Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about books on your top book lists…
This past week, Borders re-released it’s 100 Favourite Books of All Times. Do you vote in these kinds of polls when they arise? Do you look through the list, or seek out books featured?
PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Musing Mondays post, or share your opinion in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks.
As I’m sure Wendy will attest, I am a huge sucker for a good list, so when you combine lists WITH books – what more could you want? I do vote/suggest titles when polls like these arise – I always try to contribute my vote to those put out by Borders and Dymocks.
I pick up a catalogue every year when Dymocks does it’s Books Alive feature, and when Angus and Robertson does it’s top books lists, and I take great pleasure in checking out what’s been changed from last year, or what books have risen or fallen on the charts. (Yes, I keep the lists on my bookshelf, and yes, I’m aware that’s somewhat sad)
I wouldn’t say that I intentionally go out and try to find the books to read – I always have plenty to read anyways, but I do recheck the old lists when the new one comes out and mark off any that I’ve read in the intervening months.
