Currently I’m on a roll with reading books but there have been times when the last thing I wanted to do was read. I call these ‘reading slumps’ and it seems like every book blogger and/or avid reader has them on occasion. So how do we get over them and get back blogging?
For me, writing about something else seems to help. If I write about something book-related but don’t actually do reviews, sometimes it rekindles that urge to read again. And a little ranting once in a while is good for you anyway. Sometimes I don’t have a miracle cure for reading slumps; I just snap out of them without warning. Other times it’s re-reading an old favourite that helps me. I don’t really have a surefire way to get out of a reading slump and I think methods for getting out of reading slumps are very individualized. What works for one blogger doesn’t necessarily work for another.
So what I want to know now is this: How do you get out of your reading slumps? Does your method always work or work some of the time?
