Happy Friday book friends! It’s that time of the week for Let Talk Bookish and we will be discussing taking breaks from reading. The Let’s Talk Bookish Meme is a weekly meme that is created and hosted by Rukky@EternityBooks and Dani@Literary Lion. Today’s theme was suggested by Lydia @ Lydia Scoch.
Do you ever take breaks from reading? Yes but it usually comes because I am in a book slump. Book slumps usually happen for me if I force myself to finish a book I am not enjoying at all or if I read too many books in a similar genre and I get bored with my reading.
What causes you to take a reading break and how long are they typically? Book slumps and they can last a day or two till a couple of weeks. They usually do not last longer than a month.
When would you recommend reading breaks to others? I think everyone is different and it is up to that individual if they want to take a break from reading.
Do you think reading breaks help you to read more in the long run? I don’t think they help me read more but they usually come at a time when I need a shake up of the content that I am consuming. I usually rotate between romance, scifi/fantasy and thrillers and my breaks usually come with a change.
