Question for Monday June 4th:
Balance, what is that? Once upon a time I had balance. I used to not buy any books. Or at least the books I bought were already tried and loved. I would just cruise the library shelves and pick what suited my fancy. All my reading was based on my own desires and whim. Then one year after Christmas I had this crazy idea to start blogging about the books I read. At first it didn't affect the books I choose to read. With time bit by bit I began reading less by whim and more by schedule. How do I choose what to read next? I am in a survival state when it comes to reading. My shelves are too full of books that need to be read and my review pile is rather full. I am just trying to keep from getting crushed by all the books.
Here is what determines what I read next:
Release Date (ARCs - I really do try to read them before release)
Due Date (Good ol'Library)
Event Date (Author signings, blog challenges, and book club)Sequel Release Date
If by some miracle I don't have anything that fits into those categories I will pick based on either:
Oldest Book on the Pile
All my efforts to get out of survival mode are making some dents in the pile. I am taking less review books and trying to clean off the shelves. Since I am not getting any ARCs I should be seeing drastic improvements very soon. I will soon be back to mostly reading by whim with a sprinkling of review books.
Anyway, thanks for the topic.
