We’ve all been there…staring blankly at the bookcase or e-reader seeing titles but not being drawn to any particular book. Do you go with the next book that’s releasing? The book you’ve had the longest? Do you spin around twice, close your eyes and point?
I have a method I use and wondered if anyone else does this too?
I grab about 5 books- sometimes for review books I’ll grab the books releasing soonest or I’ll even base it on which covers are prettiest. Then I’ll sit down with all 5 books and read one chapter from each. Most of the time at least one book will be harder to put down than the rest so I choose to read that one.
There have been times where none of the books really hit me-and this is usually meaning I’m in a slump or not in a reading mood. In this case- proceed to Netflix. Other times I’ll be unable to put down multiple books so I decide to read a few chapters each prior to bed.
