I have always been a voracious reader, but during the pandemic, I started reading on my iPad more and more. Now I’m addicted to the stupid thing. I notice that I reread sentences and paragraphs, because they don’t register on the first read. The most horrible consequence of my addiction is that I can’t seem to focus when I try to read a physical book, and I’m reading less. I miss reading. Breaking my addiction has been very difficult, and sometimes I think I’m a hopeless case.

Maybe try something like 2 minute mysteries, where you have to really focus, but only for a short time (does anyone remember Encyclopedia Brown?) Or magazines about something you are super interested in. It's worth working on it to get your love of reading back.
