It happens even to the best readers from time to timeâ€¦ you close the cover on the book youâ€™re reading and discover, to your horror, that thereâ€™s nothing else to read. Either thereâ€™s nothing in the house, or nothing youâ€™re in the mood for. Just, nothing that â€œclicks.â€ What do you do?? How do you get the reading wheels turning again? – BTT
Well, “there’s nothing in the house” does not apply to me because I always have at least a 20 books from the library that I sometimes never get around to reading and just keep renewing if no one has requested them. I actually weeded a couple library books last week; I’m trying harder. I also tend to have books that I bought and own, but have not read yet. As for the mood thing, I like to think that I keep an assortment of books around me, but if I really have nothing. I fall back on my other hobbies: movies, knitting, and I read fanfiction when the mood strikes. Hee. Usually, I get back to reading fairly quickly because I have such a broad range of interests. I’m usually kept from reading rather than not wanting to read.
Currently, I’m reading Heat by Bill Buford. I’ll probably be done it for today which means book review this weekend. I’ll also be finishing up the Sally Lockhart series in the next week or so. Yay for young adult historical fiction.
You know, I think that’s true for me too, that I am usually kept from reading rather than not wanting to read.
