Musing Mondays (1 of 4)



Hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading
Todays Musing:
  What book tops your TBR (to be read) pile right now? Is it something you own, or something you have to borrow, or something you’ll be purchasing? Why do you want to read it so badly?

My Response:
  The top of my TBR Review Pile, and waiting to be picked up, is The Nobodies Album by Carolyn Parkhurst.  I have read some really good reviews and even had a giveaway, so can't wait to get my hands on it.
  When I went "public" with my blog, I really thought requests for reviews would be far and few between, but was wrong.  I haven't read a book from my Personal TBR Bucket Pile since January.  My "Review Policy" is that I read requested review books in order that I receive.  So the day they get delivered, a post-it goes on the front of the book, with date received and from who and any other notes regarding that book, example if there is a giveaway, guest author posting, etc etc.  Every book in my TBR Review pile, I am anxious to read because either I asked to read it or when an email was sent asking if I would review, I read the synopsis to see if I think I would enjoy and be a good "match".  My pile is high but am looking forward to reading each and every one of them.  Happy Reading all!!!

Looked this up at Amazon, sounds really good. I'll be adding this to my already falling over TBR pile. Have a great day!

Just Books

that TBR pile can get out of hand..
And picking one from it can get complicated. yes, sometimes it is an ARC that I need to read and review, but sometimes it is just something i really wat to read...right now.

I have a ton of books just waiting to be read - some for book tours/reviews and some ones that I picked up because they look so good. I always have such a hard time choosing what to read next, and always look at my calendar of scheduled posts to see if I can sneak one of my own books in before reading my next review book.

Here's my answer.

I'm like Lori, a 'mood' reader! Plus I don't have an organized TBR pile - it's a book shelf, really.I haven't heard of the 'Nobodies Album'. I'll have to look into it.

I have a TBR list plus all the books I have purchased on it. Of course as soon as I purchase them, or find them in the library I can mark them off my list. Each time I visit a book store I try to find at least one on the list, and if they are on the table of sale books I will buy two or three. However, it seems like the TBR list is growing faster than I am buying, and so it goes.

This year I cut down on the number of books I accepted for review in order to read more from my personal reading list. It has worked out great and I think I will continue it next year.

Next on my list are old reads I'm reading just for the pleassure of it: Susan Warner's "The Wideworld" and Hawthorne's "The Marble Faun" because I like the way they get me to feel. I don't do reviews - I leave that to the master CMash. Smiles.
