The old switcher-oo

After I've finished reading a book I really enjoyed I find it difficult to get into the flow of a new one. It's as if that old book is so burnished into my brain and the words of that author are the only ones I can process and all others be damned.

Book 3 of 2010 started with difficulty this weekend. I kept having to re-read sentences and start paragraphs over again. The sentences seemed to scatter into word pieces in my brain that I could not put back together into a logical flow. Wait now her husband, wait now she's...a widow, wait now she's living alone...where, I duh huh?

Am I the only one?

Sometimes I have a hard time getting into a new book too. What's the book you're reading now? BTW did you know I'm such a dork that I write down all the books I read? Weirdo.
