BAsPC: Book Hangover Definition

BA's Posting Challenge 2013-14Welcome to BA’s Posting Challenge for book bloggers! In an effort to consistently create content on BA I thought I would take part in a 30 day blogging challenge (I have to mix it up or else I get bored), but realised I don’t want to, nor do I have the time, to create a post every single day. Instead I decided to attempt to create a post once a week with content other than a review.

This is how BA’s Posting Challenge began.

Now BA’s Posting Challenge has become an annual event spanning the year’s busiest time. November for Wrimos everywhere, December for the holiday season, January for New Year’s and recovery, February for the lovers, and March to finally wind down after all the craziness.

BA’s Posting Challenge is for those book bloggers who want content and can’t think of anything to post, want a break without their blog dying, and just want to join in somewhere with the blogosphere community. This  challenge has a focus on books, book blogs, and personal topics scattered throughout. Find all the topics here.

Book Hangover Definition: Book Hangovers can and do happen! What are your symptoms of a mad book hangover, and how do you cope with them?

I always forget there’s such a think as a book hangover. It sounds so odd, but when you think about it, it makes sense. We invest so much mental power and our emotions into the stories we love reading, is it any wonder we’re exhausted afterwards?

I’ve had headaches, been really tired, been physically drained, become depressed (short-term), and just felt like crap after I’ve finished reading certain books. If I spend enough time reading, during the day, I find myself wondering why I’m so fatigued and foggy of mind. I forget so I question what’s wrong with me and then I finally figure it out.

I haven’t quite figured out a way to cope with the good old book hangover. Sometimes I’ll jump straight into another book in order to escape reality, other times I’ll mope and halfheartedly begin a new book without ever getting into it, or finishing it, but I think most of the time I just carry on with my life.

Once I finish a book I catch up on what I need to do, I think I spend more time taking care of more labour-intensive chores and tasks than an activity where I have to sit on my butt. I’ve exercised my brain, I need to wake up and exercise my body.
