For me it's not necessarily reader's block. It's more to the fact that reading for pleasure isn't high on my priority list at the time. There are way more good books out there (new and classics) than I have time to read them. But when you're worried about things such as where you're going to work because you've been laid off or how your kids are going to get medical coverage, you probably have no time or motivation for reading.
For writers it's worse. We feel guilty reading when we could be spending that time writing something worth selling. When we're writing, we regret we don't have time to read.
When I was in college reading textbooks all the time, the last thing I wanted to do was crack open another book simply to read for pleasure.
It just depends on your priorities and how you want to spend your free time.
