Tom refers me to an article on reader's block:

The Guardian ... published an article on "reader's block", that tendency to buy books and never read them or to start them and not finish them. Apparently spending on books in Britain (£4.4bn per year) is rising faster than any other country in Europe while the number of hours spent reading books is declining.
