It's Monday! What Are You Reading? October 22, 2018

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It's an opportunity to visit other blogs and to comment on their reads. And ... you can add to that ever growing TBR pile! So welcome everyone. This meme started with J Kaye's Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date. And here we are!


We've been enjoying a beautiful week here this past week. Temps in the 60's so that means some patio time with the neighbors, which has been wonderful. Saturday we went to a birthday party, so it was fun to see some of the family again. Sunday started off as a lazy day but we did get some work done on my library. We are trying to get the painting done this week but all the prep before we get to that point is so tedious. If it EVER gets done, I'll be sure to post pictures. I love it already, even without the walls painted. 

I've been trying to work through my NetGalley list and get my percentage up. I was bad about requesting so many books awhile back and really fell behind. So for the older books on my list, I put them in page number order and have been reading the lower paged books first, since they are faster reads. I'm getting some crossed off and staring to feel better about my NetGalley TBR list. This seems to be working for me. How do you decide what to read next? I'm sure everyone had long lists and big piles!  

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you all have a good week. Happy reading!

    1. It was different but a good read. Thanks for dropping by.

  2. I make a monthly Google calendar which slots in review books first since I try to read them near their publication dates. Then I fill in the calendar with books from TBR mountain. The next book I read is the next one on the calendar - mostly. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

    1. Interesting Kathy. I use a Google calendar but in a slightly different way. I put titles on there that have a specific date to post. I should try it using pub dates to remind me to review. Thanks for stopping by.

  3. I decided to stop taking books from NetGalley. Stress of hitting percentages gone! My weekly updates

    1. I have really cut back and only request books from authors I really, really want to read. Hopefully, I'll get it under control soon. :)


Thanks SO much for leaving me a comment! Every single one means a whole lot to me!
