3/22/2022 How do you choose what to read next?





I used to have a crazy system with new books that had to be read NOW, and so forth. Now when I review mostly audio I play it cool. I put them in my calendar, and then I move things around if one of them looks better or I want to shift genre.




And since I review almost no ebooks, then the print I borrow or own, well I read whatever looks good. I like this system. I choose what to read, the book does not choose for me.



I both have a system, and I wing it :)

  1. LOL that's a good question. If I have books to read from publishers I do that and otherwise I stand in front of my TBE pile and I can wait for 20 minutes because I dont know what to pick

    1. Sometimes when I have to pick my own books I do think long

  2. I used to be more systematic myself...but lately (esp with the wedding around the corner) I have not taken many new ones or requests. I've been playing it by ear/feels.

  3. I love your system! It's nice that you can do both review and mood books. I find myself lost if I don't make a list to go off of.

    1. Before it was harder, but these days I only have audio to review so when I can't do audio, those are for me

  4. I'm all winging it now. I did do the arc schedule back when I was taking review books.

  5. Sounds really good, I do something fairly similar, occasionally a review book I need to schedule but can move them around a bit too according to mood.

  6. I mostly read whatever looks good unless I have a review deadline.

  7. Reading is definitely more relaxing and fun that way. I schedule some, but leave room for whatever takes my fancy, too.

  8. Sometimes depends on what books I got for review, but mostly just mood!

  9. I try to make a monthly tbr but leave some room for mood reading.

  10. Sounds like you and I have a similar method! I do buddy reads and such, but that's all based on what I want to read. And audiobook reviews are the only review books I really accept anymore, with a few exceptions.
