I have a couple of different methods that I rely on to help me overcome reading slumps because I HATE reading slumps! Reading is my favorite thing to do, so it's always a bummer when I'm in a slump. Luckily, I find that I don't stay in reading slumps for too long!
First, I have a special section on my bookshelf containing books that I'm dying to read (and know that I will love). I have specifically saved these particular books for times when I know that I will desperately need to read something really amazing to get out of a reading slump.
The above photograph is currently what is on the section of my bookshelf with books I've been saving to read. Most are books that are part of a series that I already love, but others are books that I just have a really good feeling about and am pretty certain that I will love (like Divergent or Of Poseidon).
Second, I revisit a favorite book. I don't re-read books nearly as much as I would like to, but there's something very comforting about re-reading a favorite. The below photograph is a section of my bookshelf containing books that I've already read, loved, and would like to re-read sometime.
Third, I change up my reading format. I love reading paper books, but I'm also a fan of my Kindle and audiobooks. Sometimes it's nice to switch between the various formats to keep it interesting! I'm trying to refrain from buying more paper books at this point in time because I have too many in my apartment, but it's always fun to buy a new Kindle book (I'm still amazed about how it gets delivered instantly... like magic!) or spend an Audible credit.
