Why are some books harder to read than others? You know the sort, it sounds like it'd be right up your street, it has loads of great reviews about how good it is, yet some how you just can't get in to it. I have a few books at home that I've never managed to read, I've tried on a few occasions to get through them but it just felt like such a chore.
I generally find that if my mind wanders quite a bit when reading, I'm either not that interested in the book or I'm not in the mood for reading. I love to get stuck into a good book but do find I have to be in a reading mood. I can get through a few books relatively quickly when the mood strikes though.
