How do you overcome a reading slump?
Read a book you already love or a book that takes little to no effort to read. Works every time for me at least. 🙂
Light, quick, easy read. For me it’s usual a nice YA or sometimes am old favorite
Usually for me, I switch genres! I typically read fantasy, but if I get in a reading slump I’ll read a contemporary book to get out of it ? It usually helps because you switch it up a bit from the book that gave you the slump
Raid my Goodreads want-to-read list and give my librarian a hernia ?
I reread my favorites until I find something that grabs me
I do exactly the same thing as Gina, on the comment above. I reread old favorites.
Delete my current reads list… Put all my cr’s aside, restart ??
I’ll reread some of my favorite books or maybe just my favorite parts of some books. Audiobooks help too. I really miss reading if I let a slump go on too long so if I’m having troubles getting into anything new I’ll turn on an audiobook and play a video game for awhile. Sometimes it’ll take a few weeks for something I’m listening to to spark my interest but sooner or later I’ll find a book I’m utterly impatient to finish and voila, book slump over.
Listen to audiobooks while traveling.
Walk a bookstore’s isles..
Read something ” light” perhaps a comic..,or a graphic novel…( Archie comics?..or graphic novel , something with anime..)
Don’t know, never had one. That would be like a breathing slump to me. ?
By doing some other activity. I watch the series I neglected in favor of reading, I play games, I listen to music, … And I keep at ot as long as reading doesn’t appeal to me anymore. It usually does the trick.
Read a fav book again
I’d first be sure the slump is only affecting reading. I get them when I get depression and that has to be dealt with before I can easily start reading again.
I love, love, love reading but having a slump at the moment, my mums in hospital, not doing so great and I can’t get into a book. Thanks for the suggestions I might try to re read The great Gastby, my favourite book and not long. It’s funny that reading lovers can go into a slump
Sorry to hear this. Much hugs from this end of the world (Australia). Don’t let the slump worry you , you’ve got a lot on your mind; it’s perfectly reasonable.
I always read a book I’ve read many times. That way I can still enjoy the book, but do not have to worry about missing anything.
Binge Netflix for a while

Switch genres, read something light, or reread a favorite
