Updated my challenges for this year (to date), and this is where I‘m at!

It‘s doable, I think, maybe.....luckily there is some overlap with a few picks because I‘m trying to pick books from my TBR pile to fill categories in the other lists.😬

But if I really want to get there, I‘m going to have to get more serious and follow less shiny new reading distractions... that‘s going to be a tough one.

Wish me luck when I stop by the library later. 🤭

Suet624 Those new books are like shiny pennies 1mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Suet624 I know... I‘m like the puppy in the movie UP! “Squirrel”. Or Dory... “What was it I was supposed to be doing now?” 1mo
Suet624 I have the exact same problem. And I have 5 libraries close by that I visit often to chat with the librarians. So of course I see a new book that I absolutely must read and leave my own books sitting on their shelves. 🤦🏻‍♀️ 1mo

Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Suet624 I know, it‘s such a normal #bookishproblem. I have to read it, the library had it, and who knows when I‘ll be able to get it again, meanwhile the ones I wanted enough to spend money on and buy, well I know they‘ll always be waiting safely so no rush. 🤷‍♀️ 1mo
Suet624 Exactly! 1mo
DGRachel Congratulations and good job! I‘m really struggling with MountTBR. 😔 Those shiny new books keep distracting me. 1mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @DGRachel I purposefully picked a lower peak this year to help me with my goal too, LOL...that plan doesn‘t really seem to have helped. 1mo
DGRachel 😆 That‘s what I did last year and I thought, based on the number of books I‘ve read yearly since joining Litsy and the number of books I bought last year alone, that 75 was reasonable. Obviously, I don‘t know myself well at all. I haven‘t even reached 60. 😭😭 (edited) 1mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @DGRachel 🤣 great minds think alike! 1mo

Pictured: what I should be reading today, as they are all due back to the library in the next couple of days.

#bookishproblem 😂

cjk Murderbot is awesome! 💯 2mo
UnidragonFrag Nice stack, but I mean, no shame. I love me some Murderbot! 2mo
Soubhiville You could always renew... 😈 2mo
Eyelit @Soubhiville true (if I hadn‘t already reached the maximum renewals 😂) 2mo

Am I the only one that gets hooked on using the same bookmark while reading an entire series? It seems like bad form to switch to something completely different midway through 😂

Peddler410 Wondering if this series is middle school appropriate. I think I‘ve heard it is but I don‘t remember. Thoughts? 12mo
Schnoebs @Peddler410 the actual storyline is very middle school appropriate but not all the graphic are. Many Japanese manga have a tendency to reduce the amount of clothes on their overly busty characters and this isn‘t an exception sadly. 12mo

To read or not to read - I‘m entirely undecided!! 🤷🏼‍♀️
The reviews are so mixed!! I‘m in the mood for a literary read after some rather lighthearted books & this has been sitting here forever. But not in the mood for a downer, exactly!! Have bailed on too many books lately!!
Ugh, sometimes picking a new book isn‘t fun!! 😑

Reading and cereal for dinner. I'm at the dust storm part - this guy is so smart! I can't believe the way he figures things out!

(I should though, because NASA.)
(Also, because fiction. But still.)

britt_brooke Loved this book! 3y
MrBook Love breakfast for dinner 😁👏🏻! Great book! 3y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa I loved that part, and missed all the great things they had to cut for the movie....dang time limits when making a favorite book into a film. #bookishproblem 3y
Yournewfriendsams Solid evening right there 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽 3y

#BookishProblem.. It's so frustrating when you are really into the book but have to take frequent breaks because the font is so small..😕

BookishFeminist Yes! Or sometimes it just has bad font that doesn't make it easy on your eyes. 3y
Lizpixie I'm having the same problem with A Long Way To A Small Angry Planet. I usually buy the large paperbacks or hardcovers, but this was on special. I'll know better next time🤓 3y

Varshitha @Lizpixie I will make sure I check the fonts next time too..😄 3y
LeahBergen I always have to check the font size now. It never mattered all that much when I was young. 😡 3y
Mariposa_Bookworm I'm a little spoiled by the Kindle. I like that I can change the font to a larger size. After another of school year of reading essays, I may only be able to fit one word on the screen at a time. 😕 3y
Varshitha @LeahBergen I get annoyed now mostly because I don't get much time to read these days and if something like this happens it gets me riled. 3y
Varshitha @Mariposa_Bookworm I like reading in Kindle for that very reason as well, but when I am home I usually go for physical books.. 3y
Ericmanciniwriter I don't even try with the small print mass market paperbacks anymore 3y
Varshitha @Eamann I like to read these old used books but this really tested me .. 3y
ValerieAndBooks I have quite a few mass-markets from childhood/young adulthood and many are yellowed to boot. Can't bear to get rid of them so if I reread I just try to find a larger size edition. 3y
Varshitha @ValerieAndBooks Getting rid of any book is the hardest thing I have to do.. Fortunately my physical book collection is very less. I either read a ebook or borrow from library, if I like it a lot them then I go buy them.. 3y
Zelma I know it sound ridiculous, but you could get a book magnifier. It would solve your conundrum of Lin 3y
Zelma Liking older books but having a hard time with the print. 3y
Gezemice I use reading glasses. I used to be able to read any small print, sadly this is not the case any more. But I still can read anything with propr reading glasses. They are cheap! 3y
