There are those times when you fall madly in love with a book and then, just like that, it’s over. You’re left wondering how you’ll go on.
Your heart longs for the time the two of you spent together. It was beautiful. You felt complete. You ache to find another book that did everything for you this last book did.
So you go to an online book dating site, like Amazon, desperate to find a replacement.
You hastily latch on to the first one that even remotely appeals to you, hoping beyond all hope it’ll be a suitable replacement.
Yet, those rebound reading relationships can leave you unfulfilled and disappointed. You may even find yourself weeping bitterly—especially when that new book pales in comparison, leaving you longing once again for your ex-book.
Just remember, you don’t need to instantly jump in between the pages of another book. Take time for yourself to realize you don’t need a book in your life to make you feel whole.
But then again, maybe you do… 😉
