So, how’s it going?
I’m hoping to get a chance to go out for coffee and book review writing later today, but I thought I’d put up a post just to see how everyone is doing with The TBR Triple Dog Dare so far.
It’s been a week? Having fun yet?
I’ve removed two books from my TBR shelves forever. While neither will make it onto my list of favorite reads for 2016, I enjoyed them both.
I’m also working through my short story anthologies, which is kind of a surprise. I used to do the Deal Me In Short Story Challenge quite often, but stopped sometime this past summer for no good reason. So I’ve switched to reading batches of four stories, two from one book, two from another, in a sort of tournament of books fashion. That’s been kind of fun so far.
I am also reading YA stuff again for work. Since it’s for work it’s a TBR Dare exception. I haven’t found anything to sing about yet, but the fact that I’m reading their books has my students intrigued. Friday, I had my English classes vote on which of the two books I’d picked out I should read this weekend. The kids got into it. The book that wasn’t selected is already in demand. I’ve read 80 pages of the one they chose, Texting the Underworld, but I may skip ahead to the final chapters. Reading the first and last chapters is a well-respected children’s librarian strategy. You can read just about everything that comes in if you just read the first and last chapters.
So, what have you found on your TBR shelf this week?
