I'm not really joking. And I'm in the EXACT same boat.

I go through these phases where I don't read -- or I just pick up novels I've read and either pick through or reread them. Or I go back to short stores I've read over and over.

Truth is, I've never been a big reader. It's not all that easy for me. And my primary interest in literature came from my folks reading aloud to me.

I've heard so many times that if you want to be a really good writer you have to be a copious reader. If that's true, I guess I'm shit out of luck.
