The Reader Problems Book Tag

Hey, I found another fun tag! This one came from Siobhan’s Novelties — thanks, Siobhan!

1. You have 20,000 books on your TBR. How do you decide what to read next?

Okay, this is not a problem for me because – what? – I would never allow my TBR to grow that immense. However, if I fell and bumped my head, thus allowing this situation to occur, I would use a TBR jar and paper pieces with each title written. I would select a piece until I’m done. Ugh. What madness, though!

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

Depends on my mood. I’ve used both options. Sometimes, I finish and hate review the book, and sometimes I put a book down never to touch it again.

3. The end of the year is coming, and you’re behind on your reading challenge. Do you try to catch up? If so, how?

Yes: graphic novels, poetry collections, and short stories

4. The covers of a series you love do not match. How do you cope?

Matching covers do not bother me. I’m good with mismatched covers.

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

Oh, I will find someone to share my feelings via Twitter or Goodreads. Trust me.


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

I cry. Look, you see me reading a book and I’m getting emotional. The book’s good. Deal.

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

Usually, I will just go ahead and read the book. Whatever I’ve forgotten tends to return as my reading progresses.

8. You do not want anyone to borrow your books. How do you politely say no when someone asks?

I simply say no. Enough said.

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

Comic books! Seriously. I read comic books to get my brain moving. Once the slump’s over, I continue with my reading list.

10. There are so many books coming out that you are dying to read. How many do you end up buying?

I talk to the voice inside and choose the books that I desperately want to read. All others usually fall to the wayside and I read them via or hopefully, I receive an ARC of said books.

My budget cannot handle what I desire.

11. After you purchase all of these books that you’re dying to read, how long do they sit on your shelf before you read them?

Some books have sat for a few hours or days. I have books that have sat for at least a year. Given my schedule, as long as I purchased you, I plan to read you.

If you want to play, come on! I tag everyone.
