But how to start reading again when binge-watching TV is so easy and - let's be honest - fun?
You start slowly, of course. Baby steps. First, with a story that's only twitter-sized in length. Then the next, a mere 75 words. Then a few hundred words, followed by progressively longer tales until you're reading novels without even knowing it.
That's The Binge-Watching Cure, a collection of stories encompassing a range of genres, including mystery, romance, horror, science fiction, literary, crime and more - a little of everything for everybody.
In this book, you'll witness a couple's role-playing night-on-the-town, a First Sergeant coming face to face with the horrors of war, a post-apocalyptic thriller, a young woman with seven days to live out a lifetime of love, a catastrophic train wreck that gives a circus troupe baffling powers, and more.
So kick off your shoes and cure your binge-watching.
