The Dreaded Reading Slump

I am in the midst of a full blown reading slump. At first I thought it was just because of all the stuff going on here - Sinterklaas, my daughter's 5th birthday, her birthday party plus the usual school, appointments, errands. But as I began to get downtime to just sit and read, I still didn't want to. I'd sit down with a book (and a cup of tea) and after one page I'd be looking around for other things to do.

So I apologize if you don't see many reviews here in the next few weeks. I'll try to post about other bookish things, and hopefully I'll be out of this slump soon. I'm looking forward to the new year and the new books and challenges it brings.


  1. Yes, 2012 is my motivation! I've signed up for two challenges and I have a little personal challenge of my own for February.

    I'll spend the rest of 2011 working on a wrap-up post, setting up my reading challenge posts, and putting together a couple of Top 10 lists.

  2. Sadly, we've all been there. I sympathize and hope that the New Year brings you back. Maybe try re-reading an old favourite to inspire that spark again.
