If you've fallen off the wagon and now find yourself looking for a way to jumpstart your reading list, a luxury book subscription service may be just what you need. With a subscription service like The Book Resort, you'll have access to a wide variety of books (not to mention gifts if you so choose), delivered right to your door on a monthly basis.

A book subscription service is the perfect way to explore new authors and genres, or rediscover old favourites. With a variety of titles to choose from, such as romance, Irish author, and thriller, you're sure to find something that piques your interest. 

Can't you picture it now?... no more going to the bookstore, trawling through lots of shelves trying to decide what to read next. No more scrolling through Amazon for hours trying to find something that looks interesting and no more reading endless reviews (although we have some amazing one's here). Instead, you'll get a bespoke gift box delivered to your door with some amazing Irish gifts and most importantly.. a brand new book (or two if you wish!).

Stuck in a Reading Slump?

Although we may be a little biased, we highly recommend signing up for a book subscription service if you're looking for an easy way to get back into reading. Not only will you have a new book delivered to you every month, but you'll also have the motivation of knowing that you're paying for the service and should really be reading the books!

If you're in a reading slump, it can be tough to motivate yourself to pick up a book. However, there are a few simple tricks that can help you get back into reading. First, try to find a book that genuinely interests you. Whether it's a gripping thriller or a heartwarming romance, choose a story that will keep you turning the pages and have a heg in your heart when the end is nigh.

Additionally, make reading a priority in your life by setting aside some time each day to read. Even if you can only spare 15 minutes, reading for even a short amount of time can help you jumpstart your reading habit. We have even more tips on achieving reading goals here!

Finally, don't be afraid to ask for recommendations from friends or family members. Sometimes, all it takes is hearing about an amazing book to get you excited about reading again. With these tips in mind, getting back into reading is easy and enjoyable.

Tips for Getting Out of a Reading Slump

  1. Read something that you're genuinely interested in. If you're reading for school or work, try to find something on the side that you can read for fun. This will help you get back into the swing of things more easily.
  2. Start with a short book. If you're feeling intimidated by a huge tome, start with something shorter. You'll be able to power through it quickly and it will give you a confidence boost. Short stories are also an option. If you haven't read The Midnight Library yet, you should!
  3. Take some time for yourself. A reading slump can often be caused by stress or burnout. If you've been going nonstop, take some time for yourself and relax with a good book... in the bath with some fragrant bath salts... and maybe some delicious Irish chocolate. Remember, you deserve it.

Bearing these tips in mind, a book subscription makes a great gift for any occasion, particularly if that person is experiencing the above blockers! You can thank us when you see the look on their face post-gift receiving.

How About Joining a Book Club?

If you are still finding yourself stuck in a bit of a reading rut even after trying to implement these tips, you're not alone. According to a recent study, 43% of Americans say they haven't read a book in the past year. The summer months in particular can be a difficult time to set aside some reading time as the days get brighter and the sun comes out.

If that's the case for you, joining a book club may be the answer. Book clubs provide an opportunity to explore new genres, meet other book lovers, and get recommendations for your next great read. They can also help you stay accountable to your reading goals. We know just the one...

Don't Be Too Critical With Yourself

If you're like most book lovers, you have a never-ending list of books that you want to read. However, life often gets in the way and it's easy to fall into a reading rut. Even if you still find yourself not wanting to turn the page or read the next chapter - take a break. After all, we understand that absence makes the heart grow fonder and that's why with us you can pause your subscription at any time - for free!

So, if you're stuck in a reading slump or if you're simply looking for an even easier way to broaden your reading horizons, consider signing up for a book subscription service or joining a book club. We can guarantee that you won't look back!
