The timing on Julie’s question this week couldn’t have been better because I’m actually struggling with my own reading slump at the moment and for once I can’t even blame the book that I’m reading. I work in finance and if any of you are accountants out there you’ll know that this is a very busy time of the year for us number crunchers. Yes, it’s the end of the fiscal year. I’ve been so overwhelmed with deadlines and stress lately that when it’s finally time to unwind I fall asleep. Needless to say, I’m not getting much reading done! Unfortunately, our audit hasn’t even officially begun yet so there’s not an end in sight for the foreseeable future.
When I’m in a reading slump I usually try and shake things up a bit by either reading a genre that I haven’t read in a while, picking-up a book that’s been on my wishlist for ages or even downloading an audiobook.
However, at the moment, not even my go-to cures seem to be doing me much good. Don’t be surprised if a notice goes up shortly on the blog letting my dear followers know that I’m taking a temporary break until work dies down a bit. I’m quite torn over it but sometimes you just have to do what you have to do.
What about you?
