Booking Through Thursday
It happens even to the best readers from time to time… you close the cover on the book you’re reading and discover, to your horror, that there’s nothing else to read. Either there’s nothing in the house, or nothing you’re in the mood for. Just, nothing that “clicks.” What do you do?? How do you get the reading wheels turning again?
Don’t forget to leave a link to your actual response (so people don’t have to go searching for it) in the comments—or if you prefer, leave your answers in the comments themselves!
In my house, there's always something to read on the shelves, whether or not I want to read what's there is another story. I sometimes get into reading slumps, usually if I've been reading heavy material. My brain just can't take it. So I say....
Yes, something completely different, usually something light and fun. If I don't have it at home, I'll troll the library shelves until I find something. Chicklit is great for preventing literary brain drain, especially anything with 'confessions' in the title.
Then there are the tried but true. If I just don't have it in me, I'll get a favorite off the shelves. I know I won't be disappointed. I already know the characters, they're like friends. That helps to kick start my passion for reading again.
