This week’s question: How do you decide what books to read?
Answer: It’s surprisingly complicated. First, I look at the synopsis and reviews. If the synopsis is intriguing and the reviews are mostly positive, the book gets written down on my TBR list. Usually it stays on the list for a few months, but some books have been on there for years. It’s a big list. I think there are about 140 books on there right now.
Next, when it’s time for me to buy more books (approximately once a month), I go through the list and remove the books that no longer appeal to me. Then I go comparison shopping. I check a bunch of different websites and stores to see if I can find cheap copies of my list books. If I can find a list book on sale or used, I buy it. I usually also buy a few full-priced books that I really want to read. If school is forcing me to read something, I have to get that, too.
Once I have the physical books, they go on my TBR shelf. There’s no method to how I read books from the shelf. I just grab one whenever I want.
So, that’s my process of deciding what to read.
