Classics to the Rescue!

I think I've found the cure for readers' block - reading (or in this case rereading) a classic. Okay the herbal tisane and candle didn't do the trick last night so I grabbed my ereader and pondered my choices. It was down to Jane Eyre or The Secret Garden and The Secret Garden won. I became so engrossed in the story that I read for several hours before I simply couldn't read any longer. I'll need to try this cure again if the readers' block returns, but there's nothing like classic literature to get me out of a slump. If only I'd thought about that sooner perhaps I wouldn't have become such a basket case worrying about the problem.
