Thus, this post is solely to help readers to get out of a reading slump if they experience such... tragedy! I will point out 5 tips on "How to get out of a reading slump" which may actually get you out of it! Disclaimer though, that this tips is based on my personal experience and doesn't necessarily covers every reader! atleast, some of it may still help!
- Light reads & Re-reads.
Favorite book At the moment (Since 2010)
If you cannot cope up to the plot or get into a book, don't pressure yourself! you might feel discouraged by the fact that you cannot enjoy the book but try reading less sophisticated books, perhaps a light read or a short novel to read before taking the serious ones! Re-read your most favorite book to get you back on track!
- "Rest" yourself.
This rest is not about like, being so tired but about being sturdy around books. reading slumps may trigger something in your brain that cannot contain anymore words, hence giving you a feeling of not reading, yep tragic! distance yourslef to books (I know, it's really hard) to make you kinda like crave for books to read, surely you'll feel the adrenaline and excitement to see books again and to read!
- Seize the moment.
I'm obsessed w/ the Tv Series and currently reading the first book!
- Chapter by Chapter.
with the reading slump, I doubt you'll never finish a book! so invest a period of time everyday to read a chapter. A chapter a day really encouraged me to read the whole thing, though it will take time but it's hell effective!
- Keep in touch.
If you don't feel like reading, and just lounge on your social media accounts, keep in touch of books! such as on instagram, if you follow fellow readers, take time to see pictures of books and the book-related captions. or on twitter, reading book quotes (if you follow such accounts) may keep you still in to books.
I see reading slumps both as a burden and an opportunity. Burden, because hey, reading novels is such a majestic hobby and you are ought to accept the fact that you cannot do it. and an opportunity because, it lets you experience more than reading, it does broaden the span of your bondaries to things as enjoyable and satisfying as reading books! Get out of it and you'll get back on track. stucked in it, try new things to do, but misses sniffing books... It's Hard! Hopefully this'll help you guys who may be experiencing such events! don't worry, its normal for bookworms! hahaha!
