Do you ever feel like reading, and you might as well drown in your TBR but you just…… can’t?
Bad news? Yup, you are very ill.
Good news? I have the cure.
I mean, I’ve suffered multiple reading slumps. They are very very annoying.
Make a list of what you want to read.
Sometimes it helps seeing your goals on a piece of paper or a sticky note right in front of you.
Tip #2 (this is very risky, because it can aggravate your illness)
Trust your favourite book. Reread.
It can sometimes raise the bar too high and push you deeper into a reading slump.
But rereading a favourite and playing it safe, it can help. Best case scenario, you’ll be finishing tons of books in no time. Worst case scenario, you will read that book for the rest of your life,nothing else.
If you don’t like playing it safe, try something new.
Short stories (Ha, creepypasta because sleep is for the weak), novellas, poetry. Read something easy and short.
Go to the library
Seriously, don’t say you got no money for buying books. Go to that library and pick one book.
Or just look around at people reading, maybe they will inspire you.
Read when you eat, read when you have some free time. A page, a chapter, five. Just keep reading. Eventually, you will remember how it feels to finish one book in one day.
In the end, you read because you love books. Never NEVER feel like you are forced to read.
