Up Close and (un)Conventional Bookish Babble
Welcome to our first Up Close and (un)Conventional Bookish Babble. As we each had done similar discussion posts, we merged the names and, voila! This is where we discuss whatever we feel like. It can be something about books or the bookish community, or it can be about something else entirely!
Hey y’all! This post was sparked when I had a dilemma last week. I had finished a book and needed to choose my next read. Sound familiar so far? 😉 So I looked at my list of ARCs and nothing really tripped my trigger. (I am nothing if not a mood reader 😛 ) Then I looked at my list of authors to read before RAREParis. But I couldn’t decide. Then I looked at my library of ebooks on my Nook. Then on my other Nook. And then I looked at those on my Kindle. OMIGOSH, y’all!! The sheer number of choices I have is overwhelming. And paralyzing. I love having a choice. However, on my 3 ereaders I probably have a total of about 7000 books! What’s that expression about too much of a good thing?!? (I believe I’ve mentioned I’m a one-click addict… 😉 )
Do y’all have this problem? Too many books to choose from? No wonder I can’t keep up! I ended up choosing a book from my ARC list – because that list is *much* smaller. 😉 But I was wondering… How do y’all go about picking your next read? Do you like having LOTS of choices? Or do you keep your libraries manageable in size? Are you a mood reader, too? How do y’all do it? I really want to know! 😉
