Book Shelf Trauma

Standard

I am sitting here, on my couch, staring at my shelves, split half and half, unread, arranged by genre and author last name, and read, again split by genre and author last name. One thought keeps going through my head, around and around.

What to read?

What to read? What do you want to read? WHAT TO READ? Whattoreadwhattoreadwhattoread.

I call this book shelf trauma. It’s not just a curse caused by my physical shelves, but also my digital shelves.

So perhaps you could help me out a little bit. Below the cut are a couple of screenshots of my digital shelves. How about you let me know what I should read, and subsequently review, next?

To be read…or not to be

Standard

My to be read list is more than eighty titles long. I know, I’ve heard all the jokes. I have more books than time. I am an addict. I might need some sort of twelve step program.

The solution came in a post I saw on Book Riot over a year ago, and so I’ve kept up with this little project, and re-did it this year. The to be read jar/box/container/country/island.

I simply took note of the books I need to read, and own, those on my shelves, virtual or otherwise, wrote the titles down on paper in fun colours, found a box and voila. To be read, whenever I can’t make a decision on what I want to read next.
