Musing Monday: What to Read Next?

This week’s musing asks…
How far along are you in your current read before you start thinking about what you’ll read next?
I'm usually thinking about my next read (and the one after that- and the one after that) immediately, but I often change my mind. For example, I think I told you a couple of weeks ago that I was planning on reading American Dervish next- well, that kind of fell by the wayside and I started From the Memoirs of a Non-Enemy Combatant, by Alex Gilvarry. After that, I thought I'd start To Say Nothing of the Dog but ended up with Stoner. And next I figure I'll read The Long Song, but I'll probably change my mind at some point too! Theme months help me a little with keeping organized but there's still a bit of wiggle room when it comes to what to read next. Nothing's ever written in stone and once I've started a book I very well may put it down in favor of something else! I guess what I'm saying is I read as the spirit moves me.

I have no plan and little organization, so what I pick is usually a surprise!

Haha! Me too. I think I know exactly what is coming up next, but I am easily distracted.

Great answer - I am the exact same way! There are so many good books coming out this year alone, so it's tough to stay focused on what I'm currently reading, without looking forward to the next one. :)

Here's mine:

I do plan ahead, but like knowing that I can change my mind.

I am always changing my mind too, and sometimes as I finish a book, I think I will be reading one thing, only to discover that I am being led to read something entirely different. I think this happens to me because there are just so many books that I want to read, and I have too many choices! Not that I am complaining! I love to be led my my whims when it comes to reading!

I usually have my next book in mind when I am just about finished with my current book. That being said I often change my mind based on my mood, too!
