Musing Mondays – the next book

Monday, my old foe. The regular receptionist is off all week, so that means I’m stuck doing both her job and mine. I hate doing phones. I can’t hold a thought in my head with the damn ringing and everything takes three times as long to do because I have to stop and answer it. Drive a woman to drink, I swear. It’s an odd week too because we have the 4th of July stuck in the middle. It’s like two mini weeks. It’s Monday, time for Musing Mondays!

Our question this week is: When you’re stuck for a book to read next, what do you do?

I can’t remember this ever happening to me, although it must have. Even as a child and teen, a good wander around the library would get me at least half a dozen books to read. I sometimes had to put some back because my Mom knew I’d never get through all of them in two weeks. It was usually the title that drew me in and anything fantasy was a good bet with me. Then about a decade ago, when I turned 20 or so, I found book blogs. Then I developed a long TBR list from the reviews, wish list posts, and rambling I found on book blogs and I shall never be in want of a book suggestion again. The world would have to end and even then it would take a few years to get through my backlog of books.

Actually, if you’re looking for something good then I suggest heading over to The Book Smugglers and going through the “On the Smugglers’ Radar” posts. I always find a couple books to add to the TBR pile from those posts alone.
