Book slump! How do you get over them? Do you take breaks from reading? 📖 Lately, I’ve been feeling that it’s been awhile since I’ve found a book I’ve really enjoyed and loved without hesitation. My last few reads I liked but I didn’t love. I’ve been reading, slowly, but constantly these past few months and I got to thinking maybe it’s time for a break? I felt maybe I’ve been reading so much I’m just numb to whatever I’m reading or feel a little overwhelmed. I think that might be the best way to describe it. So I decided to take a reading break that lasted about 2 weeks and I must say I was feeling a hole where reading used to be! Slowly easing myself into reading again. 📖 Meanwhile, here's a picture from Urquhart Castle overlooking Loch Ness in Scotland. Sadly, no monsters were sited this day. 🦑 ¿Tomas descansos de leer libros? 📖 Últimamente, he estado sintiendo que ha pasado un tiempo desde que encontré un libro que realmente disfruté y amé sin dudarlo. Mis últimas lecturas me gustaron pero no me encantaron. He estado leyendo, lentamente, pero constantemente estos últimos meses y llegué a pensar, ¿tal vez es hora de un descanso? Sentí que he estado leyendo tanto que estoy insensible a lo que leo o me siento un poco abrumado. Creo que esa podría ser la mejor manera de describirlo. Así que decidí tomar un descanso de leer que duro 2 semanas y realmente estaba sintiendo un agujero donde solía estar mis libros. Poco a poco estoy empezando a leer nuevamente. 📖 Mientras tanto, aquí hay una foto del Castillo de Urquhart con vistas al lago Ness en Escocia. Tristemente, ningún monstruo fue localizado este día. 🦑 #bookslump#readingbreak#bookstagram#travel#scotland#lochness#lochnessmonster#reading#unitedbookstagram#bookishtravels#travellingbibliophile#thebooklovingpharmacist#bibliophile#bookporn#uk#readersofinstagram#booksofinstagram#bookblogger#travelphotography#bookphotography
I do not miss childhood, but I miss the way I took pleasure in small things, even as greater things crumbled. I could not control the world I was in, could not walk away from things or people or moments that hurt, but I took joy in the things that made me happy. -Neil Gaiman, The Ocean at the End of the Lane

I’m currently in New York City for a quick (extended) weekend getaway. I’ve been here for two days and have two more to go. It’s been 5 years since my last visit to NYC, but we picked up where we left off as if no time had passed at all, like two old friends finally meeting up again after years apart. I’m staying in New Jersey (Weehawken) at a friend’s place where my view from bed this morning looked like this. I’ve had the chance to visit several bookstores in Manhattan and hope to spend today exploring Brooklyn. Happy Saturday, everyone ❤️ #bookstagram#travellingbibliophile#havebookwilltravel#bibliophile#travel#newyorkcity#manhattan#sunriseinnewyork#culturetrip#travelgram
