I would love to read a book, and not just one chapter of it, then completely forget about the book:/

Why dont you like reading?  What genres have you tried?  What kinds of things are you interested in?  I knew someone who would read medical texts for fun but hated fiction writing.

I don't know that is just the thing, is I try so many different books and I always end up forgetting about them

I agree.
I just cant get lost in the text my mind starts wondering and I can read the entire chapter and have NO idea what I just read.
I do however read kid books :) to support my young reader!

 Like all at one time?  try one at a time and set aside a certain time each day to read.  if it doesnt capture you within the first 50 pages or so, then move on to the next one.

I have tried reading everything, maybe I will try again with the most popular books around today. Hubbu bought all the hunger games books so I will try those:)

I promise there is a book out there you will love!! You just have to keep looking. Why not spend the day in a Library until you find a good one?
