Book Tag: Reader’s Problems

Saw this tag on TinyObsession’s blog, and wanted to do it.

1. YOU HAVE 20,000 BOOKS ON YOUR TBR. HOW IN THE WORLD DO YOU DECIDE WHAT TO READ NEXT?

Random grabs, which often lead to…


2. YOU’RE HALFWAY THROUGH A BOOK AND YOU’RE JUST NOT LOVING IT. DO YOU QUIT OR ARE YOU COMMITTED?

(theoretically its that easy. In reality I agonize over it until I decide I absolutely can’t do finish it. “There’s too many good books to waste time on a bad one. There’s too many good books to waste time on a bad one. There’s too many good books to waste time on a bad one…”

3. THE END OF THE YEAR IS COMING AND YOU’RE SO CLOSE, BUT SO FAR AWAY ON YOUR GOODREADS READING CHALLENGE. DO YOU TRY TO CATCH UP AND HOW?

I. SHALL. NOT. FAIL!!!!!! Or…


4. THE COVERS OF A SERIES YOU LOVE DO. NOT. MATCH. HOW DO YOU COPE?

As long as the story is good… Who gives a flyin’ squirrel about the covers?

5. EVERYONE AND THEIR MOTHER LOVES A BOOK YOU REALLY DON’T LIKE. WHO DO YOU BOND WITH OVER SHARED FEELINGS?

No one! I know I am right and they are wrong!!

6. YOU’RE READING A BOOK AND YOU ARE ABOUT TO START CRYING IN PUBLIC. HOW DO YOU DEAL?

You can’t see me, I’m not here. You can’t see me, I’m not here.

7. A SEQUEL OF A BOOK YOU LOVED JUST CAME OUT, BUT YOU’VE FORGOTTEN A LOT FROM THE PRIOR NOVEL. WILL YOU RE-READ THE BOOK? SKIP THE SEQUEL? TRY TO FIND A SYNOPSIS ON GOODREADS?

I can’t remember the last time a sequel came out to a book and I didn’t remember the previous book well enough to just keep going straight into the new book.

(or, you know, I’m so behind the times on series that generally the whole series is nearly complete before I read the first book, so I never have long to wait for the next one.)

8. YOU DO NOT WANT ANYONE. ANYONE. BORROWING YOUR BOOKS. HOW DO YOU POLITELY TELL PEOPLE NOPE WHEN THEY ASK?

Hell No.

9. YOU’VE PICKED UP AND PUT DOWN 5 BOOKS IN THE LAST MONTH. HOW DO YOU GET OVER YOUR READING SLUMP?

I read my favorite Harry Potter fanfiction, of course! (Sadly, I’m completely serious. Works every time.)

10. THERE ARE SO MANY NEW BOOKS COMING OUT THAT YOU’RE DYING TO READ! HOW MANY DO YOU ACTUALLY BUY?

Yes, that’s right. I have a limit of two books, and that is SERIOUSLY stretching it on a brand new book.

11. AFTER YOU’VE BOUGHT THE NEW BOOKS YOU CAN’T WAIT TO GET TO, HOW LONG DO THEY SIT ON YOUR SHELF BEFORE YOU GET TO THEM?

You …mean…. you don’t drop everything and read the book immediately? WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE?? …actually, generally less than 2 days. Insomnia, FTW!
