It would be a terrible overstatement to claim that I no longer enjoy reading literature; however, my recent and not so recent experiences with it show general tendency to go that way. To put it simple - the more time passes, the more older I get, the less I enjoy literature, and the greater seem to be my unwritten 'standards' to be able to. Hardly anything is curious enough for me, 'good' enough for me, or makes me want to read it at all.
The prevalent feeling whilst reading in the past, say, six months, was the feeling of genuine boredom, even if it came to the books I used to read and love in the past. It does not affect solely contemporary schund which I come across once in a while and generally do not even consume, but literature as such, in general. There are very few things left to be able to spark my interest and maintain it till the end of the book. At first I thought it was just a temporary phase, but then I figured it lasted a bit too long to be able to be classified as such.
Everything else in my life is perfect, so this cannot be due to distraction by some other problems or something of the kind. The problem is, however, that I intend to study literature in university to which I am off in September, and that I cannot picture myself studying literature in this state. Am I just "fed up" and need a break, or am I truly losing a sensibility for literature? Did anyone else on here go through something like that?
