Today’s question:
Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week…

• Describe one of your reading habits.
• Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
• Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.

My thoughts:

Today, I will discuss reading habits.

As you see above, today starts another Read-A-Thon.  I signed up for another one earlier this month, and didn’t even start.  Today, I am hoping this will jump start my reading slump.  For the past few months, the majority of my time has been in front of the computer keeping up with the many VT bookings at PICT and PBP.  And by the time, I try to relax and read, my eyes are so tired that I doze off, which could also be age lol.  But today, I am hopeful, because the settings will be right.

I love to read, and always have, during any type of storms.  And today in New England, a snow storm is predicted.  I have mentioned that I have my reading room/office set up whereas my reading chair sits in a corner facing a window on the opposite side of the room where I can look up and see the elements.  During a snow storm, I will be covered in a fleece throw with a hot cup of coffee and my book.  So am hoping that because the setting will be conducive to reading and the incentive of the Read-A-Thon, that my slump will end.

When in a reading slump, what do you do to end it?

Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia of A girl and her books and is now on tour.
According to Marcia, “Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.

  1. I love to cozy up with a book when it’s stormy out, too. I’m not sure if the storm is going to affect us here in the top of Maine. Reading slumps drive me crazy because I love to read so much. I hang tight through it, though and just keep reading.

  2. Welcome to the read-a-thon, Cheryl! Hope you’re able to get some good reading in this week.

  3. Good luck getting out of your slump. Enjoy the storm and reading. I am a new follower.

  4. Have you tried audio books?

  5. I would love to be covered in a blanket watching the snow pile up outside. I sure do miss those days! All your books are new to me. Hope you enjoy them!

  6. If I’m in a reading slump I usually take some time out without trying to read at all and immerse myself in something different. I don’t set a deadline to get back to reading I just pick up a book whenever the urge hits me again. It usually passes but it might take a while. Hope your out of your slump soon.

  8. I hope the Read-A-Thon does its magic, and the reading slump disappeared with the vanishing rabbit. Otherwise, we will have to put you in one of those things they saw you in half, and see if that will scare you out of that slump.
