Do you have reading (and or blogging) slumps?
If you haven't noticed from my blogging I'm in a reading/blogging slump.
When do you get reading slumps? ... What causes them?
I've been in full-on avoidance of pressure mode and that (unfortunately) means vegging in front of the TV and little else (oh, and sleeping, but I'm blaming the nasty cold I got for that).
I read one book this past week (The Tale of Despereaux: being the story of a mouse, a princess, some soup, and a spool of thread by Kate DiCamillo, Illustrated by Timothy Basil Ering). That isn't normal for me.
Please pardon me while I make a brief detour. The discussion will eventually get back on track...
Now to update on my last discussion/question (THANKS for all the advice/responses!), I ended up going back to B&N on Tuesday (following my post). That was sooner than I planned and meant I didn't get the opportunity to research. While there, I remembered one book I do still need by a favorite author of mine (Robin D. Owens). Unfortunately, they didn't have anything by her in stock. I'll be buying Heart Change online. But I've been waiting until I can get the rest of the series (currently boxed up at my brother's house).
Which brings me back to the question on hand. I'm sure I can get out of this reading slump once I have a series I know and love on hand (and I may sneak some other comfort reading books while I'm at it). Comfort reading can pretty much always get me out of a slump.
How do you get past reading slumps?
(And doesn't that sound like some horrible disease?)
