I don't know about you, but I love a trip to the library. I have a stack of new choices sitting by my chair. I have wondered how most people pick books. Do they have a list of favorite authors they carry with them? Do they hit the new release table?
I don't do either. I go row by row looking at the titles and genre labels. ( I love the yellow tags) I know that's a terrible way to pick a book. If I see one that interests me I pull it down, look at the cover, and then make a very snap decision. Sometimes I will actually read the dust jacket, but not usually.
So it is no surprise that I go home with a stack of 7-10 books. Which I have no hope in finishing in the 3 week time allotted by the library. Therefore, when I start a book, it has one maybe two chapters to keep me interested. Otherwise I lay in the stack to be returned. There are too many good books out there to get stuck in a bad book! Sadly, I end up taking books back I didn't have time to read. Everyone knows you must get new books instead of rechecking out the unread books! ;)
Current list of books to read:
1. Murder with Peacocks
2. Garden of Secrets Past
3. Body Lines
4. Tears of Pearl
This is the smallest my stack has been in weeks. I might actually get to read all of them!
