Musing Mondays (Dec 8)


How long do you wait after finishing a book before you pick/start another one? How many books do you have planned ahead or do you pick up random books from your tbr pile (if you have one)? Do you review right away or keep reading and come back to it later?



Please leave a comment with the link to either your own Musing Mondays post, or share your answer here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks!




I'm a bit of a lazy reviewer, no matter how much I promise myself that I won't let it be, my tbr(eviwed) pile is often bigger than my tbr(ead) pile.

Once I've finished whatever I've read, it goes into my reviewing pile and I usually pick a new one right away. I used to just pick randomly from the little stock pile of new books I've built up (which explains the 'book buying ban' I'm currently on) but now that I spend more time at the library, and have my shiny new gold membership, I usually pick up whatever is on the top in my library bag.


I wouldn't say that I necessarily 'plan' ahead, though I do have a rough idea of a couple books that I want to read. I mean, right now, the next few books I want to read are Little Women (my Christmas book), Middlesex by Eugenides (book club), and Gaiman's American Gods and Anansi Boys (currently glaring at me from my bookshelf).

Hi Rebecca! My post is up!

I understand having books feel like they're glaring at you from the bookshelves as I own tons of unread (unpicked) books myself. It's a funny feeling but still :)
