Thanks, Guys! I’m reading, but not like I usually do. Don’t seem to have the focus this year.

Cindy  | 384 comments I agree I hate reading slumps. I am close to a slump, reading too many books with weak plots. My last three books I gave a 2 rating. Good luck! Happy reading

I’ve been thinking that 2018 was not a very successful reading year. But as I look it over, I think I did alright in the end.

Well, I was definitely and unfortunately Challenge challenged. But I did alright on books.

I am looking forward to 2019, though. So Cheers to a new year!

That's a good feeling! Challenges or not, getting your reading groove back is what really matters.
