TGIF is hosted by Ginger at G Reads. This week we’re discussing how I decide what to read next.
Oh I’d love to tell you I have this wonderfully organized system, where everything just perfectly falls into place—but no. I basically have a stack of books on my nightstand. They can be books I’ve purchased, books loaned to me by friends or taken from the library, and books from publishers. I try to read borrowed books first and then books from publishers, depending on the due date of the borrowed book and the publication date of the ARC, but there’s not really a science to it. This is why the books I purchase take FOREVER to get read, no matter how long I’ve owned them. Also, this is why I haven’t read so many books I claim to be gagging for (like, hello, Insurgent. I’m on the waiting list for the library, but with about 15 books on my table right now, I have no business buying it).
Sometimes I think I have it all worked out. Then I take my kids to the library and come home with five books I’ve suddenly decided I’m dying to read. That throws everything off too.
Oh well! Happy Friday to you!
PS. For those of you who don’t know, Ginger at G Reads is putting TGIF on hiatus for a while. While I won’t be doing TGIF, I’ll try to think of something fun to do. Maybe I’ll read the books on my night stand? Ha ha.
