Do you re-arrange and move books around on the shelves or move books off of your bookshelves to another area after a certain amount of time or do you just leave them the way they are?
I move my books all the time. No placement will satisfy me more than a few weeks. I get a book high when I rediscover books I haven’t read but want to read. Usually I have a bookcase for (some) of my series and another for #booksfortrade and ARCs to review. On that bookcase I also have books on my TBR.
Right now I can’t figure out how to sort the books because I have too many I should rid of. Those books I know I should #booksfortrade but I just cannot part with them. They are being wasted, though, sitting on my bookshelves, and I know that they’ll never be read unless I do something about t hat. They should have wonderful new homes. Rearranging a bit more will hopefully get me to pass those on.
Books you should read if you liked… Thank you to The Broke and Bookish for creating this awesome “Top Ten Tuesday” meme. It is by far my favorite weekly book meme. I’m going to (gently) throw some spectacular books that … Continue reading →
I have been bombarded with books. Netgalley has been chucking them my way, so frequently that I’m not able to keep up reading all of them, much less write reviews of each of them. Sometimes–well, quite often–it’s fun to read … Continue reading →
TL;DR? Lots of new ebooks, most of which are New Age/spirituality books by various publishers. Also: reading. A bunch and bunch of reading to be done. You saw that correctly, all the reads are mine this week! I suppose they … Continue reading →
What is it about stories that you love? Is it the stories themselves? The people? The plot twists?
What do I love about stories? Uh, everything. You can’t have a story without plot and characters and people driven toward some outcome. If I don’t like a character, I probably wouldn’t put down the book just for that, though if the plot isn’t interesting, that’s where I draw the line. I can deal with an asshole/weak character if there’s a strong plot like a dystopia world, that’s usually interesting enough that I can survive the book while hating the character.
I realized something the other day. There are a hell of a lot of books out there and not all of them have enough people reading them. I like reading and I like writing. What better way to get the word out there for them but by writing about them? I’ve never written a blog before and, consequentially, never had any readers. I welcome your comments and suggestions. Let me know what you’d like to see and I’ll do my best to give it to you. If you have any books you’d like to hear about or that you think should be included in any list or blog entry, let me know. If I havent read it, I will. And if I have, I’ll add it for you.
