  1. You are so organized! I don’t even know what I will be reading in April right now. I feel like I am such a mood reader, and sometimes if I try to force myself into a book that is on my list but I am not really keen on that style I sometimes get turned off by it even before I have started. But that’s amazing that you are so well organized, very jealous!

    • I love that you think I’m organized but I definitely don’t think I am! I feel, most of the time, like I’m flying by the seat of my pants or hanging on by the skin of my teeth. Definitely I’m a mood reader but these readalong and TBR pile challenges have challenged me to focus some of my reading and I’m enjoying it.

  2. Wow. You are WAY more organized them I am, haha. I have a Goodreads, but I haven’t been reading nearly as many regular books (non graphic novels) as I feel I should be to dwindle my list down. I’ve signed up a for a few challenges on my own blog so I’m hoping that with their help I’ll be able to knock some of my books off my list. 🙂

    • Not sure I would go with “organized” so much as “obsessive.” I think the challenges only really work depending on if you are the kind of person that feels the need to compete this way, with yourself or others. I get HUGE satisfaction of looking at the list of books I’ve already read though. HUGE.

      • I like lists. I make them for a ton of things but I’ve never sat down and made one just for the reading books I want to get done. I guess thats why I have a goodreads, haha. Except my list is so long I feel I never make a dent…Maybe I should make an actally list. It does feel rewarding when you gross something off your list.

      • You keep your to read list with you at all times? Is it on your phone? Mines over 1000 bks so I’m going to try to figure a plan before I tackle making a list, haha.

      • No, I have a little moleskine agenda and keep a list in the back. It’s not complete, and none of my lists totally match the others, but it’s handy to have with me. You never know when you may need to add to it and there is NOTHING more satisfying than crossing one off on a physical list.

      • I used to write little notes to myself with book titles on them when I was at work, then I’d find them days later stuffed in a pocket usually crinkled past the point of being able to read, haha. So now I’ve chosen to write them in my phone as soon as I can and then transfer them over to Goodreads.
