This week's musing asks:
When you’re stuck for a book to read next, what do you do?
I used to get stuck for my next read all the time until I joined Shelfari online. Back then, I was not aware of the many different authors out there or the types of genres that I would like. Shelfari was able to introduce me to the book world.
There are many challenges through Shelfari, and this has kept me on my toes as to what I would read next. I am co-administrator for a group called Bibliophile on Shelfari so I have to read some of its BOTMs and post discussion questions. Then I also participate in Play Book Tag and Booktivity. Play Book Tag has a monthly tag theme where you are suppose to read a book with that tag. Booktivity has a montly book characteristic theme where you are suppose to read a book with it. These groups have made it easier for me to come up with my next read.
I also go to Barnes and Noble and the library, or I simply go on Youtube to watch some book vloggers. I like browsing through books so going to the library or a book store helps me see what interests me. Watching book vloggers introduces me to the what's hot out there or what books are really interesting. It has actually increased my TBR list :/
