house.
Although, truthfully? I'm still a little attached to paper books. So I think subconsciously, purge mode is actually preparation for the next binge.
Do any of you experience book bulimia? Any suggestions for great books that might jump start my next reading binge?
