"Some ways to subvert your browsing"

I don't know if this will embed properly. I'll repost if not. [ETA, I redid it as an image. Original can be found here.] Some interesting ideas for shaking up your reading. I'll stick with my current projects, but this might be fun to try in the future.

The "in between" time

I both love and hate that moment between books, when I wonder things like "Should I read something similar to the book I just finished? Should I try a completely different genre, or tone? Or should I be good and finish one of the other books I'm still in the process of reading?"


I'm browsing the Cover View of my "Owned but not yet read" collection in LibraryThing and seeing so many possible next reads. I wish I read as fast as I did back in high school.

This is the e-book version of a photo of your bookshelves. I've been working on adding my entire e-book collection to LibraryThing (in BookLikes, I limit myself to keeping track of books I'd like to buy or check out from the library). I'm not there yet, but I've got a nice chunk of it up.


I'm currently browsing through the covers view of my collection, trying to figure out which e-book to read next. I had figured the next one I'd be reading would be another BookLikes giveaway, but I have yet to hear anything about the latest two books I've won. Sad, but it's not like I don't have lots of other books in my e-TBR.


I think I might be in the mood for sci-fi/fantasy, so Jane Fletcher, Carmen Webster Buxton, Martha Wells, or an Anne McCaffrey re-read may be up next. It's so hard to decide, but I'm having fun browsing all the pretty (and a few not-so-pretty) covers.

I have absolutely no idea what to read next. I have a couple books sitting my by bedside and an abundance on my kindle but no real pull towards anything. 


Maybe I will check out the sequel to Deep Blue Secret...

The Book Lovers' Companion: What to Read Next
The Book Lovers' Companion: What to Read Next - Lionel Shriver Some great suggestions of books to read - some that will now go on my to read list.

Only minor criticisms of the book are:

1) The majority of the books are recently published - not a lot from prior to 1990
2) There seemed to be a bias towards stories with female lead characters - nothing wrong with this, but a more even balance would have been good
