Bookworm Problems: Reading Slumps


The dreaded reading slump: a bookworm’s worst nightmare. We’ve all been there, starting and stopping a dozen different books because none can hold your attention for more than ten minutes. Sometimes it lasts a day, sometimes it goes on for months, and in rare instances, it can last years.

I’m hoping the reading slump I’m currently in is on the shorter end of the spectrum, but it’s already been two weeks, and I haven’t found a fix yet. I’ve tried switching genres, reading old favorites, looking on blogs for new recommendations,  and moving to a new reading spot. But, nothing has worked, and I am ready to take drastic measures.

So, I think I’m going to take a reading break. Maybe watch Netflix and work on the back-log of reviews I need to write to ease my way back into things. I’m bummed that I won’t reach my reading goal this month, but I’m not going to force myself to read; that takes all the fun out of it.

Question of the week: What’s your go-to method for escaping a reading slump?
