TGIF is a meme hosted weekly at GReads! that allows bloggers to answer a book-related question and to recap their reading week!
Reading Blues: We all get them from time to time. What helps you overcome those reading slumps when nothing seems to grab your attention?
This is a little difficult to answer. Most of my reading slumps occur when I don’t want to read any of the unread books on my shelf, but I can’t get any other books (for various reasons: I can’t spend the money, I can’t get to the library at the moment, the library doesn’t have anything I actually want either….). I have to admit that, a lot of times, I just wait it out. It’s hard to believe, but there are fun things to do besides read! So I keep busy and eventually something on my shelf looks appealing or I happen to stumble across a fascinating book online or somewhere else. Maybe a reading slump is sort of like writer’s block?
What are your strategies for dealing with this problem?
