The beginning of the October started off fine, as I finished a few books I started in September. Then came the dreaded audiobook. Maybe it was a coincidence, but after finally finishing Sidney Poitier’s The Measure of a Man, I lost all of my reading momentum. I found I was in the midst of a serious slump. I couldn’t concentrate on reading anything remotely taxing. I had a hard time even concentrating on great, insightful posts by my favorite bloggers.
So what did I do? I started another audiobook. I fell in love with it after ten minutes, and I am comfortable declaring to the world that THE SLUMP IS OVER!!! YAY!!!
I’m almost done with the audiobook, and I read two novellas from Melville House’s Contemporary Art of the Novella series (Customer Service and The North of God). Both were four star reads.
