How To Get Out of Your Reading Rut

It happens to the best of us…we say we are going to read, read, read and then once life catches up to us or we aren’t feeling inspired the reading stops. And it may take a while to get back into the swing of things. 

But don’t worry! Follow some of these tips to put you back in the reading mood!

  1. Listen to recommendations.

Sometimes things truly go in one ear and out the other, but try and listen to what your fellow readers have to say! Give one of their recommendations a shot, you might be pleasantly surprised. 

  1. Pick up an old favorite. 

Go back to a book you know you love to put you back into the mood. After you finish it you may be more eager to try something new.

  1. Celebrity reading lists. 

If you have a favorite celebrity like Reese Witherspoon or Oprah take a look at their reading list. It could spark some inspiration!

  1. Judge a book by its cover. 

I know. I know. But sometimes it’s necessary! Take a good stroll through the bookstore or browse a website and just see what catches your eye. You want to look for something that you know you will open!

  1. Try a new method.

If you have only picked up a paperback book, switch it up! Listen to an audiobook or try an ebook out and see if you like it better. 

I get in my own rut from time to time, but I like to use these tips for myself to put me back in my reading game! Try them out and see if they work for you!

Happy Reading!
