The Reader’s Problems Book Tag ~

Hello Peoples. WOW! August is almost gone. I think it galloped by! I found this book tag at Millay’s Musings. You can find her blog at the link below ~

I like book tags, I do. So, I thought I would give this tag the old heave ho! Prepare yourself for fresh insight and wisdom! *haha*

Millay’s Musings found this tag at Paper Procrastinators.

1.) You have 20,000 books on your TBR. How in the world do you decide what to read next?

20,000??? Hyperbole! Embellishment! Exaggeration! This question really makes me laugh. I’m, for the most part, a mood reader. I read what I’m in the mood for. I love the classics, so I tend to read a contemporary writer and then a classic writer. I go back and forth like that.

2.) You’re halfway through a book and you’re just not loving it. Do you quit or are you committed?

I’m committed. Usually what I do is quite simple. I put the book down and read another book, then I pick up the book I’m not loving and continue reading it. I take breaks. A few months ago, I read a book where the female protagonist was just not likable. I took breaks and I was able to finish the book.

3.) The end of the year is coming, and you are so close, but so far away on your goodreads reading challenge. Do you try to catch up and how?

This has never happened to me, but no, I would not try to catch up. I would continue reading at the pace I’ve been reading.

4.) The covers of a series you love do. not. match. How do you cope?

LOL! It doesn’t make any difference to me. It’s fine if the covers don’t match.

5.) Everyone and their mother loves a book you really don’t like. Who do you bond with over shared feelings?

No one. I would keep quiet.

6.) You’re reading a book and you are about to start crying in public. How do you deal?

I’m more the laugh out loud in public type, however, crying has happened. I would discreetly blow my nose, glance around and continue reading.

7.) A sequel of a book you love just came out, but you’ve forgotten a lot from the prior novel. Will you re-read the book? Skip the sequel? Try to find a synopsis on goodreads? Cry in frustration?

I would re-read the book. πŸ“š

8.) You do not want anyone. ANYONE. Borrowing your books. How do you politely tell people nope when they ask?

I have no idea. I loan books out on occasion. I exchange books with a friend frequently. All my books have come back to me, with the exception of two.

9.) Reading ADD. You pick up and put down five books in the last month. How do you get over your reading slump?

I keep myself busy with other activities.

10.) There are so many new books coming out that you are dying to read! How many do you actually buy?

One at a time as I can read them.

11.) After you’ve bought the new books you can’t wait to get, how long do they sit on your shelf before you get to them?

Anywhere from two days to two weeks.

Happy Reading! If you would like to participate in this tag, feel free to do so.

Much love ~

  1. That was a lot of fun! I am a mood reader too and also tend to do what you mentioned – read a modern author and then a classic or older author. You are very wise to only buy your books one at a time as you can read them.

  2. As for the first question, well… 20,000 is hyperbole. But I’ve been telling people that if they can’t decide what book to read, they should put the names of the books on pieces of paper, fold them up, and put them into a glass jar. Then mix them up and pull one at random, and that’s your next read! After that… repeat until the jar is empty! (Which it might never be, if you keep adding more slips of paper into the jar…)
