I used to love reading

It had always been my favorite thing to do.

Since getting serious about writing, though, that has changed.  I'm finding it difficult to remove my editor's hat.  I notice everything I would have changed during revision.  Finding stories that I read all the way to the end has become a challenge.  I give up on most books nowadays, usually before getting to the 10% mark on the Kindle.

Or maybe the stuff I'm reading isn't all that good.  Maybe Amazon's rating system isn't infallible.  Actually, I know it isn't, but still--you'd think something with an average rating of four stars or better would have a fair chance of hooking me.

I used to love reading.  Now?  Not so much.
