So, it inevitably happens. There's a book I'm really looking forward to, I get it for review (or I don't, but later buy it). I have every intention of reading it. Every time I look at it, I think, "I really need to get to that book." People on Twitter say, "You haven't read it yet?? You need to read it!" Yet it sits there. Mocking me. I just can't ever seem to make myself pick it up.
There's something about a release date that almost kills my desire to read a book. What is that? I know I'm trying to stay ahead, but if a book is good, it's good, right? I should want to read it no matter what!
Currently I have almost an entire shelf of books (mostly ARCs) that have passed their
Some things I thought might help are:
- Saving the book until the next book in the series is about to come out. Then read both books. Maybe this will motivate me?
- Getting the book on audio. I'm better about listening to books past release than reading them. Mostly because audios don't come out so far in advance.
- Picking out one book a month that is past it's release and reading it. It's not a lot, but it's more than I'm doing now.
