"When you’re stuck for a book to read next, what do you do?"
Stuck for a book to read next? That rarely happens. I usually have an idea in mind for my next read.
I have so many books on my TBR pile that I just stand in front of them and decide what genre I want to read next. I will then pull them randomly off the shelf and read the decriptions until I know it is the ONE. And that is it!
Every once in a while, I'll start a book and find that I'm just not in the mood for it. I just go back to the TBR pile and pick again.
