If I could read all day, I would. And I would never even scrape the surface of all the amazing fiction that exists. From the Greek tragedies to the latest Barbara Kingsolver novel (out November 6th!!!), there is so much literature. So much to read. And there is always new fiction coming out as well. It’s hard to keep up.
So, I really like it when you can see what the top choices in fiction, non-fiction, and memoir are for the year. Since, we are getting close to the end of the year, Goodreads has sent out its nominees for best books of 2012 by genre. I can’t rightfully vote in this contest because I haven’t read all the books, but what I can do is browse the nominees and add them to my to-read list. I spent some time doing this tonight. Thanks to Goodreads, I now have 3 new books, 1 on pre-order, and 10 more waiting to be rotated in. I’m looking forward to great, new literature, but I’m also trying to keep up with some older selections I’ve been putting on the back-burner for a while.
I’m looking forward to the mildly cool weather, because I’m going to just read and read and read. And no one can bother me about that. And of course, I will let you in on the gems that really stand out. Maybe I’ll even get through some of my back-burner books too! Don’t e surprised if you see 6 or more books on my Currently Reading tab. The more important thing is that I am reading.
How do you select which books you will be reading?
