Hi there everyone! I am Jan and today I am going to do a book tag. Book tags are always so wonderful to do. Today I will be doing the reader’s problems book tag which I found on Rab’s bookish planet. Hope you enjoy!
1. You have 20,000 books on your TBR. How in the world do you decide what to read next?
I would first want those books that I am most excited about then after that, maybe I can use some app/websites available to arrange all those books in alphabetical order. I have seen this work very well in libraries. I could start reading from the A section and finish reading when I land on the last book on Z section.
2. You’re halfway through a book and you’re just not loving it. Do you quit or are you committed?
That would depend entirely on my mood at that time. If I am in a really good mood I would surely complete it or if I am in a bad mood I would likely quit.
3. The end of the year is coming and you’re so close, but so far away on your Goodreads reading challenge. Do you try to catch up and how?
I would surely catch up if my schedule is not busy in the coming days. If I have free time I would catch up by spending all my time for reading.
4. The covers of a series you love do. not. match. How do you cope?
Oh honestly I would not mind it that much, but if I could I would try to exchange my book for another book that do match the other books. If it isn’t available I don’t think I would be sad about that because for me stories matter more than covers (but I do love matching covers)
5. Everyone and their mother loves a book you really don’t like. Who do you bond with over shared feelings?
I don’t like to talk much about books that I don’t like because I know how much hardwork every author must have put in behind every completed book out here. The most I could do is write a not-so-good review about it in some online platform like goodreads or amazon kindle but I always make sure to appreciate the good things even in a book I do not like.
6. You’re reading a book and you are about to start crying in public. How do you deal?
I would try not to cry in every way I can. Maybe I would stop reading the book for a while and would continue only after I am away from public eyes.
7. A sequel of a book you loved 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 only chose to read the sequel if I have loved the prior book that much. Maybe if I feel like it I would surely re- read the previous book before reading the next one.
8. You do not want anyone. ANYONE. borrowing your books. How do you politely tell people nope when they ask?
I would list out all the reasons I can’t lend them my book as politely as I can. I would tell them politely that they could borrow this same book with this same cover from their nearest public library.
9. There are so many new books coming out that you’re dying to read! How many do you actually buy?
I would buy 5-10 books if money and my schedule allow enough time for reading. (but there are chances I would buy more than this, 5-10 is just an approximation)
10.After you’ve bought the new books you can’t wait to get to, how long do they sit on your shelf before you get to them?
It depend totally on my free time once again. It could sit there anywhere from one day to a week to one month. It would be too difficult to provide a more specific approximation.
