I don’t really have a “someday” pile. When I started blogging, I had a kindle that I kept meticulously organized. I had my favorite books that I’d already read divided into a dozen(ish) collections, and I had books I was definitely planning on reading at some point in “unread” versions of those collections. Then I had several more besides. I had so many books, divided up so specifically, that the idea of trying to reorganize it based on reading-for-review made my head want to explode.
So I got a new kindle. Yes, I’m serious. Don’t judge.
Then, despite Carmel’s warning . . . I went a little ARC-request crazy. Between that and my OCD about having to review earlier installments before the new ones means that, NO, I absolutely do not get around to reading my “someday” pile.
While I may make mistakes, I also learn from them, so hopefully this is a temporary situation. That’s the goal anyway. And then, also hopefully, I’ll have a chance to read something from my someday pile.
Then again . . . I’m kind of a superlative person (*snorts*), so I either have a burning desire to read ALL THE BOOKS, and read them NOW, or . . . or I’m pretty meh about it.
Where most people would have books that qualify as “someday,” I just have books that I really, really want to read, or books that I probably won’t read, but I got them for cheap (or FREE), so I haven’t totally negated the possibility, but yeah, probably not going to happen. And yes, there are degrees of MUST read, but that degree varies day-to-day, based on my mood. My mood is really what governs what I read. I’m kind of difficult in that regard . . . basically . . .
What about you?
Do You Actually Get Around To Reading Your “Someday” Pile?
My name is Jessica and I live in Chattanooga, Tennessee. I’m trying my hand at writing, but mostly I read. My favorite genres are Fantasy, Paranormal Romance, Science Fiction, Urban Fantasy, and the YA versions of those genres, but if there is a book of a different color getting lots of buzz, I’ll read it too, just to be informed. If I’m not reading or writing, I’m probably on Goodreads or Pinterest or baking blueberry pies because I love them.
