53 books and nothing to read

17 Jan

Oh, the agony of a Kindle.  I have 53 books in my “to be read” category.  Seriously, 53 books.  That’s along with 6 in my currently being read category . . .

and I don’t want to read any of them right now.

There’s nothing wrong with the books I have in my lists.  Some of them are excellent books that I’m really enjoying but I’m not in the mood for them right now.  I’ve been reading urban fantasy romance novels about human animal hybrids and vampires and the like.  That genre is still appealing to me buuuuuuut I hate to buy new books without knowing they are good and that I’ll like them.  What I’d really like is if my favorite authors would all come out with new books.  That would be GREAT!

Enough whining for now . . . guess I’ll go force myself to read something good that I’m not excited about . . .

    Well, I don’t come close to you on number of books on Kindle.
    I do love two features of Kindle–first, you can download a sample. I usually find that if I like the beginning of a book, I will like the rest. Not always, but usually.
    Second, with the search feature on Kindle store, I can FIND books by favorite authors. Also, Kindle “suggests” what I might like to read.
    Happy reading. Can’t say as I am into your….er, genre.

      Donna, I get a lot of my books for free which might explain why I have 50+ that now don’t sound as interesting to me. I’m not all about the vampires and sex though. I’m currently reading Willa Cather’s My Antonia and the complete works of Sherlock Holmes as well. I’m eclectic! The search features on Amazon are fantastic! I use it alot to find books. After my whining, I did go find some suggested authors that are similar and found a really interesting series that I’m enjoying so far. We’ll see . . .

    I just archived almost everything on my Kindle because I won’t tell you how many books I have that I want to read, and most of them classics, so freebies. But I was tired of Kindle rebooting all of the time. Anyway, Willa Cather and the rest of Sherlock Holmes are on my list, too. I hope you found something exciting!

    Holy moly. 53? I quit subscribing to New Yorker because I couldn’t manage to read the thing and they stacked up and filled me with guilt. At least your queue isn’t a visual blight in your house…

      Absolutely . . . I don’t feel guilty about these 53 books, however. A lot of them were free downloads that I got to see if I liked them. I’ll get around to trying them at some point. No worries but yes, what a relieve to not have a pile of 53 books leaning precariously on bedside table each night!
