How Do I Choose What to Read Next?!
How do I choose my next read? Please help, cause I really don’t know.
I’ve really only entered the Book Blogosphere a short while ago. I still don’t read nearly as many books as some of the bloggers I look up to (I still need to devote some time to writing) but my reading time has definitely increased.
Part of that is to have more interesting things to post about, but mostly it’s because of all this bookish exposure to new and exciting reads. That being said, my TBR (‘to be read list’ for those who aren’t obsessed) has grown out of control. It used to sit at around a dozen books at any given time. Now it’s just under a hundred!
A lot of you with TBRs much bigger than that are asking me, ‘What’s the problem?’ You want to know what the problem is? I’ll tell you! I HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO CHOOSE ONE BOOK FROM A LIST THAT BIG!
Is there some kind of dance I should be doing until a sign appears? Do I write the titles of all the books on
Do I write the titles of all the books on chi chi fortune sticks and shake them in a cup until 1 falls out?
Do I blindfold myself, spin around a room and read the first book I happen to put my hand on?
Should I line all my books up and call to them, waiting for the first one to come to me?
All joking aside, how do you pick the next thing you’re going to read?
