The Slump: Britain in the Great Depression | Chris Cook, John Stevenson
post image

Littens, I‘m in the biggest slump ever 😫😫
We‘re coming up to over 2.5 months of limited reading and no energy or motivation to read. I haven‘t even been very active on Litsy either

THIS IS THE WORST AGH 🤬😭😭 #bookslump #sendhelp #missyouall

AkashaVampie Aww im sorry to hear that sweetie!! It sucks when a slump comes along. What type of books do u usually like read? 2y
Eggbeater Here's hoping that slump ends soon! 💕 2y
Hestapleton I feel this. Slumps pass! Don‘t fight it! Just do whatever brings you joy at the moment. The books will be there when you‘re ready. :) 2y

LiteraryinLawrence That‘s so hard! I agree that you shouldn‘t try to force it. You are still a reader if you don‘t read the same amount in every season of your life. 💗 2y
PurpleyPumpkin Argh, I hate when that happens! But you‘ll find your way back to reading, hopefully sooner than later. Maybe you just need the new year and a new beginning. 👍🏽😉💜 2y
Sace Like others, I also find it helpful to just accept the slump and find joy elsewhere for now. I had a slump that lasted at least a year, but eventually the desire to read came back and books started interesting me again. 2y
BookwormAHN Reading slumps suck, have you tried audio books? Sometimes they help. 2y
EllieDottie I know how you feel! This sums up my 2019! You‘re not alone! Sending good vibes!! 2y
KirstieE @AkashaVampie usually I read YA, fantasy or thriller! 2y
KirstieE @Eggbeater @Hestapleton @LiteraryinLititz @PurpleyPumpkin @Sace @BookwormAHN @EllieDottie I think I‘ll do what you guys suggested and not fight it and just accept it! Hopefully the new year will give me my boost back ! 2y
AkashaVampie @KirstieE those are good genres. Not telling u what to do by any means but I have 2 book clubs if u would like to join. Anyone is welcome at anytime. The links are in my info on my page if u are interested. In each group we read 1 book a month (so if u join both it would only be 2 books a month), so that it's not too much. One is a paranormal romance club and the other is book to show/movie club. 2y
AkashaVampie @KirstieE next month is Fairy/Fae for paranormal romance which is the book Influential Magic. And the book to movie is Sci-fi which is The Martian 2y
