We're picking up where we left off last week in our discussion about reading slumps.

Autumn has more nonfiction that helped her through her slump. The appropriately titled Burnout is just one of the books she read about the fight or flight response our bodies go through when dealing with stress, which includes flashbacks and PTSD. Miranda couldn't bring herself to read anything light and/or fluffy during this time, and has even dived into some Booker Books, which are serious books and usually Chris' territory.
