# I've been struggling to read lately. It's probably part of a wider malaise but I've just not been able to focus on the various books I have piled up.

While sorting out some boxes I stumbled across Shadows Rising which I was given for my birthday but (because of the move) had not yet gotten round to reading. As the next World of Warcraft expansion (Shadowlands) is just over a month away, and this is the lead up to it, I thought I'd better give it a crack but wasn't sure if I'd actually be able to stick with it.

I needn't have worried. After only a day and a half it is done and I feel reinvigorated, ready to dive into something else. I obviously just needed to find the right book to get me going again - something not too heavy.

Next up will be Austin Kleon's Keep Going which I also got for my birthday. I thoroughly enjoyed the first two books in the set so am sure this will be equally as good.
