Here’s my first ‘tag’ post! I didn’t know about tags when I first started blogging. They seem like a fun way to get to know other bloggers and also to add more variety to posts. Basically it involves answering a list of questions and then ‘tagging’ other bloggers.
I was tagged for the TBR Book Tag by the brilliant Gerry at The Book Nook – I recommend her blog, the posts are well-written and interesting. Gerry is always happy to chat to you in the comments too!
How do you keep track of your TBR list?
Er… I don’t! You’d think that because I’m so organised with keeping records of what I’ve read, that what I’m going to read would be a similar case. But no. It’s either in my head, or in the bookcase.
Is your TBR mostly print or e-book?
Since I got a tablet, I’m happy to read books in both print and e-format. However, I have quite a few printed books waiting right here, while there aren’t many e-books in the queue.
How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next?
Anything borrowed from the library is a priority, usually in the order I reserved / borrowed them. Otherwise, I pick a book that is a different genre / different time period from what I’ve just finished. I can’t read two contemporary thrillers or two classics one after the other, just like I can’t eat the same lunch every day. That probably sounds weird.
A book that has been on your TBR the longest.
Nothing’s been on the list that long. If I reserve or buy a book, it gets read within the year.
A book that you recently added to your TBR.
Everyone’s been talking about Vox by Christina Dalcher, so I’ve reserved the e-library book.
A book on your TBR list strictly because of its beautiful cover.
Not applicable – I love attractive book covers but there’s nothing I want to read just because of its cover.
A book on your TBR that you never plan on actually reading.
I plan to read everything, even the unabridged edition of Oliver Twist.
An unpublished book on your TBR that you’re excited for.
I haven’t got an answer to this one, it’s hard enough keeping up with the ones that have already been published!
A book on your TBR that basically everyone has read except you.
The Fault in Our Stars is on my shelf. It’s a signed copy I found in a charity shop. I’ll definitely read within the next few months.
A book on your TBR that everyone recommends you.
I Am I Am I Am by Maggie O’Farrell. I bought it from Waterstones because I heard so many positive things.
A book on your TBR you’re very excited to read.
I bought I Let You Go by Clare Mackintosh from a charity shop the other day, which I’m looking forward to reading because I See You was such a page turner (and a great example of a psychological thriller).
The number of books on your Goodreads TBR shelf.
I’m not on Goodreads. I have no idea of the number of books I want to read – let’s say a million?
Now, back to the reading…
