The Yays and Yucks of Reading Slumps: A Discussion

Being a voracious reader has always been the core of my personality. Being able to pick up one book after another after another and immediately get lost in the different worlds, cultures, characters’ plights and more has a spectacular element of joy that is extremely difficult to describe with mere words alone.

That is until recently.
