Patricia C. Wrede talks about how to get past the "OMG I need a good battle" feeling. One of her suggestions is something that I've used for years, too. If the subject matter is incomprehensible, then start with a book written for younger readers and work your way up.

I've gotten grief for this, mentioning it on research panels. Perhaps I should have stressed the "No, you don't REMAIN at the middle school level, you just start there!" aspect?

Recommended.
