うさ-p: It got all pruny in the brain water.
I decided not to do a hard goal this year for my reading challenge to recharge after doing so well last year, so, as I expected, without a fire lit under my butt I have read only 3 books so far this month. This is not a very good start to my non-goal. Alas.|
And even though I own thousands of books (no, really, thousands) sometimes I just don't know what I want to read. I am a moody reader and have to be in the right state of mind for any book at a given time. It's so bad that I can't say, "these are the next three books I will read" because I won't. I can't even say, "I will read this book next," because when I wake up in the morning I'll just change my mind.
What does work, though, is someone TELLING me to read something. So someone, please, throw a mental dart at my TBR dart board to narrow down a genre for me. I can probably take it from there, but if not I'll choose 3-5 and have you pick. This has worked for me before when I have reader's block.
Behold, the TBR Dartboard: *oooooo*
*Note this is not a mathematical representation of my library which in reality is more like 95% pink and 40% white (due to crossover). I purposely enlarged the smaller groups as incentive to get me to read them.
