What do you do to get through a reading slump?
For me, reading slumps usually occur when I’ve been reading too much of the same type of book- too many memoirs, fantasies, or children’s classics. So for me the easiest way out of a reading slump is to pick up a different type of book. That’s a lot of the reason that I tend to read multiple books at the same time. It keeps me from getting in a slump, because when I need a break from a book or writing style, I can easily switch over to something else.
I recently finished reading Michael Pollan‘s The Omnivore’s Dilemma. It’s a treatise about how we get our food, with a focus on the moral implications of our eating habits and the food industry. And it was a lot to take in. I learned a lot, but I can guarantee that I wouldn’t have been able to get through it if I hadn’t been able to take a break in the fictional world of Welcome to Night Vale when things got too dense.
Do you have a go to solution for getting or staying out of a reading slump?
