Out of curiosity, how do all of you get out of a book hangover?Out of curiosity, how do all of you get out of a book hangover? Rachel #questionnaire
I read a short love story. It’s the only time I read romance but they’re perfect for getting my mind off of my last book
I go straight to my default genre and pick one that’s been on hold for ‘special occasions’
I read something in a completely different genre.
Hair of the dog. I just start another one. 😀
Takes me awhile…let me know if you find out. I’m gonna try an audible book in a different genres than I normally read.
Hair of the dog, my friend! (Read another book! ?)
Especially podcasts about books! ❤️
@Dana for me I go the opposite, but I do love pods about books!
Take a few days then pick up a new book
Depending upon the genre, I like to live in those feelings for a while—if I feel an emotional attachment. Allow them to reveal the messages tucked between the words. Examine how they affect me, and my perception of the world.
Read the sequel.
Hair of the dog! haha
Short stories usually help me. The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes or something from http://classicshorts.com/ works for me.
Re-read an old friend. About to do this right now after finishing Gentleman in Moscow. Next up, 15th reading of A Few Green Leaves. 🙂
Magazines before starting a new book.
Start a new book!
A little hair of the dog that bit me.
I just keep reading.
I never stopped.
I can’t just start any old book. Either another of the same author (it’s hard to switch style) or a huge move – fiction to nonfiction, for instance.
Read a light story, or short stories, then excitedly look at my piles of books and decide what to read next!! Love that feeling….
Just smile and take a breath.then dive into the next book.!
What is a book hangover? To be hungover implies over indulgence and there is no such thing when it comes to books!
If nothing is grabbing me, I’ll take a break from reading for a bit. Maybe watch some book YouTube videos or peruse a bookstore if I want to get back into something.
Pick up a book that’s more difficult to read. For example, I’m reading GOT off and on. A lot of those books are taxing to read for me, so I’ll read a few chapters here and there. I can’t sit down and read all day in those books.
Never had one!
What a great idea!
