Take a vacation:
- Remember all those free ebooks you picked up on Amazon or Barnes & Noble? Take your vacation week and read them. Not a fan of ebooks? Then stop by the library and check out your favorite author. In other words, read books that you are have not accepted for review. Discover the joy of reading again.
- Line up guest bloggers for the week. This can add a bit of work in the planning, but if you are good friends with authors ask them to help you out. Give a deadline so that you will have everything you need in time to schedule the posts.
- Set up feature posts. Maybe think of a theme for the week and feature a book each day that fits that theme.
Take a breather:
- Take a break from reading and binge watch your favorite television series.
- If you blog every day maybe try to cut back a day or two week for a while.
- Take on a contributor. I love being able to share the reviewing duties with my two reviewers and with the 5 features writers there are several days a month I don't have to do any more than format. This has been great for staving off burnout.
Sometimes all we need is a little break to renew our passion for book blogging. However, if you find after a break that you quickly become burned out again or you feel no loss during your break, then it might be time to close this chapter in your reading journey, and there is nothing wrong with that.
