Blog: Holidays and Reading

So, I’m currently on holiday. We’re in the South of England, the weather is glorious and I have a pile of books at my side. I have no motivation to read. Now, this is making me miserable, because I want to read but I just cannot find the motivation to read for more than 10 minutes. I have some amazing books sat there but my current reads seems to be hanging over me and I’m wondering if it may be worth putting it down for a couple of days and starting another book to just get that mojo back!

I had great aspirations of how I was going to read on holiday; I was going to combine reading and an audiobook on the journey (I read 10 pages, listened to none of my audiobook), I was going to read loads and I just haven’t really done much of anything. Does anyone else have this trouble when they get to somewhere new? They lose the motivation they had to read as much as they did?

Anyway, it’s beautiful where we are, we’re not at all far from Chesil Beach (we have a beautiful view of it!) I just feel a little glum that my motivation has disappeared! Primarily because after 15 years of being unable to, I am able to go swimming so I’m taking a bit of time out to do that – I didn’t realise how much I was going to love it!

So, where I hoped to update with a few review this week, I’m not sure that’s going to happen. Maybe once or twice if I’m lucky.

Anyway, just a small update. I’m going to go back to my room and cuddle up with Virginia Woolf’s To the Lighthouse!

Caio for now!

  1. I know that feeling. I’ve been reading the same book (which isn’t even that long) for over a week. I’ve had hospital appointments and time off work and instructions to take things easy which should be perfect for reading but I’ve just been lacking the motivation.

    Enjoy your holiday, the books will be there when you get back. 😉
