"Musing Mondays"


This week’s musing hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading asks…
Describe the last time you were stumped for something to read, and you took measures to remedy that — either by going to the bookstore, the library, or shopping elsewhere. What book did you choose? Did it get you out of your slump?
I don't often get in a reading slump. However, if I feel myself in a slump, I find it is usually when I am reading a book that is a bit on the boring side, at least to me. Sometimes, I just put the book aside, never to be read by me again. Other times, if the book is a newer book that the library doesn't have, I will donate it to the library. I always feel there is probably someone who will like the book, even though it isn't my cup of tea. I have many books I haven't read yet, so I just pull another one off my bookshelf and start reading. Once in awhile, I just take a few days off from reading, and find in a few days I am as good as new, and ready to start reading something again. Something that always lifts my spirits is a visit to my favorite bookstore, B&N.


How about you, what do you do if you get in a reading slump?

  1. I am in a slump now after getting to books I don't want to read. The good thing is they were from the library.

  2. Just being around books works but then it doesn't. Contradiction???

    Here is my Monday: Mailbox/What Are You Reading?/Musings post!

  3. Donating books you didn't enjoy to the library is a great idea! I may have to look into that. It might be a good way to get rid of some of the books that I've either read, or will never get around to reading.

    Stopping in for Musing Mondays and am a new follower. Have a lovely week!
