Musing Monday #10







Musing Mondays is a weekly feature hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.  Each week MizB asks a book related question and we have to give our answers.

This week’s musing asks…



 When you’re stuck for a book to read next, what do you do?

I had to chuckle to myself when I read this weeks question.  I am never stuck for a book to read next, not with over 2,000 books on my bookcases; that figure doesn't even include my kindle books either.  I have two bookcases at home filled with books of many genres and also I have three bookcases at my Mum's house -that is what I call my overflow library.  It's more a case of wanting to read so many books at one time and only having one pair of eyes to do it.  I also have some lovely friends who like to give me books every time I see them :D  They normally come highly recommended, so they get bumped up the tbr pile.

At the moment I have a little rule where I read two review books  and then choose one book that is a non review book.  It seems to be working fine with me.  I always have two books on the go - one physical book and one book on the kindle.  So generally I swap between the two books.

I have been known to spend half an hour just wandering between my bookcases trying to choose a non-review book.   

At the end of the day a girl can never have too many books and it also means I never get stuck what to read.

I totally agree! Wow I don't have that many books! I have over a thousand though, combined with ebooks! :) I also generally have 2 books on the go but at the moment I'm trying to limit myself to one book at a time! :)

Amazing collection! It reminds me of my closet: so many clothes, nothing to wear!
