Hello, today, I decided to take part in TGIF. Actually, it's just because I really like the question(: Anyway, TGIF is a meme from GReads and well, I hope to take part in it more often (it really depends on the questions...)

So, this week's question is:

Reading Blues: We all get them from time to time. What helps you overcome those reading slumps when nothing seems to grab your attention?

Hmm... I seem to get blogging blues more than reading blues. I just don't feel like writing down my feelings (even though I may have a lot). I deal with that, however, by simply taking a break, because I don't want blogging to turn into a chore. That being said, it's very rare for me to have a reading slump. In fact, I normally have the opposite problem, too many books to read! But when I do get these rare slumps, I normaly re-read an old favourite, like Sarah Dessen or Agatha Christie until I find what I need. Sometimes, I need really weird books, like a business and management textbook :p Once I re-read, I tend to get out of the reading slump and all these new books suddenly look enticing again(:

So, what do you do when you have a reading slump?


  1. Re-reading old favorites seems to be the solution for a majority of readers! I do that as well, apart from taking a couple of days' break or doing something entirely different!

    Your blog's interesting! :)

  2. When I have a reading slump I usually take a little time off or switch genres. And I hear ya about the blogging slump - sometimes I just don't feel like being on the computer!

  3. great tips!! i hadn't thought of reading an old fave again.
