Did you ever read a book that was so good, so absorbing, so well written, that you couldn’t get connected with the next book? After finishing New York 2140 by Kim Stanley Robinson, I breezed through the first chapters of four different books before I found one that held my interest. Maybe part of the problem was New York 2140 was so long and dense with ideas that it took many days to read, and I found myself still caught up in the story after finishing the book. It even invaded my dreams.
The good part of this phenomenon—I wasn’t staying awake reading until 1 or 2 am while I couldn’t find a book to hold my attention.
