Not Excited in Reading (Certain) Books

I am reading a review of a book a few minutes ago. At the end, I came to a conclusion that it was a good book but with too many words. The reviewer was not too excited describing the book. In another place, I found a more raving review of the book. It's a best seller book in Indonesia. (I am not going to give the title. :) )

I've got the book but for some reasons I have not started reading the book. Don't ask me why.

There's also another book (different author) that is a best seller. It even became a movie. That, also, did not excite me. I've read a few pages then gave up. Many people said that the story is good. I just couldn't read it.

What's wrong with me?

I have some possible answers. One, I have to wear glasses when reading now. I hate it. I love reading lying down. And, those glasses are just in the way of reading. This is why I read less books these days. The stack (of books to be read) is getting higher and higher.

Next possible answer. I don't want to read mainstream. I want to be different. So, I don't read those books for the sake of being different? What a pitty, right? Well, it doesn't have to make sense.

Last. Maybe, my taste is just different. That's it. (ha ha ha ... trying to find justification.)
