Thought of the Day #93: Intolerably Stupid


Of the many shareable quotes from Jane Austen’s brilliant books, I think it’s this one from one of her lesser-known books, Northanger Abbey, that I’m feeling most in line with right now as I struggle to get stuck into any book I try. I feel like a total idiot for not enjoying books right now as I know how good books are normally, whatever mood I’m in. And it’s not even as if it’s one particular genre I’m struggling with, it’s everything! From old favourites to new reads, to fantasy books or non-fiction. I just seem to be in a reading slump, no matter what I try. I don’t like it guys – make it stop. I don’t want Jane Austen to think I’m intolerably stupid from her grave, yes I’m sure this could happen!
