My biggest problem is getting through the beginning of books. The beginnings are probably my least favorite parts, even though I still love them, but I like to get to the action and "meat" of the novel.

I have been retired now for two months. I thought that I would be able to read and read whenever I want and all day if I so desire. Alas, that is not the case. I have discovered that I now have a new title....Official dishwasher. Yep, chores are getting in the way of my reading time. I am managing to get in some good reading but it's so hard to have to put down the great book I am reading to do chores. I am able to read more than I did when I was working which is a big positive....there are just so many wonderful books I want to read.
Anyone who has time to clean is not reading nearly enough :wink:

I completely lose focus of my surroundings when I read. I lose track of time, often can't even hear my name being called. I remember being reprimanded by my teacher in elementary school when I kept on reading after class began. I hadn't even noticed!

I forget easily if I skipped reading for a day. I have to skim to the previous chapter before I can continue where I left.

My biggest problem is getting used to the author's different way of introducing characters and scenery. Sometimes I have read a good portion of the book before I have gathered a mental image. Does anyone else have this issue? Also, some author's use too many chapters and others use too few, does this bother anyone else?
