Reader’s block, How to tackle it?

Tags:      

Reading a book is a fun, it simply opens up a new realm where you find peace, sorrow, and happiness. But there comes a certain time in life when the readers don’t just want to read, they can’t simply proceed from 10 pages. So if this thing is happening with you then you are definitely suffering from reader’s block. This is similar to the writer’s block but where writer’s block is an acceptable aspect, reader’s block is not.

Reader’s block can happen when you read some really pathetic book (Yes! It happens with me 🙁 ) or are mentally distracted. However, there are many reasons but these two are the primary reasons.

If you are also suffering from reader’s block then do not worry you are not alone! Do read the below mentioned easy tips to revive your reading habit . 🙂

1)  Read a short story collection:

This trick really works for me. Instead of pounding your head to the lengthy novels take a break and read some quick, interesting and engaging short stories. Reading a short story requires very less time but I have to admit that it is as rewarding as reading a novel. For this, I always prefer reading Ruskin Bond’s books. They are short yet fascinating. Here are some good collection of short stories which I have read and reviewed.

2)  Take a break:

Yes! Take a break. Reading is not an easy task it is a mental exercise where your mind can be exhaust. So sometimes taking a break from constant reading really helps. You can simply indulge yourself to dancing, painting, cooking or anything else which you like.

3)  Re-read your favorites:

We all must have this one book which we love to read again and again. So pick this book from your bookshelf and read it again. You don’t have to read it entirely just simply read your favorite chapters.

4) Push yourself by Goodreads:

Goodreads is a heaven for the readers! I think none of the readers can survive without Goodreads. All you need to do is simply set a reading goal and keep it updating. This year I want to read 60 books and I always try to be ahead of my schedule by five books. So if I am getting behind on my reading schedule then I literally push myself into speed reading. And currently I am four books ahead of my schedule which is okay but it is showing that I have to finish my current book soon. The point of saying all these things is keep monitoring your reading speed and set a goal and if you are lacking behind it then push yourself. (Yes, Serious readers do this!)

5) Read a comic book:

Reading comic books is always fun. And when you are struggling with a reader’s block then it definitely helps you to overcome from the boredom reading.  I always pick my old best diamond comics of Chacha Chaudhary, Pinki, and Billu.

6) Try a different genre:

Trying a totally different genre can sometimes help you to tackle reader’s block. It will help to break a monotonous reading. For e.g.  If you love crime & thriller then do try mythology. I suggest you reading Kavita Kane and Devdutt Pattanaik’s book.

7) Read about reading:

Yes! Read about the new book release, read book reviews of your favorite books. In short, all you need to do this is update with the reading world so that it can inspire you to start reading again.

8) Go on book shopping spree:

Seems an illogical tip but it really helps. Go to your nearest book shop or the shop which sell the used books. Hunting a good book in a pile will make you feel a reader again and I can bet that after coming back to the home you’ll start reading that book. If you are lazy like me then amazon.in is the best option for book shopping.

9) Rearrange your bookshelf:

Utilize your reader’s block to clean your bookshelf (Just kidding 😛 ) All you need to do this pull out each book of your bookshelf, dust it and rearrange it. When you will do this then your will feel your love towards books, you will feel the memories attached with a book and in no time you will find yourself sitting near the pile of the book, reading.

The above-mentioned tips are so easy and can be easily implemented by anyone. Thus if you are struggling with a reader’s block then do try these tips and be a cool reader again! 🙂

I was provided a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange of an honest book review. So at first, I would like to thank them. The title itself suggests that it is a story of a bride or better say a girl. 
The complications of marriage and choosing a suitable bride and groom is the interesting part of this book. .

There is nothing like reading a collection of #shortstories stories. I simply love reading them. They serve various emotions in few pages and that’s what makes short stories beautiful. This book comes as a review copy from the publisher @niyogi_books and @trisha_niyogi so at first, I would like to give them huge thanks. .

I have read this book last year but wasn’t able to write a review due to various things in personal life. The author has provided the copy of this book in exchange for an honest book review. So at first, I would like to thanks him.
.
This book has 15 chapters; each describes a lie which we tend to speak in our life. Though we don’t realize these little lazy lies are the main hurdle in our success.
.
This is a short book, enveloped with impressive life lessons! Totally recommend to those who want to get best from their life.

Set in the backdrop of Patna this book depicts a story of Abhik, an engineer at Ashok Leyland Company. He has been transferred to the Patna from Kolkata and seeing Patna through his eyes is really amusing. He is little weak in speaking English, thus decided to join an English speaking class. Abhik is suffering from a broken love which makes him hesitate to fall in love again. However, he is smitten by the beauty of Radhika, the most beautiful and talented girl in the class. They started going out for coffee and dinner but they both afraid to share the feeling. Then one day a thing happens which makes Radhika go away from Abhik. Radhika is devastated. Why Radhika decides to stay away from Abhik? Does Abhik love Radhika or he still loves his ex-girlfriend? What is the love destiny of Abhik and Radhika? Who truly wins the love in this love triangle? Read this touching and inspiring love story, which makes you remind your love days.

In last year, I have read several mythologies based adventurous book. Being a #mythology fan, I truly enjoyed them. This book comes from the @writersmelon for the review purpose. The name of the book and blurb are enough to attract any mythology lover like me.
