Here’s the thing . . .
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?
