So I have a short discussion post for you today! And by short, I really do mean short – for which I really do apologise for but my motivation has just been shot in half lately, but that’s a post for a different day! Today I want to talk about reading slumps.
Supposedly everyone has a period of time where they just don’t feel like reading. Maybe they just want to do something else instead. But what happens when a long period of time passes and you realise you haven’t really been reading for a few weeks now? How do you finally get yourself out of that slump?
I am asking this to all of you because I have found myself currently in a reading slump.
The problem I am having is that I’m struggling to finish books. I keep picking a book up, reading to about 10% and then finding myself bored of reading and putting the book down. Then, the thought of reading that same book just makes me not want to read at all, but then I get behind or get entised by something else so start reading that instead and then.. yeah… a loop ensues. So I want to know if YOU have some tried and tested theories to help get out of these horrible reading slumps.
I want to read, I just don’t feel like reading. So tell me, how would you/do you solve this?
