How do you handle a book you want to read but fail to enjoy?
I started *To The Lighthouse* by Virginia Woolf last week and had to give up less than 80 pages into the book. My reading speed was half of what it tends to be, I got distracted easily and had to back-track often. In addition I didn't remember much of what I had read afterwards. This was a very new experience for me. At the same time I really feel like it is a good and interesting story/book. It's just that there is something with it that doesn't work for me.
How many books did you read until you found one where you have read over 50 pages in a row?
For me it is The Invisible by H.G Wells. It is my seventh or eighth book since I started reading again 3 years ago. The first day I got the book I have read 50 pages. I have finished the book now after 5 or 6 days.
It was so enjoyable to read the story of the invisible man. It was also cool to read a book from the time when sci-fi first formed.
Does anyone know how to download library ebooks to a Kindle?
I have a 12 hour flight coming up (6 each way) I have a kindle that was given to me and would like to get into reading.
In the past I would read some horror and suspense books. I loved Misery the first time I read it, after that I got into some more Stephen King books over the years. (Pet sematary, shining, It)
Looking for some more books similar I might not have heard of or highly recommended.
Hope this is the right place to ask, I don’t come to r/books often!
How do you make reading not feel like a chore and something to enjoy?
Does anyone know when Book Depository will be moving on from their current Bookmark theme?
I don't read very much. What are some of your favorite short stories (~100 pages)? I really enjoyed the Importance of Being Earnest and if anyone has similarly captivating suggestions I would really love to hear them.
Drive by question. I’m looking for a book about video game history. Which book is better: Replay or Ultimate Video Game History?
Is Anathem worth it? I've got about 700 pages in when [spoilers](#s Erasmas and all the others evacuate the Concent) but for the life of me I cannot pick it up to finish it. Is the ending worth everything? I've read Seveneves and Reamde already and both felt...lacking in their end. I feel like Stephenson doesn't want to end his novels but does it anyways. The endings always feel so disappointing.
