MizB over at Should Be Reading asks us:
***So, what do YOU do when you find yourself in a reading slump? How do you get out of it? Do you keep trying different books until you find one that draws you in? Do you just give in to the slump until it passes, and do something other than reading for a time? Do you ask for help? And, if you ask for help, what great (or, not so great) advice have you been given on how to get out of the slump?
I really hate being in a reading slump-it depresses me. I like having a book to go to when everything else is driving me nuts. I do however know the feeling. I’ve been lucky lately that I’ve read some really good books because I find, that most often, a reading slump occurs after I’ve read a really good book and then pick one up that just doesn’t cut it.
Usually I will try picking up something else-and I try to pick something totally different from what I was reading. I find this the best way to get out of the slump. Sometimes I will pick up my knitting or cross stitching for a while to do something different. All the while I’ll have a book on the go, I just won’t be reading as much as normal. In a slump I also find myself having a couple of books on the go and I’ll go back and forth between them where normally if I have a good book that I’m enjoying, I read it till I’m done.
So, what about all of you. What do you do when you hit a reading slump? Let’s see what good ideas are out there for getting out of a slump.
