Book Reader Problems Tag

This tag, I found on the blog ‘The Book Nut‘ and thought I’d do it myself and see what my answers are… I absolutely love tags, because I can learn a lot about others and you guys can learn at least something about me too.  Also, this was created by The Nameless Book Blog!


You have 20 000 books in your TBR, how in the world do you decide what to read next?

I’d start by separating them into books I want to read, have to read and cannot be bothered with just yet.  Then make jars and add them into each.  Draw a book when I want to read and read the book I got.

You’re halfway through a book and you’re just not loving it.  Do you put it down or are you committed?

I have only DNF’ed a book twice in my life.  No matter how much I want to, I usually try to power through all books.  Some get better as you keep reading, and others I just never pick up or recommend after reading (this does not happen often).

The end of the year is coming and you’re behind on your reading challenge, do you try to catch up?  And if so, how?

Yes, I will try my absolute best to catch up.  I thrive under pressure and love a challenge.  By just hiding in my house and reading one book after the other, until I’m caught up!

The covers of a series you love do not match, how do you cope?

I, like most book lovers, despise it when covers change halfway through a series, especially when I’ve already got all of the other books!  I will, if it’s a beloved series, be sure to get the complete new collection when the series is done and give away the old covers.

Everyone and their mothers love a book that you do not.  Who do you bond with over your shared feelings?

Oh, my word, this can happen so often to us, but I have made peace with the fact that we cannot all feel the same about every single book.  It is, luckily, easy to find like-minded people with the same view as mine on most books.  Just reach out on Twitter and watch as we debate those books to death…  The reading community is a lovely one!

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

I try my best to hide behind the book and not attract any attention to myself while reading.  If it’s really bad crying, I’d put the book down and go for a walk to calm down, then pick the book up at home.

The sequel to a book you loved just came out but you’ve forgotten a lot of what happened.  Are you going to reread it?


You do not want anyone to borrow your books, how do you politely say no when someone asks?

No, I’m extremely protective of my books.  I’ll politely say no, and tell them to get the book on Amazon Kindle – they are usually not that expensive.

You have picked up and put down 5 books in the last month.  How do you get over this reading slump?

I hate reading slumps and will just power through some books that I know I love.  This will slap me out of the slump really fast!

There are so many books coming out that you are dying to read, how many do you end up buying?

I will try to get the Kindle versions and read them, before buying the ones I absolutely have to have on my bookshelf.  That way I don’t spend big money on books I don’t really love.

After you purchase all of these books that you’re dying to read how long do they sit on your shelves before you get to them?

It will be dependent on the number of ARCs and review requests I get.  I try to read at least one on this shelf every month at the least…

Feel free to do this tag yourself, send me your link – I love reading these types of posts!
