What is Reader's Burnout?

Reader's burnout is a common issue that affects many book lovers. It occurs when you've lost your love of reading and feel overwhelmed by the number of books you want to read. You may feel like you've read everything that interests you, or you may be focusing too much on statistics and goals and neglecting the enjoyment of reading itself. Whatever the cause, reader's burnout can be a frustrating and demotivating experience.

Why Does Reader's Burnout Happen?

Reader's burnout can happen for a variety of reasons. Some of the most common causes include a lack of time, an abundance of choice, or simply feeling overwhelmed by the number of books you want to read or the speed at which you read them.
