Yesterday I was cleaning out my closet and rearranging my books. I realized I haven’t read half of them, yet I keep on buying. My TBR pile is getting out of hand. My hubby started calling me a book hoarder. Hmm. I wouldn’t call a large closet and study room full of books a hoarder, but apparently he thinks so. (he should see my friends closets.)
Anyway, organizing my closet got me thinking. Should I put my books in some kind of TBR order? I would love some feedback on this. I haven’t a clue on organizing books. I guess I could do the B&N thing and put them in alphabetical order by author and genre’, but even they mess up on the genre from time to time. Maybe I could put the books I’ve read to the back, and the TBR ones to the front or maybe I could put the books I want to read on another shelf or maybe I should color code them or put them in alphabetical order by title. Argh. So many choices.
I can’t decide on how to organize them, how do you do it or do you leave it as is like I do? Oh, and I haven’t even touched the books in my kindle. So then the question of which book do I chose to read next? How do you decide which one? Or maybe you read more than one at a time like I do. I keep one on my Kindle, one on my iPad, one on my cell phone, one in the bathroom (lol), one in the bedroom, etc.
Being a book-a-holic is hard, but being an author with lots of author friends is even harder. I have to buy all of their books to show my love and support. And trying to read them all is really really really hard. Just too little time.
So answer these two questions for a chance to win an e-book of Not An Angel, and a surprise gift from New Orleans. First, do you organize your books, if so, how? Second, how do you decide which TBR book to chose next?
Blurb for Not An Angel:
Kira McCoy wants to die. Losing her husband and daughter tragically left her without hope. Now her disturbed brother-in-law will stop at nothing to have her for himself. All she wants is to find peace, but instead finds herself on top of a bridge ready to end her suffering.
Protector of the Poryria, Trace Stuart is called to defend his race or embrace death. Defending humans is not part of the plan, but he cannot stop himself from saving Kira.
Realizing that he shares a special bond with Kira, Trace defies his Queen and rushes into the heart of darkness in order to rescue the woman he loves. Will Kira be able to reach past her own pain to pull them both into the light?
Thanks for having me today! Comment for a chance to win!
