I used to read books with passion and regularly. Non-fiction and biographies drew me in with mountains of knowledge and history. I couldn't wait to finish one book and grab another.
Over the last few years, that passion slowly shifted to a constant stream of breaking news and must-read articles. I still read about the same volume, but books are taking a back seat.
Last year I tried to reignite my passion for reading. I bought a few new ebooks and got the latest Kindle Oasis with a better backlight for reading at night and higher contrast for reading outdoors. That combo worked great for a few days, but then I went back to the old routine of news and articles.
I know that the culprit is my phone. It's with me, ready to deliver a hit of dopamine with the latest entertainment, news, and must-read articles.
Today I picked up my Kindle only to discover that it was out of battery that lasts a month.
I didn't pick up a book for a month. 😢
Any tips on how to restart my passion for reading books?
