What do you do when you’re in a reading slump and just can’t find a book to settle into? It’s a miserable feeling. I wander aimlessly round my bookshelves pulling out books and putting them back again. I collect books from the library and send them back unread. I browse my recommendations at Amazon. I read blogs. I also try rereading my old faithful authors and books – Jane Austen, P G Wodehouse, Diana Wynne Jones.
Sometimes, though, none of those things work. I’m reading Damsel In Distress by P G Wodehouse at the moment. And it’s not helping. I’m about half way through it and will probably finish it over the weekend, and I’m enjoying it well enough. But it’s not giving me that lost in a book feeling that I look for. I can take it or leave it.
I’m sure that if I can just find the right book, all will be well. But which book is the right one?
