I have come across the problem since Childhood. It is not because I am not interested in reading, when I pick up a book I end up putting it down and not finishing it because it does not interest me. I have done this with countless books where I do not remember who the authors. I can only remember by the cover and/or reading it. Only books I was successfully able to read were: "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" Phillip K Dick "Catcher in the Rye" J.D Salinger "God Bless you Mr. Rosewater" Kurt Vonnegut "The illustrated man" Ray Bradbury "The Perks of being a wallflower" Stephen Chbosky Every one of Jeorge Luis Borges writings my favorite "Invension of Morel" Adolfo Bioy Casares "1984" George Orwel "The time machine" H.G Wells Register to remove this ad I know it was crazy when I tried to explain to my elementary, middle school and high school professors that 98% of the books we had to read did not interest me. I was even put into a remedial class because they believed it was because I could not read. I just think it is because I am not interested in reading but when I want to read I have nothing available to me. Any suggestions? The things I am interested in are science fiction, conspiracy books involving societies under a control over a hierarchy, fantasy novels that are more modern (please no Harry Potter or twilight). I also like books based upon personal experiences.
