Reader’s Block?

Musing Mondays2

This week’s musing asks:

When you’re stuck for a book to read next, what do you do?

I usually have a few books—books that for sure are up my alley—lined up so I don’t go haywired about hunting down for the next good read. Thanks to the wonderful book bloggers who have common reading taste. That said, I still have my reader’s block days. If I’m stuck in one, I’ll go through my pile and pick up different books until one holds my attention. The ultimate rescue is the bookstore. I’m lucky to live in a walkable city in which every neighborhood has an independent bookstore. I’ll grab the leash and bring the dog along, go browse books and buy something. I’ll start with authors whose works I had enjoyed and worked my way through memory lane.

  1. I can’t remember the last time I had this problem, LOL!

  2. I often have this problem but it’s not for want of something to read, it’s a struggle to find the right flavour of book to suit my mood. This week I was stuck and scrolling through my kindle I decided to just read whatever book came up under ‘Z’. Thankfully it was Collum McCann’s Zoli and I am in heaven!
