I'm with Normblog over the Reader's Block dilemma, in that it's a non-dilemma. All that is required is a calm and measured approach, contain the anxiety and follow your instinct.
I'd quite have expected writing dovegreyreader to give me frequent and recurring bouts of reader's block and I'll admit sometimes I used to think it had happened but Norm's explained it all now.
An occasional moment when no book I picked up seemed quite right, but I think I've developed something of an immunity. I have that many reading projects lined up, disparate books happily paired, tripleted or even octupleted up for future reading trails I can't imagine ever running out of ideas about where to go next.
I'll pick up and run with Norm's meme and list a selection of my own dozen
