Musing Mondays: Book Slump: It Can't Happen Here
If you saw my house, you would see that a Book Slump could never happen here. (The photo above shows a stack I haven't quite fit into my six shelves.)
I have six bookshelves where I've squirreled away TBR and books I've loved just in case of such a terrible book event.
I have big, thick wonderfully browsable books that are fun to wander through whenever I've just finished a tough read.
I have light travel narratives to work in after a thoughtful novel.
I have lots of 32-page picture books to read aloud slowly if I can't find time for a nice big nonfiction book.
I have easy access to three library systems, including the enormous Houston Public Library and the Harris County Library. I can request and request and request. That gives me lots of possibilities.
My TBR and my library cards have me fully immunized against the dread Book Slump.
