Let’s talk about anything bookish!
If you have been a reader on my blog for a few months, you will know that I had been in an on-and-off book slump of sorts and I have managed to get out of that funk fairly quickly!
So, I decided to share my tips of getting out of a slump and even how to avoid it! Are you still with me?
ONE: Reread your favorites
One of the things I do is reread my favorites. This is because I KNOW that I would enjoy these books because I have already read them. So, I KNOW what I would be getting. Sometimes, I reread a couple of favorites and it usually gets me out of my slump.
TWO: Try different formats
I try to alternate between reading and listening to audiobooks. I listen to audiobooks during my work commute but I also listen to it while working out, doing chores, and sometimes while playing mobile games. At night, I read, usually digitally. But it does help to have a variety of formats to break the monotony.
THREE: Avoid binge-reading
I am guilty of binge-reading but I usually get into a slump after a binge reading an author, a series, or a genre. So, avoid it at all cost or risk getting into an epic slump.
FOUR: Alternate between different genres or sub-genres
I also alternate reading between different genres or subgenres to help me out and avoid the dreaded reading slump. However, I still fail at this most of the time because I tend to read multiple books in one genre. Obviously, I get into another slump when this happens. I guess I never learn.
FIVE: Reading breaks
Try not to read for a day or two. This really helps me and invigorates my reading mood. This helps me avoid any slump that is about to happen.
