We all go through this right? I'm sure I can't be the only one. Those times when you just don't feel like reading.
I know. I'm shocked too. But I go through these periods occasionally. The most recent was this past weekend. Phil and I have been rewatching the first 3 seasons of Game of Thrones before season 4 premieres this Sunday. We got kind of a late start.... So last weekend we just started binge watching to get through it in time. Let me just tell you guys that I LOVE that show. (No, I have not read the books yet.) So as soon as we started watching, I didn't want to do anything else but watch GOT all weekend. Including reading. So my Kindle sat neglected on my coffee table.
But then I start to get stressed. Some of you may not know this about me, but I am not a mood reader so I have a loose reading schedule I follow in an attempt to read my ARCs in some type of order. But I'll talk more about that some other time. Anyway, because of this, if I go through a period of nonreading, I get stressed because I feel like I fall behind. But I don't want to force myself to read because then I won't enjoy the book.
So what do I do? Mostly just keep binge watching GOT and then read really fast to "catch up". Most of the times it works out for me because I do read really fast, but other times I have to cut my "free book" of the week which is disappointing.
Do you ever go through periods where you don't feel like reading? What do you do to get over this kind of "slump"? Do you also feel like you fall behind on your TBR?
