I have been in a serious reading slump lately. Work is busy, yes. I am traveling more, yes. There are family events happening, yes. However, none of that has ever stopped me from reading before.
But, ALAS! It has! I looked over the blog and found that I had a slump in 2013, then again in 2015. So, it stands to reason that, after the cursory two years, it is time for another one.
I have tried to read “The Pillars of the Earth” by Ken Follett, “Mrs. Poe” by Lynn Cullen, “I’m Thinking of Ending Things” by Iain Reid, “Beartown” by Fredrik Backman, and I never finished the tome “4321” by Paul Auster.
So, I am going to read as I feel like it. There is a reason my brain wants to take a reading break, and I am not going to fight my subconscious by entertaining the myriad of articles on how to overcome a reading slump.
Embrace the slump!
