Report Unmotivated to read! Suggestions? in English Literature Posted June 27, 2014 Recently, or for the past year, I've been finding it really difficult to get into any book or written work deeply enough for me to enjoy it. There are required pieces of texts that were compulsory for me to read, but I never really enjoyed it despite having been an avid reader in the past.Are there any favourite books of yours or such that you would recommend to get me out of this rut?Am I right in my impression that you have been into books in the past but have lost the fire? But whether or not I'm right, I just have some pieces of advice here my friend Aishe. You could start by reading Antoine de Saint Exupery's The Little Prince. It's a thin book with pictures. I'm not treating you as a kid Aishe. The book may seem to be for kids because of the illustration but actually it's not. It is a simple book with a deep meaning. Many people quote this book.After reading this, you could read George Orwells, "Animal Farm". It's a classic book, which, I think was written to indirectly attack the government during the time of the author. Then, you could read Paolo Coelho's "The Alchemist". This is a wonderful novel packed with lessons. This is a step-by-step reading program that could ignite the fire within you for reading books. I hope these help my friend.
