In October I wrote a post on reading binges. You can read that post here. A reading binge is when I start reading a series and can’t stop until I’ve read the entire series. Or, I’ll read one book and as soon as it’s done I have to pick up another book immediately. I might even read several books at once switching between the books. Or one on audio, one on e-book and one in paperback. Yea I’m that addicted to reading!
But lately I have the opposite problem. I seem to be in a reading slump. I pick up a book, read a few pages and put it down. Try another book and the same thing happens. I’ve tried different genres, audio and ebook nothing helps. I used to have reading slumps that lasted months but now that I have a book blog I’m worried! I have enough reviews lined up that I can manage for awhile but my gosh I hope this reading slump doesn’t last like it used to. Especially with all the pressure to read and review books for authors and NetGalley.
When my kids were young I would go months between books and it would take me a month just to read one book. Now I normally average a book a day. I can’t just take a break from reading. So help me out people! How do you handle your reading slumps?
