It’s something we all dread—that moment when, no matter how many great books fill your shelves, you can’t find anything of interest to read. The weeks where you barely pick up a book. The time during which you’re unable to finish anything you do manage to pick up. Yep, that’s right—I’m talking about the Reading Slump!
Elizabeth: God, I hate to admit it, but I LOVE fanfiction when I’ve got nothing else to read.
Rafael: I change language. When nothing in English appeals to me, I go around my Spanish and Italian bookshelves; if still nothing grips me, I dig in the German one.
Ronald: I read several books at one time. That way I tend to maintain interest in something.
This is easy. I get out of a reading slump by switching to manga for a while. Pretty bishie guys and large moe eyes—fun! @PRationality
What’s this “reading slump” you speak of? @KarenBaskins
I start with something familiar and often re-read @ruthbeingruth
I wish I knew. I’ve been in one for months @scottaylorpgh
Stop reading for work for a week, and just read something for pleasure. Happens to agents and editors all the time @ColleenLindsay
Sit up straighter maybe? ;-) @sfbook
Read something that you normally would not read? @QQwill
Do you have any suggestions? Which of the above work best for you?
