Musing Mondays

Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about your to be read list…

As a follow up to last week's question, Joseph asked how you keep track of your tbr list. Do you have a paper list or on your computer? Do you take it with you when you go shopping? How do you decide what gets added to it?

Well, I can tell what I haven't read by what I haven't rated on my LibraryThing, but when it comes to my immediate TBR priorities- things that I have to review, or recent or upcoming releases I'm trying to stay current on- I do a couple of things. First of all, if I have agreed to review a book, I tag it "have to read" on LibraryThing and I check that tag periodically, even though I'm pretty good at remembering what I'm supposed to do. I tag my ARCs by month (09Jan, 09Feb, etc.) to help me keep track of what's current. For "me" books that I just want to read for myself, I use the tag "want to read" and check that when I have the opportunity to read one of those. Oftentimes the three categories overlap and I try to make as much time as possible for the "me" books!
