To Be Read List

Happy Monday, Readers!

photo (3)Many people start the new year making resolutions. Yes, I am a resolution maker and breaker. I have made a few resolutions but one I know I will keep is reading at least half of my To Read books on my Kindle.  In the upper left it tells me I have 72 To Read–72! Collecting books is an addiction. How can you pass up the freebies or discounted books? I am going to try really hard to not buy anymore books for a few months. <—- Yeah, that’s clearly not going to happen. Though, it was a nice thought for about about 15 seconds. Do any of you have a growing to be read list? How do you tackle them?

  1. I’m never caught up, but that’s okay. Little by little. My big thing is I like to read series IN ORDER. But I’m now 5 books behind on Grace Burrowes’ Lonely Lords series…I have too many unread ebooks on my Nook–that the library doesn’t own– but I don’t buy paper books anymore as I am a librarian and can get all the books I need there.

    • I like the strategy little by little. I’m with you, I don’t like to read book in a series out of order. I’ve done it just a few times and I found I didn’t enjoy the book as much as I would have if I would have read the books before it. There’s a reason why it’s a series, right?

      Oh my goodness, being a librarian would be so hard. I would want to read all day. 🙂

  2. I’m going for quality not quantity. I can always tell if a book will hold my interest within the first few pages, so I will look at that on Amazon. If I like it then I’ll buy it. Otherwise, it will have to wait. there are so many of my favorite authors coming out with new books soon-Lorraine Heath, Sarah MacLean’s finale book to her Scoundrel’s series, Tessa Dare, etc, that I can’t wait to dive into those!

    • I like your thinking, Nancy. Quality is so important. I’m with you there. I think that’s what I’m going to do is read the books I have been waiting to read and if I have time to read others, I will. 🙂

  3. I’m with Nancy here. Last year I grabbed too many books only to be disappointed. They clog my Kindle and I lose the great books I really want to read in the mess. I even stopped reading for a bit! I’m going to take more time before I purchase this year and read the samples, reviews and also likes…Then choose the book I really want. I too love a series and like starting at book #1. I’ve just finished JR Wards BDB series – 11 books in a row since Xmas. Now back to some fabulous historical romances…

    • Bronwen- I want to start the JR Wards BDB series but it’s going to wait until I’ve read some of these other books I been dying to read. Like, Nancy said too, I think it’s a great idea to read the samples. I might even say money too! 🙂

  4. LOL 72 isn’t so bad. Well not as bad as what I have on my TBR list!! Lets just say your 72 is the amount in paperback books I need to get to and over 100 ebooks on my Kindle and PDFs….. You will do much better than I will this year, I believe. 🙂

    • Oh Ki!! That is a lot of books. Wowza! It would be a full-time job reading all of those books. Where do you store all those paperbacks?
      My goal is to get the list down. 🙂 You’ll get yours down too but I bet it will grow a lot in the coming year. 🙂

  5. I have a to-read bookshelf on Goodreads which is telling me that I have a total of 242 books to read at present. I’m trying to restrict my purchases this year to my auto-buy authors only. I agree with Bronwen. With so many books, I tend to lose track of all those I really want to read. There are a number of series I have started to read but then they have fallen by the wayside when newer books come along. So, hopefully, I’m going to try to catch up with these series this year.
