A reading slump is a reader’s worst nightmare (figuratively) and a period of time in which no book seems to hold their attention. They can’t seem to be able to focus on any book. They don’t seem to find any book interesting and move from book to book trying to find that one book that will break this traffic jam of sorts. In this period, giving up on a book happens every other day – if one has picked up a book, that is. This can be annoying because the reader might want to read a lot, to get through their TBR, but their brain is constantly going, “SLUMP SLUMP SLUMP!”
My journey with audiobooks started in 2018 when I listened to Elizabeth Acevedo’s The Poet X on Storytel India. There has been no looking back since, for audiobooks have become such an important part of my life that I cannot imagine not listening to audiobooks, in whatever capacity that might be. So I thought I’d share some tips on how to get started with audiobooks, so that you can also reap the benefits of consuming stories in a way that helps you in ways that you would never think it would.
