Why I haven’t been reading as much as I’d like…

Hello, book lovers! 💕

So the last month or so, I have become addicted to playing on my Nintendo Switch. The only way I’ve been getting any reading done is if I listen to a book on audio while I play. Which is fine, but now I’ve been struggling to get through physical books because all I want to do is play video games.

I’m not even sure where I’m going with this post, and I know this isn’t technically book-related, but these are my recent addictions on my Nintendo Switch. And I know this isn’t going to be the end of the list by any means because I’m constantly finding new games I want to play.

Dragon Quest Builders 2 is actually the main culprit for my lack of reading. I started playing the demo of this game a couple weeks ago, and immediately had to buy the full version. I was that addicted. I spent countless nights playing this until 1 or 2 in the morning. I spent so many hours during the day playing it. And I’m not even done with the main story mode.

I do plan on finishing it; there’s no doubt in my mind. Even if this is how I’m going to look from here on out:

And even though I’m not even done with DQB2, I wanted to finish my play through of Pokémon Ultra Sun that I started last year. I don’t know what made me want to pick this up randomly this past weekend, but now that I’m playing it, I can’t stop. And honestly that’s don’t know why I put it down in the first place. I finished Pokémon Sword on my Switch in about a month, so I should have been able to finish this one in the same amount of time. But for some reason I haven’t. But now I want to. All the more reason I probably won’t get that much reading done in March.

There was also a brief time before I played either of these games where I was addicted to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on my Switch because I was determined to unlock all of the fighters. And there were like 75 of them. So that took me a while too.

So overall, I’m trying to balance the video games I want to play with the books I want to get read. And so far, it’s been a struggle. I have trouble devoting too much time to one, then no time at all to the other.

Do any of you guys have this issue, or is it just me? I’d love to talk about it in the comments below!
