Could it possibly be the book that you are reading? Are you reading for pleasure or school?

Textbooks are the worst. I tried to read this book on physiology and it just wouldn’t sink in no matter how many times I poured over it.

I had the same problem with philosophy of religion; I finally found a book Philosophy of Religion for Dummy’s. It was clear and concise and finally I was able to understand what the writer of my textbook failed to convey.

When I was growing up, I hated reading and I felt stupid. It finally dawned on me years later that I wasn’t stupid. The writers that wrote the books that I was forced to read in school were horrible writers and boring at that.
