A day late and a dollar short...

seems to be the theme lately. Since I missed my Sunday Salon post yesterday I thought I would post an update on my projects for this week. When I arrived home last week from New Orleans there were 7 packages of books waiting for me. I finished Songs for the Missing by Stewart O'Nan and started The Gargoyle which I can't put down.

I was not all that thrilled with Songs for the Missing. I am behind in my reviews but will have them posted this week.

How do you choose what to read next? Do you read books in the order you buy/receive them? Do you have to be in a certain mood to read something? Lately I have been trying to read things in the order I receive them. I have committed to reviewing books so I feel that I owe a review in a timely manner.

I hope you have a great reading week!

I have a lot of books that have to be reviewed by a certain time (like songs for the missing which I actually am enjoying) so I try to read in that fashion. Ever since I started book blogging in earnest, it's rare for me to able to leisurely choose something I want to read.

Whoa. I thought I was the only person reading O'Nan. Glad I'm not, even if this one disappointed.

As for how I pick what to read next? I try to make it a combination of something different from what I read last and what's been here the longest. Don't ask how long that's been. It's not a pretty answer.
