Hi gang, I decided to do a weekly coffee chat. This week's topic is reader's burnout, block, slump, whatever term you want to call it. I realized lately, that I've been feeling a bit burned out, and have to force myself to read. I never had that problem before. Earlier, I had been reading any type of genre for this blog, but I kept getting books that I couldn't finish, just couldn't get into them. so, I went back to my three favorite genres, Scifi, Fantasy, and Mysteries.
I've gotten behind on my reading, luckily most of the authors are understanding about it. But, I feel bad for taking so long. I know it might be cause, I need my eyes checked and glasses. Plus, I have other health issues.
My questions for you all, have you had an issue with reader's burnout? If so, how do you handle it? Please, feel free to post in the comments, maybe other's will find it useful too? Thanks bunches!
The only thing I know to do, is to work on my own novel or write short stories. But, then I feel guilty for not reading?
Hope you all have a wonderful week!
