Today, I've decided to talk about how people decide what to read next. Most book bloggers (and people in general!) have a TBR (To Be Read) pile, or even wardrobe *cough* Georgia *cough*
|This is my TBR list as of 4/1/13. I update it, and highlight books|
Personally, I keep note, and a Excel sheet, of my TBR, and delete the row of information when I've read it. I keep note of the urgency, too.
It's not that simple, of course. I might not feel like one of my review books, or I'll buy or borrow a book I just have to read right then.
So how do I choose which book to read? Personally, I kind of look at the books I have to read, and choose two or three I will read at once. One will be an eBook (for review), one for review and probably one library/own book. This is because I can only have my tablet for about an hour a day to read eBooks, and it gives me some to switch around with, but not too many that I forget about them!
I try to read my review books first, of course, but sometimes you're just not in the mood for that book. SO. Instead of reading it out of the mood, and reviewing in badly because of this, I read what I'm in the mood for.
At the time of writing this (4/1/13), I'm reading three books, a review eBook, a buddy read library book (Buddy reads are GREAT for the TBR, because you only have to read 5 or so chapters a day... This means you can be reading another couple of books and because in buddy reads you have discussions, you'll review better!) and one of my own books.
I was going to read a read a physical review book, but honestly, I'm not in the mood for them at the moment!
