Yes, this.

I don't mind 600-800 page books in series that I already know and anticipate liking, but otherwise I sort of find myself dreading starting a book that will take me a week at best and - if it turns out to be less exciting - even longer.

Oddly enough I didn't have that issue when I was younger, in my teens or early 20s.
