My head is hung slow.. I've finally gotten a copy of Diana Gabaldon's last book "An echo in the bone." I've started reading it and find that I just really am not interested in finishing it. It's been SO long since "Breath of snow and ashes" that I just have lost my interest. I feel bad because this is my favorite series. I've found so many other good books to read that I just can't make myself sit down and face 820 pages.
Have any of you ever ran into this problem? Series are enjoyable but when there's such a gap between installments does the author run the risk of loosing readers?

I've definitely had that happen to me. Sometimes I'm just not in the mood. But... it might be three days, three months or three years before I dive into the series again and WOW, I'm ready for it and enjoy the books. I've too have had Echo in the Bone sitting on my TBR pile in my Nook for a few months now and haven't started it. But I know it will be there when I'm ready.

I am glad I am not the only one! I feel horrible when I don't finish a book. NOt sure why. Usually I just can't get into the book, its too long or boring and I just stop. I feel like it's a crime or something!
But hey, maybe you will want to read it later in life. Or you can donate to your library or a bookstore too, so at least there is a plus to it.
