Hey everyone! I haven’t had any discussions up here in quite a while, so I thought what is the most common thing that we wish to avoid? Reading Slumps!
Hence, here I am sharing some tips and tricks to avoid reading slumps.
PART 1: IDENTIFYING THE REASON!
The first step to getting over a reading slump is to identify the reason you are in it. I have seen that it is usually either of these two reasons:
A. THIS BOOK IS TOO GOOD AND NOTHING ELSE CAN COMPARE
This happens when you finish an extremely good book and when you start another book after it, you unreasonably compare them and the second book is unable to match up. (Basically, what happens to me most of the time)
B. WHY IS NO BOOK INTERESTING?!
This happens when you start a few books are unable to get interested in them in the first few pages and you give up. When this happens twice or thrice in a row, you end up in a reading slump!
PART 2: WHAT USUALLY HAPPENS AFTER THIS
D. Other hobbies/ activities
Now, here’s a WARNING: Do not go over to Netflix and waste your time. Nope, you will not be able to come back.
So, what should really be part 2?
Here we go:
PART 2: FINDING A SOLUTION
A. Reread your Favourites
According to me, this is the best solution to get over reading slumps. It is a confirmed, tried and tested solution in which you can never go wrong! So, go on, pick up a book you loved and let the reading slump end.
B. Read a book your friends love
Usually, we like books that are liked by others who have the same taste as us, so go find someone who likes to read the same type of books as us what they recommend and bam! You have something to read. 99% of the times, this won’t disappoint.
PART 3: YOU ARE BACK ON TRACK
BAM! It is like the reading slump never existed. There you go 🙂
